MaxCyte Inc's (LON:MXCT) technology may have a role to play in the treatment of sickle cell disease (SCD).

Pre-clinical data presented Friday (May 18) at an industry assessed the use of  non-viral CRISPR-mediated gene-correction in the treatment of the blood disorder.

The data from work with the National Institutes of Health's National Heart Lung and Blood Institute demonstrated the potential of MaxCyte's technologies and the non-viral CRISPR gene correction in the treatment of SCD.
