Rocket's first two clinical programmes using LVV-based gene therapy are for the treatment of Fanconi Anemia, a difficult to treat genetic disease that leads to bone marrow failure
and potentially cancer, and Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency-I (LAD-I), a serve pediatric genetic disorder that causes recurrent and life-threatening infections which are frequently fatal.
Fanconi Anemia (FA) is a rare pediatric disease characterized by bone marrow failure
, malformations and cancer predisposition.
The genetic disorder causes bone marrow failures
and leads to a predisposition for cancers, and can cause birth and developmental defects.
