Audentes Therapeutics (BOLD) started trading on the Nasdaq on 19 July 16

Audentes is one of the leaders in the nascent field of gene therapy, using an adeno-associated virus, or AAV, vector to carry a healthy copy of a gene into a cell. The viral vectors essentially are vehicles, modified so they aren't infectious but can slip past a cell's normal defenses to deliver the healthy gene.

Audentes sold 5 million shares at $15 apiece in its IPO. The $75 million raise will help Audentes fund clinical work it’s doing on rare diseases such as X-Linked myotubular myopathy, Crigler-Najjar Syndrome, and Pompe disease.
