Nevertheless, patients are still at risk of vector dose-limiting toxicity, particularly liver inflammation justifying the need for more efficient vectors and a lower dosing regimen. A novel increased potency FIX (designated as CB 2679d-GT), containing three amino acid substitutions (R318Y, R338E, T343R), significantly outperformed the R338L-Pad…
