Haemophilia gene therapy

Friday 15 July 2022


The European Medicines Agency has recommended the conditional approval of Roctavian (valoctocogene roxaparvovec), a gene therapy for haemophilia A. If approved, it would be the first gene therapy for this disease in Europe. The conditional approval carries with it a requirement that the developer, BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc, provide follow-up data from ongoing clinical trials to show the therapy continues to be safe and efficacious for patients.
