Marfan Syndrome

Marfan syndrome is an autosomal dominant disorder of connective tissue with abnormal features in the heart, the eye, and the skeleton. It is associated with mutations in the gene encoding fibrillin, a major element of extracellular microfibrils of connective tissue. Discover the latest research on Marfan syndrome here.

4H Leukodystrophy

4H Lekodystrophy involves hypomyelination, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and hypodontia. It is also known as POLR-3Related Leukodystrophy. 4H syndrome symptoms include delayed or abnormal puberty, issues with central nervous system signal transmission, abnormal development of teeth, and symptoms tend to progressively get worse over time. There is not yet a known cure.

AAV-based Gene Therapy

Adeno-associated virus (AAV)-based gene therapy is a biological vector that is being researched to be used as a potential therapeutic option. This gene therapy is designed to insert fragments of DNA into targeted cells to help treat diseases, such as hemophilia a. Discover the latest research on AAV-based gene therapy here.

Acute Myeloid Leukaemia & RNA

Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is a common hematological type of cancer. As the population ages, there has been a rise in the frequency of AML. RNA expression has been used to see if there are different genetic profiles that exist within AML and whether these may underpin the variations in survival rates. Here is the latest research on AML and RNA.
