Our Mission ... In Action
Giving you education & support for you and your family is our top priority. Our programs will help you connect with others, give you important information on care, and gain support.
We fight to protect access to quality healthcare and treatments we need to live healthy lives, but we can't do it without your voice. Discover how you and your family can make a big difference by joining our advocacy efforts.
We provide year-round events and fundraisers to spread awareness, educate and generate crucial resources in support of our mission. We hope to see you at our next event!
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has accepted CSL Behring’s Biologics License Application (BLA) for priority review of etranacogene dezaparvovec, an investigational gene therapy for hemophilia B.
Etranacogene dezaparvovec, also known as CSL222, consists of adeno-associated virus serotype 5 (AAV5), which function as a delivery vector carrying a gene cassette with the Padua variant of factor IX (FIX). AAV5 is a variant of the type of the adeno-associated virus vectors (AAVs) investigated in multiple ongoing gene therapy clinical trials.
