Voyager Therapeutics (NASDAQ:VYGR), a clinical-stage gene therapy company focused on developing life-changing treatments for severe neurological diseases today reported its fourth quarter and full year 2017 financial results, provided corporate highlights, goals and financial guidance and will host a conference call and webcast today at 8:00 a.m. ET to discuss these results.

As quoted in the press release:

“Our strong performance in 2017 was underscored by advancing our lead program VY-AADC for advanced Parkinson’s disease including successfully manufacturing our gene therapy product candidate using our baculovirus/Sf9 cell process and  commercial-scale GMP runs, completing our dose-ranging Phase 1b clinical trial as well as our posterior trajectory trial to select both an optimal dose and delivery protocol for the planned pivotal trial, and reporting longer-term Phase 1b data with clinically meaningful and durable responses with this one-time treatment,” said Steven Paul, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Voyager Therapeutics. “This performance sets us up to initiate a planned pivotal program in the middle of this year, moving this potential treatment closer to the hundreds of thousands of advanced Parkinson’s disease patients who require better control of their motor function in order to improve their quality of life.  Our preclinical pipeline targeting other severe neurological diseases continues to advance towards the clinic and with our recently announced collaboration with AbbVie, we continue to successfully leverage our gene therapy platform and expertise towards an exciting new area of vectorized immunotherapy initially to deliver monoclonal antibodies directed against tau for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related neurodegenerative diseases.”
