Nat Biotechnol 34:738-745. doi: 10.1038/nbt.3584
Summary: To demonstrate correction of a clinically relevant disease, we employed CD45-SAP in a mouse model of sickle cell anemia and demonstrated our method achieved >90% donor cell chimerism, all mice in three groups (18/18), resulting in complete disease correction (red blood cell counts, hemoglobin levels, hematocrit levels and reticulocyte frequencies were returned to normal). If these pre-clinical results can be successfully translated to the clinic, it would greatly reduce conditioning-related toxicities and expand the use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
