In the News

More research on better therapies for Citrullinemia, in the news just a few days ago:

“Dimension Therapeutics, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company advancing novel, adeno-associated virus (AAV) gene therapies targeting the liver, a central organ for devastating rare diseases, today announced a comprehensive research collaboration and license agreement with the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania to advance treatments for inherited metabolic diseases. Exclusive programs under the collaboration will address citrullinemia type 1, phenylketonuria (PKU), and Wilson disease, rare diseases which often have devastating outcomes for patients and their families and for which there are few effective treatment options.”

Says Dr. James Wilson, M.D., Ph.D., professor of Medicine and Pediatrics and director of the Orphan Disease Center at Penn Medicine: “We believe these therapies, based on extensive, peer-reviewed preclinical validation and testing, have the potential to transform patient care and give clinicians new options to treat previously intractable diseases.”

Keep the faith, friends! New research is happening every day that may one day cure my special baby.
