Key Data Points

FIX Activity in Patients With and Without AAV5 Neutralizing Antibodies

In the HOPE-B trial, 23 of 54 initial participants had detectable neutralizing AAV5 antibody (Nabs) titers at baseline, and it was possible to evaluate results for correlation between NAbs and FIX activity. The vertical axis is the observed 6 month FIX activity of those who received a full dose of vector. Patients with undetectable NAbs were plotted at 7 on the horizontal axis (the threshold of the assay). The horizontal axis shows the titers of the other participants over a range of 7–700. There was one nonresponding participant who had a titer > 3200, which is not included. As shown in the graph, FIX activity was similar in participants with and without pre-existing NAbs to AAV5 up to a titer of 678.

Adverse Events From the HOPE-B Trial
This table from the HOPE-B trial shows adverse events following transgene infusion for patients with (n = 23) and without (n = 31) detectable AAV5 neutralizing antibodies (NAbs) at baseline. As with the levels of FIX, there was no obvious difference in AEs for patients with and without AAV5 NAbs.
