Description

Sickle Cell + Gene Therapy: An Honest and Open Discussion About Gene Therapy 


This episode features Aeon Chintersingh, an adult who underwent gene therapy to cure sickle cell disease and Dr. Isaac Odame, a specialist and medical director of Hematology/Oncology at SickKids in Toronto.


We discuss fertility, chemotherapy, genotypes, the word 'cure' and much more.


We would like to thank our sponsor Aruvant Sciences, a company focused on developing gene therapies for rare diseases. Aruvant Science has an ongoing clinical trial in sickle cell that is currently enrolling participants. Please go to momentumtrials.com for more information on the clinical trial.
