Mammoth Biosciences to Present at Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy

Company to present preclinical therapeutic data on novel ultracompact CRISPR systems

BRISBANE, Calif. — May 1, 2024 — Mammoth Biosciences, a biotechnology company harnessing its proprietary next-generation CRISPR gene-editing platform to create potential one-time curative therapies, today announced that Lucas Harrington, Ph.D., Mammoth’s co-founder and Chief Scientific Officer, will present new preclinical data at the American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy (ASGCT) 27th Annual Meeting in Baltimore, May 7 – 11, 2024.

The oral presentation will describe the optimization of Mammoth’s novel ultracompact CRISPR platform, and its performance in targeting the APOC3 gene, a primary genetic driver of triglyceride metabolism, in humanized mouse models and non-human primates.

“Our findings demonstrate the potential of Mammoth’s ultracompact CRISPR systems to deliver in vivo therapies in the liver, beginning with our lead program targeting APOC3, a key factor in familial chylomicronemia syndrome and severe hypertriglyceridemia,” Dr. Harrington said. “We look forward to sharing these data with the scientific community at ASGCT, and to providing future updates as we continue to develop our novel ultracompact nucleases and associated gene-editing technologies to better target tissues beyond the liver and to positively impact the lives of patients living with genetic disease.”
