    Sangamo BioSciences, Inc., a clinical stage biopharmaceutical company, focused on the research, development, and commercialization of engineered DNA-binding proteins for therapeutic genome editing and gene regulation. Its proprietary zinc finger DNA-binding protein (ZFP) technology enables specific genome modification and gene regulation. The ZFPs can also be linked to a cleavage domain of a restriction endonuclease to create zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs), proteins that can be used to specifically modify DNA sequences by adding or knocking out specific genes; and ZFP transcription factors (ZFP TFs), proteins that can be used to turn genes on or off. Its lead ZFP Therapeutic candidate include SB-728-T, a ZFN-mediated autologous cell product for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) is in Phase II and Phase I/II clinical trials. The company also engages in Phase I/II studies of in vivo genome editing applications of ZFP Therapeutics for hemophilia B and MPS I, a lysosomal storage disorder (LSD); and proprietary preclinical programs in hemophilia A, other LSDs. It has collaborative partnerships with Biogen Inc. (Biogen) to research, develop, and commercialize the preclinical ZFP Therapeutic development program in hemoglobinopathies, including sickle cell disease and beta-thalassemia; and with Shire International GmbH to research, develop, and commercialize the preclinical ZFP Therapeutic development program in Huntington’s disease.
