Lentivector gene therapy for X-linked chronic granulomatous disease (X-CGD) has proven to be a viable approach, but random vector integration and subnormal protein production from exogenous promoters in transduced cells remain concerning for long-term safety and efficacy. A previous genome editing-based approach using SpCas9 and an oligodeoxynucleotide donor to repair genetic mutations demonstrated the capability to restore physiological protein expression, but lacked sufficient efficiency in quiescent CD34+ hematopoietic cells for clinical translation. Here, we show transient inhibition of p53-binding protein 1 (53BP1) significantly increased (2. Read More
