PPMD Is Seizing This Moment to Explore the Potential of CRISPR/Cas9 in Duchenne

It is the holidays – time for giving and laughter and hope. Hope comes in many forms, but I would imagine that for many reading this blog, hope comes in the form of a cure for Duchenne.  Could CRISPR/Cas9 offer hope for treating Duchenne? As background, CRISPR/Cas9 is a method that allows scientists to find very specific targets within DNA, or our genetic code, and make specific cuts…See More

Duchenne Research Update: October 2016

When I first joined the Duchenne community in 2009 at Children’s National Medical Center, I remember thinking that I was walking into a critical juncture in Duchenne history. There were three compounds in the clinic (drisapersen, ataluren, and eteplirsen aka Exondys 51) with more waiting in the wings to go into…See More

PPMD Awards University of Washington Grant to Support Technology to Help Optimize Gene Therapy

The promise of gene therapy continues to build momentum, in Duchenne and also in other conditions. Much has been learned about the immunological and delivery challenges of the approach since gene therapy’s early attempts in the 1990s.In Duchenne, some of the early work in gene therapy ended with immune system reactions to the new dystrophin that was expressed by the transfected gene. But this was not the only hurdle the technology faced in Duchenne; we had to develop a viral vector that did not…See More

Dear, Abby Bronson!  I prepared a project to help children in Ukraine, I sent it to our Ministry. I constantly learn something about muscular dystrophy from your sites. Finally, the Ukrainian neuroscientists have interested in my materials. I have seen that I should help not only my family but also to other families in Ukraine. We must see how parents live in USA.I invite you and somefamily to us in Ukraine. Our family is ready to welcome you and we want very strong to stay to summer camp in USA with my son. He is 9,5. Help us. How I can do it? In Ukraine isn`t camp for Muscular Dystrophy. I'm afraid to lose time.

Hello! My name is Margarita, I live in Ukraine, Kirovograd
About my family:
. I have a son, who is ill with Duchenne. He is now 9 years old. Doctors diagnosed the illness at the age of 6.5 . In Ukraine, no one treats such children. Therefore, we are forced to travel to Israel each year to see a neurologist. There we learned how to swim in the pool, ride a horse, do special exercises (such as stretching) every day. For 2 years we have been able to stop the disease. But I would like to communicate with the American parents and doctors who probably know more about new medicines or methods for treating this condition.
I want to participate in different Parents’ Projects for Muscular Dystrophy online. There may already be drugs that can cure my son. Please help us, because we are lonely here with our problem.
