CAMBRIDGE, Mass., April 23, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prime Medicine, Inc. (Nasdaq: PRME), a biotechnology company committed to delivering a new class of differentiated, one-time curative genetic therapies, today announced that the Company will present preclinical data highlighting the broad potential of its Prime Editing technology and supporting the advancement of its programs at the 3rd Annual LNP Formulation and Process Development Summit (Boston, April 29-May 2, 2024); the American Society of Cell & Gene Therapy 27th Annual Meeting (Baltimore, May 7-11, 2024); and TIDES USA Oligonucleotide & Peptide Therapeutics Conference (Boston, May 14-17, 2024).

“In the short time since Prime Editing was first discovered, we have made incredible strides advancing this technology, developing and optimizing Prime Editors for programs across our core areas of focus, and creating new delivery systems that we believe will permit our Prime Editors to safely and effectively access target tissue,” said Keith Gottesdiener, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Prime Medicine. “This progress is underscored by our upcoming presentations, which will feature new findings from across our platform and initial pipeline, including new preclinical data for our first program expected to enter clinical development – PM359 for chronic granulomatous disease (CGD), a serious, life-threatening rare disease. In addition to our presentations, we congratulate our Co-Founder, David Liu, on receiving the ASGCT Outstanding Achievement Award, highlighting his work in the gene editing field, including his contributions to the discovery and advancement of Prime Editing. We look forward to coming together with the scientific research community and highlighting our leading position in the field of next-generation gene editing.”

About Prime Medicine

Prime Medicine is a leading biotechnology company dedicated to creating and delivering the next generation of gene editing therapies to patients. The Company is deploying its proprietary Prime Editing platform, a versatile, precise and efficient gene editing technology, to develop a new class of differentiated one-time curative genetic therapies. Designed to make only the right edit at the right position within a gene while minimizing unwanted DNA modifications, Prime Editors have the potential to repair almost all types of genetic mutations and work in many different tissues, organs and cell types. Taken together, Prime Editing’s versatile gene editing capabilities could unlock opportunities across thousands of potential indications.

Prime Medicine is currently progressing a diversified portfolio of investigational therapeutic programs organized around core areas of focus: hematology and immunology, liver, lung, ocular and neuromuscular. Across each core area, Prime Medicine’s initial focus is on genetic diseases with a fast, direct path to treating patients, and those with high unmet need not currently addressable using other gene editing approaches. Over time, the Company intends to maximize Prime Editing’s broad and versatile therapeutic potential to expand beyond the genetic diseases in its initial pipeline, potentially including immunological diseases, cancers, infectious diseases, and targeting genetic risk factors in common diseases, which collectively impact millions of people.
