Sock-it 2 Hunter Syndrome - MPS2

Doctors at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio have conducted research that leads them to believe that a cure for MPS II has been discovered. Dr. Fu and Dr. McCarty have conducted years of research and are relying on parent-led organizations to raise the funds needed to carry the drug development process through clinical trials. Human clinical trials involve administering the drug in a controlled environment to gather data on efficacy. This is usually done before making the drug available to all affected patients.

These funds will cover expenses such as securing the facility where the clinical trials will be held, along with building of vectors that will be used to introduce the cure to our boys. The remaining balance of the $2.5 million dollars will be used to cover medical costs, room and boarding costs, and miscellaneous costs for the patients who will be participating in the clinical trial. If all deadlines are met, Doctors hope to start clinical trials by end of Summer 2018.
