Human gene therapy

Genetically modified adipose tissue-derived stem/stromal cells, using simian immunodeficiency virus-based lentiviral vectors, in the treatment of hemophilia B.

PMID 23360488


Hemophilia is an X-linked bleeding disorder, and patients with hemophilia are deficient in a biologically active coagulation factor. This study was designed to combine the efficiency of lentiviral vector transduction techniques with murine adipose tissue-derived stem/stromal cells (mADSCs) as a new method to produce secreted human coagulation factor IX (hFIX) and to treat hemophilia B. mADSCs were transduced with simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV)-hFIX lentiviral vector at multiplicities of infection (MOIs) from 1 to 60, and the most effective dose was at an MOI of 10, as determined by hFIX production. hFIX protein secretion persisted over the 28-day experimental period. Cell sheets composed of lentiviral vector-transduced mADSCs were engineered to further enhance the usefulness of these cells for future therapeutic applications in transplantation modalities. These experiments demonstrated that genetically transduced ADSCs may become a valuable cell source for establishing cell-based gene therapies for plasma protein deficiencies, such as hemophilia.
