Expansion Therapeutics is working hard to raise money for the sole purpose of battling generic disorders in patients. Some of these disorders include dystrophy and myoptonic. Medical reports indicate that these disorders lead to a condition called dystrophy. Donations from well-wishers have been added to the initial contribution of $55.3 million, which, the company added to its donor’s account to battle this disease. The most devastating factor about this disease is that symptoms only manifest when it is at its toxic level. Stakeholders are working towards finding the appropriate cure. Scott Rocklage of 5AM Ventures is one of the dedicated stakeholders.
To combat this disease, several stakeholders have come forward with various financing proposals. Some of these ventures include Sanofi Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, 5AM Ventures and Alexandria Venture Investments.
RNAs are known as molecules that are often transferred from the body cells DNA then converted to proteins. With time, some of the RNA toxins reach the body cells. That is when the condition progresses to DM1. At that moment, the muscles, hormonal system, the heart and respiratory system defy the normal body functioning by becoming defective.
DM1 can be hereditary. With time, the affected patient passes the gene to the next generation. Although the medical community still has subsequent challenges regarding its treatment, it is evident that there are efforts to create an effective treatment for the disease.
