  • Publication number: 20200010521
    Abstract: This invention relates to a truncated dysferlin nucleic acid and protein, vectors (e.g., adeno-associated virus vectors) comprising the nucleic acid and methods of using the same for delivery of dysferlin to a cell or a subject and treating dysferlinopathy.
    Type: Application
    Filed: June 16, 2017
    Publication date: January 9, 2020
    Inventors: Matthew Louis Hirsch, R. Bryan Sutton
  • Publication number: 20190048363
    Abstract: This invention relates to viral vectors for delivery of alpha-L-iduronidase to the cornea of a subject and methods of using the same for treatment and prevention of corneal clouding and blindness in a subject due to mucopolysaccharidosis I.
    Type: Application
    Filed: February 22, 2017
    Publication date: February 14, 2019
    Inventors: Matthew Louis Hirsch, Richard Jude Samulski
  • Patent number: 9447433
    Abstract: This invention relates to synthetic adeno-associated virus (AAV) inverted terminal repeats (ITRs) that exhibit altered activities compared to a naturally occurring AAV ITR and methods of using the same for delivery of nucleic acids to a cell or a subject. The synthetic ITRs provide a larger packaging capacity and the ability to manipulate activities such as transduction efficiency, cellular response to transduction, and transcription.
    Type: Grant
