MT2022-41 A Phase 1/2 Study Evaluating the Safety and Efficacy of a Single Dose of Autologous CD34+ Base Edited Hematopoietic Stem Cells (BEAM-101) in Patients with Sickle Cell Disease and Severe Vaso-Occlusive Crises (BEACON Trial)


BEAM-101 is an experimental new therapy being developed for treating people with SCD and vaso-occlusive crises. The goal of this study is to see if BEAM-101 is safe and effective for people in the study. The study sponsor and study doctors would also like to see if individuals who are treated with BEAM-101 require fewer blood transfusions and experience fewer vasoocclusive crises requiring hospitalization, compared to before they received BEAM-101. This study will also measure the levels of fetal hemoglobin along with measures that assess quality of life and ability to function following treatment with BEAM-101.
