Breakthroughs in Treatment for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy

If you or a loved one suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy there may be hope.

The U.S. National Library of Medicine on PubMed Health states:

“Duchenne muscular dystrophy is an inherited disorder that involves rapidly worsening muscle weakness. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is caused by a defective gene for dystrophin (a protein in the muscles). However, it often occurs in people without a known family history of the condition.”

Gene replacement therapy is on the forefront of potential treatment for this disease, in which a healthy copy of genetic material is delivered to the affected tissues that are plagued with the genetic mutation.  A number of diseases have been positively treated with therapeutic genes in recent clinical successes, including Leber’s congenital Amaurosis and Hemophilia B.

The annual meeting of The American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy  (ASGCT) will be held this year at the Philadelphia Convention Center on May 14-20th   The Society, Feb., 2012 published this breaking article on important research written by Roland W. Herzog, PhD and Irene Zolotukhin, MS in Feb., 2012 and published by the ASGCT.

Great customer service- tracking my flight, noting it was going to land 40 minutes early…and making the adjustment so someone was there to meet me at the airport early! Also, receiving a confirmation email 24 hours prior was reassuring as well. Thank you!!

Quotes

Our driver arrived a few minutes early, was professional, courteous and got us to the airport for our early morning flight without any problem! The car was immaculate and comfortable. I especially liked the 24 hour and 2 hour trip notification that was sent via email. It was reassuring to know they were following up. I highly recommend Corporate Sedan for any transportation needs!
