Thursday, April 11, 2024
Barbara Insley, Executive Director, Rare Trait Hope Society, and her team joined John McKenzie, Chief Executive Officer, TMX Group, to close the market and raise awareness of Rare Trait Hope’s mission to support research and fund therapies to treat children with rare diseases. Rare Trait Hope Society was established to fund research and human clinical trials aimed at curing childhood rare diseases not supported by our medical system. Their current project involves funding a gene replacement therapy to cure Aspartylglucosaminuria (AGU), a fatal childhood neurodegenerative disease. As the disease progresses, AGU children develop intellectual and motor disabilities, lose their language skills and ultimately face an early death. This clinical trial is a beacon of hope, not only for children with AGU, but also for rare diseases at large. It has the potential to set precedents for future trials on neurodegenerative disorders and to expand understanding and treatment options for diseases considered uneconomical by the pharmaceutical industry.
