Fund research to cure Angelman Syndrome

FAST UK continue to fund the much needed Natural History study (NHS) with Oxford University to facilitate clinical trials in the UK.

A natural history study’s main use is to support the development of safe and effective drugs and biological products for rare diseases. A natural history study collects information about the natural history of a disease in the absence of an intervention, from the disease’s onset until either its resolution or the individual’s death. Although knowledge of a disease’s natural history can benefit drug development for many disorders and conditions, natural history information is not usually available or is incomplete for most rare diseases; therefore, natural history information is particularly needed for these diseases hence the need for the NHS in the UK.

In the United States, research funded by FAST has identified a way to turn on a gene that is normally turned off in the brain. FAST US took this discovery and started its own biotechnology company to move this technology from the laboratory into human clinical trials. Trials were initiated in 2020 and early preliminary results suggest this therapeutic may effectively treat the symptoms of Angelman syndrome, and trials are underway in the UK already but funding is necessary for these trials to continue so please help today by joining FAST’s CAN Campaign or donating today.

At FAST UK we encourage anyone young, older, old, fit, un-fit, able or less able to take part in challenges throughout the country, and the world, if appropriate and possible. We will support you in the process from start to finish, as well as helping to find and fund places (within a certain limit) if it is possible.

If you are looking for a challenge, small or big, please contact us directly at info@cureangelman.org.uk and we will do our utmost to help. A good starting point is to look at https://findarace.com/ and contact us and we can go from there.
