"Because viruses play a central role in gene therapy, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at how viruses work. Also, what is a virus? Are viruses alive? Check out this short video. Try to understand how an AAV virus, packed with coding parts of the NF2 gene can infect Schwann Cells. What happens after the AAV virus is bound to a Schwann cell? It does as any virus would do. It injects the DNA it's carrying into the host cell. In this case a Schwann cell. In order to reproduce viruses hijack cells DNA transcription mechanisms. The video is captioned." - Margaret Reynolds, Science Of NF2What is a virus and how do they work? In the first video in the series, WinchPharma Science & Health look at viruses, how they infect cells and reproduce, as... ...

NF2 BioSolutions

We can't believe that 2018 is almost over! So much has happened at NF2 BioSolutions since our formation in September of 2018. We feel very blessed.

Highlights
We’ve raised over $130,000 thanks to you and people like you.

- Today we are accelerating a gene therapy initiative, of Dr Brenner, that has been shown, in mice, to kill the NF2 tumors that cause deafness, facial palsy, balance dysfunction and sometimes death (nf2biosolutions.org/research-initiatives/). Dr. Gary Brenner said recently, “I am highly optimistic that this gene therapy can represent an efficacious and safe therapy for patients with schwannoma – whether associated with NF2, schwannomatosis or sporadic tumours”. Gary J Brenner, MD, PhD, Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School. Director, Massachusetts General Hospital

- Your money will be used to fund the next step of Dr Brenner research: the toxicology study.

- In addition to Dr Brenner’s therapy, we are actively engaging gene therapy and NF2 researchers and clinicians to begin a gene replacement program that will essentially introduce a functional copy of the mutated NF2 gene back into the cells of NF2 patients.

- We’ve started to put together a worldwide network of outreach teams called the Ambassador Program. We are already in 15 locations in the world and still growing.

- We reached 1000+ followers of our facebook page.

- We will hold our first official fundraiser event “Axe Out NF2” on February 2, 2018 in USA Pennsylvania (West Chester) at Tilted Axes . We will throw axes at targets. It will be fun! More info soon!

- Our scientific advisory board and professional advisory board are growing, with the latest addition of Dr Joseph Kissil renowned NF2 researcher, Dr Yohay NF Neurologist and the serial entrepreneur/NF2er Onno Faber (RDMD).

- We are 100% volunteers and touched by NF2, so far we have virtually no overhead, no salaries and no operations costs.

Please donate below to benefit from US 2018 tax deductions.
You can be sure that we won’t stop until we save our kids! Have a wonderful Holiday!
