REGENXBIO Inc., a pharamaceutical company specializing in gene therapy, just shared that it launched a Investigational New Drug application to conduct Phase I/II trials on the new therapy they’re developing, RGX-121. RGX-121 is a gene therapy for children with the rare disease Mucopolysaccharidosis Type II (MPS II), also known as Hunter syndrome. MPS II is a rare, progressive disorder, caused by a genetic mutation. To learn more about MPS II, click here.
