- The FDA put the study of giroctocogene fitelparvovec on hold in November 2021. Pfizer hit pause after seeing some patients experience blood clotting protein factor VIII activity greater than 150%.
- In March this year, the FDA lifted the clinical hold, but Pfizer kept the voluntary pause in place while working to meet “all necessary conditions,” including approval of updated trial protocols by regulatory authorities.
- In May, Sangamo said the trial would start in Q3 of 2022, with data expected in 2H of 2023. The target for the data drop is further delayed to the first half of 2024.
