Amicus Therapeutics has announced they have begun a rolling Biologics License Application (BLA) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for their drug combination, AT-GAA, to treat late onset Pompe disease (LOPD).
An excellent review article focused on the latest developments in Pompe disease research was recently published by Naresh K. Meena and Nina Raben from the NIH.
Persons with genetic conditions cannot be asked by their employers, or any other agency, to disclose that information.
Results from the COMET study were recently reported showing neoGAA (avalglucosidase alfa), the newer enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) currently in development, to be as effective as the currently approved ERT, Myozyme (alglucosidase alfa), in persons with late-onset Pompe disease.
This year’s annual general meeting will be held on June 14, 2020, at 4pm EST.
New Patients and Families
Welcome to the wonderful world of rare disease. It’s a much different world than it was a few years ago. There’s so much information out there, and there are places to turn for support and friendship. With social media, especially Facebook and Twitter, there are answers.
New Brunswick, 2014
