Editas: Gene Therapy Specialist Leading The Way In Eye Disease

Editas is one of a triumvirate of gene-therapy companies pioneering CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing technology - the others being CRISPR Therapeutics and Intellia. Intellia's recent success in an in-human trial of patients with transthyretin (ATTR) amyloidosis has created a bull market for these companies. Editas has its own major data readout upcoming in the eye condition Leber Congenital Amaurosis 10 - which could be a major upside catalyst for the share price. At half the market cap of CRISPR and Intellia, Editas is worth considering as an addition to a balanced portfolio. The company has a relatively new management team, >$600m in cash, and a deep, albeit early stage pipeline.
