“NF2 Biosolutions is putting the best labs and best minds in the race to tackle the cruelty of NF2. We continue nonstop at evaluating new approaches and techniques to tackle NF2.
So far we support four different novel therapy approaches. Since we don’t know yet if these approaches that are demonstrating promise in the lab will ultimately work as well in a human, we don’t want to focus on just one area. We want to continue to onboard new labs and researchers with novel ideas and medical approaches.
There is a new approach that we want to jumpstart. It is leveraging the Pfizer/Moderna Covid19 vaccine delivery technique (LNPs = lipid nanoparticules) as a mechanism to deliver genes to correct or induce tumor cell death. These tiny particles can enter the cells and be used instead of a vector (virus). LNP doesn’t have re-dosage limitations like we have with viruses that are being attacked by our immune system.
We need your financial support to start this research in collaboration with University of Pennsylvania (Philadephia) at the lab of Dr. Michael Mitchell. The University of Pennsylvania is the place where LNPs delivery technique originated.
$100,000 will fund a full time researcher and lab expenses for 12 months. We will reach this goal if 100 people are up to the challenge of raising $1000 each.
I am one of the 100 fighter and I need your help to reach my goal of $1000″
