January 7, 2020 GMT

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 7, 2020--

Sigilon Therapeutics, Inc., a biotechnology company developing functional cures for chronic diseases through its Shielded Living Therapeutics™ platform, today announced that Chief Executive Officer Rogerio Vivaldi, M.D., will discuss the company’s novel approach to cell therapy and outline upcoming clinical development plans at the 38 th Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco, California.

The presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 14, at 3:30PM PST (6:30PM EST) in the Elizabethan D Room.

Sigilon’s mission is to create immune-protected, bio-engineered cells to restore normal physiology in a wide range of diseases without generating fibrosis or immune rejection, potentially liberating patients from most of the challenges associated with existing treatments for serious chronic diseases. Treatments based on Sigilon’s Shielded Living Therapeutics™ platform combine advanced cell engineering with cutting-edge innovations in biocompatible materials to pioneer a new class of medicines that have been designed to provide durable, controllable and safe treatment for chronic diseases. Sigilon’s investigational therapy for hemophilia A, SIG-001, recently received an Orphan Drug Designation from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Sigilon expects to initiate a clinical trial of SIG-001 in the first half of 2020.
