Attenuation of Heparan Sulfate Proteoglycan Binding Enhances Transduction of Human Primary Hepatocytes with AAV2.

Mol Ther Methods Clin Dev 2020 Jun 13;17:1139-1154. Epub 2020 May 13.

Translational Vectorology Research Unit, Children's Medical Research Institute, The University of Sydney, Westmead, NSW 2145, Australia.

Use of the prototypical adeno-associated virus type 2 (AAV2) capsid delivered unexpectedly modest efficacy in an early liver-targeted gene therapy trial for hemophilia B. This result is consistent with subsequent data generated in chimeric mouse-human livers showing that the AAV2 capsid transduces primary human hepatocytes with low efficiency. In contrast, novel variants generated by directed evolution in the same model, such as AAV-NP59, transduce primary human hepatocytes with high efficiency. Read More

Institute of Molecular Medicine and Oncology, Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, 400016, China.

Factor VIII (FVIII) functions as a cofactor within the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation in process of FX activation by FIXa, for which deficiency results in the bleeding disorder hemophilia A. The gene of FVIII contains 26 exons that code for a 19 amino acid signal peptide and a 2332 amino acid polypeptide with a domain structure designated A1-A2-B-A3-C1-C2, of which the A domains are homologous with each other, as are the C domains. It has been well-documented that both the domains are the necessary elements for FVIII activities. Read More

How Do I Counsel Parents of a Newly Diagnosed Boy with Haemophilia A?

Hamostaseologie 2020 Feb 28;40(1):88-96. Epub 2020 Jan 28.

Paediatric Haemophilia Centre, Dr. von Hauner Children's Hospital Munich, LMU, Munich, Germany.

With the recent approval of improved therapeutic options for patients suffering from haemophilia A such as the extended half-life, recombinant factor concentrates, non-factor VIII replacement therapies like Emicizumab and after consideration of the currently running clinical trials investigating even more advanced approaches, counselling of parents of a newly diagnosed boy with haemophilia A has not become less demanding. Parents need to be informed about the pathophysiology, the chronic nature and the potential risks that are commonly associated with this disease and its treatment, depending on disease severity. Above all, the safety and efficacy of the medicinal drug(s) to be used are of utmost importance, given the impact of non-virus-inactivated plasma-derived factor concentrates in the 1980s. Read More

Development and application of global assays of hyper- and hypofibrinolysis.

Res Pract Thromb Haemost 2020 Jan 6;4(1):46-53. Epub 2019 Nov 6.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine University of North Carolina Chapel Hill North Carolina.

Numerous methods for evaluation of global fibrinolytic activity in whole blood or plasma have been proposed, with the majority based on tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) addition to initiate fibrinolysis. We propose that such an approach is useful to reveal hypofibrinolysis, but t-PA concentrations should be kept to a minimum. In this paper, we describe a low-concentration t-PA plasma turbidity assay to evaluate several congenital factor deficiencies, including plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) and plasminogen deficiency, as well as hemophilia A and B.

Adeno-associated virus (AAV)-based vectors are widely used for gene therapy, but the effect of pre-existing antibodies resulting from exposure to wild-type AAV is unclear. In addition, other poorly defined plasma factors could inhibit AAV vector transduction where antibodies are not detected. To better define the relationship between various forms of pre-existing AAV immunity and gene transfer, we studied valoctocogene roxaparvovec (BMN 270) in cynomolgus monkeys with varying pre-dose levels of neutralizing anti-AAV antibodies and non-antibody transduction inhibitors.

Increased Accumulation and Retention of rhFVIIa (eptacog beta) in Knee Joints of Hemophilia A Mice Compared to Wild-Type Mice.

Thromb Haemost 2019 Aug 26;119(8):1283-1294. Epub 2019 May 26.

Department of Cellular and Molecular Biology, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler, Tyler, Texas, United States.

Our earlier studies showed that recombinant human factor VIIa (rhFVIIa) administered intravascularly in mice disappeared rapidly from the circulation. However, a small fraction of rhFVIIa that entered extravascular remained functionally active for an extended period. The present study aims to investigate the dose-dependency of rhFVIIa accumulation and retention in mouse knee joints and test whether the hemophilic condition affects rhFVIIa sequestration in joints.

Timely and large dose of clotting factor IX provides better joint wound healing after hemarthrosis in hemophilia B mice.

Int J Hematol 2019 Jul 20;110(1):59-68. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

Shanghai Key Laboratory of New Drug Design, School of Pharmacy, East China University of Science and Technology, Shanghai, China.

Bleeding into the joints represents the major morbidity of severe hemophilia and predisposes it to hemophilic arthropathy (HA). In a reproducible hemarthrosis mouse model, we found distinct changes in thrombin activity in joint tissue homogenate following exposure of the joint to blood in wide type (WT) and hemophilic B mice. Specifically, at early time points (4 h and 24 h) after hemarthrosis, thrombin activity in WT mice quickly peaked at 4 h, and returned to baseline after 1 week. Read More

Antifibrinolytic therapy for preventing oral bleeding in patients with haemophilia or Von Willebrand disease undergoing minor oral surgery or dental extractions.

Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019 04 19;4:CD011385. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Van Creveldkliniek / Department of Haematology, University Medical Centre Utrecht, Heidelberglaan 100, Utrecht, Netherlands, 3584CT.

Background: Minor oral surgery or dental extractions (oral or dental procedures) are widely performed and can be complicated by hazardous oral bleeding, especially in people with an inherited bleeding disorder such as haemophilia or Von Willebrand disease (VWD). The amount and severity of singular bleedings depend on disease-related factors, such as the severity of the haemophilia, both local and systemic patient factors (such as periodontal inflammation, vasculopathy or platelet dysfunction) and intervention-related factors (such as the type and number of teeth extracted or the dimension of the wound surface). Similar to local haemostatic measures and suturing, antifibrinolytic therapy is a cheap, safe and potentially effective treatment to prevent bleeding complications in individuals with bleeding disorders undergoing oral or dental procedures.

Restoration of FVIII expression by targeted gene insertion in the FVIII locus in hemophilia A patient-derived iPSCs.

Exp Mol Med 2019 04 17;51(4):1-9. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Department of Physiology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, 50-1 Yonsei-ro Seodaemun-gu, Seoul, 03722, Korea.

Target-specific genome editing, using engineered nucleases zinc finger nuclease (ZFN), transcription activator-like effector nuclease (TALEN), and type II clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPR)/CRISPR-associated protein 9 (Cas9), is considered a promising approach to correct disease-causing mutations in various human diseases. In particular, hemophilia A can be considered an ideal target for gene modification via engineered nucleases because it is a monogenic disease caused by a mutation in coagulation factor VIII (FVIII), and a mild restoration of FVIII levels in plasma can prevent disease symptoms in patients with severe hemophilia A. In this study, we describe a universal genome correction strategy to restore FVIII expression in induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) derived from a patient with hemophilia A by the human elongation factor 1 alpha (EF1α)-mediated normal FVIII gene expression in the FVIII locus of the patient.

Dysfunctional endogenous FIX impairs prophylaxis in a mouse hemophilia B model.

Blood 2019 05 16;133(22):2445-2451. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Department of Biology and Pathology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC.

Factor IX (FIX) binds to collagen IV (Col4) in the subendothelial basement membrane. In hemophilia B, this FIX-Col4 interaction reduces the plasma recovery of infused FIX and plays a role in hemostasis. Studies examining the recovery of infused BeneFix (FIX) in null (cross-reactive material negative, CRM) hemophilia B mice suggest the concentration of Col4 readily available for binding FIX is ∼405 nM with a 95% confidence interval of 374 to 436 nM.

Consensus statements on vaccination in patients with haemophilia-Results from the Italian haemophilia and vaccinations (HEVA) project.

Haemophilia 2019 Jul 16;25(4):656-667. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Department of Pathophysiology and Transplantation, Università degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy.

Vaccination against communicable diseases is crucial for disease prevention, but this practice poses challenges to healthcare professionals in patients with haemophilia. Poor knowledge of the vaccination requirements for these patients and safety concerns often result in vaccination delay or avoidance. In order to address this issue, a panel of 11 Italian haemophilia and immunization experts conducted a Delphi consensus process to identify the main concerns regarding the safe use of vaccines in patients with haemophilia.
