A Groundbreaking Gene Therapy In Record Time to Cure His Son with SPG50 Sets a New Course For Future Rare Disease Treatments with Terry Pirovalakis

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 154 A Groundbreaking Gene Therapy In Record Time to Cure His Son with SPG50 Sets a New Course For Future Rare Disease Treatments with Terry Pirovalakis Terry Pirovolakis is a rare disease crusader and father to Michael, who has SPG50. He made a gene therapy for his son in only 18 months. The work he has done will also transform the way rare diseases are treated. He's hosting free monthly 101, 102 and 103 gene therapy courses to help other families advance their programs. Learn more by visiting Terry's website, cureSPG50.org or by connecting with him on social media. EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Can you share a little bit about Michael's diagnosis? Michael was born healthy, but wasn't hitting milestones like my other children. We learned through testing that he had a disease called Spastic Paraplegia Type 50 (SPG50). Shortly after the diagnosis, we began researching and reading articles, we flew to meet with experts in gene therapy and signed a contract a month later to start a gene therapy program which kicked off our journey. Is there a point where it's too late for gene therapy? I don't think it's ever too late for gene therapy. My perspective is that if children can get it from 1-6 months old, gene therapy can be a cure. After that, gene therapy becomes less of a cure and more of a treatment. Unfortunately for Michael, gene therapy is a treatment and not a cure, but our goal is to cure kids by getting SPG50 on the newborn screening panel so we can cure kids- not treat them.  What is your advice for other families who are on a journey to fund gene therapy and drug development? Families have to understand that a lot of money has to be raised and they have to be willing to give up a lot to get the money you need. You have to have a solid family and the right team. Get your community involved, get friends and family involved and think outside the box to spread awareness about your disease. I encourage families to take my classes and reach out to me throughout the gene therapy and drug development journey.

From Chinese Linguist to Chief Medical Officer

My guest today is Dr. Richard Parker, Chief Medical Officer at Arcadia, an exciting venture focused on using "big data" to ensure the right information about care is delivered to the right patient when needed. What a concept! For the math nerds out there, they harness millions of data points—like your diagnosis, medications, zip code, etc.—to create a sort of flowchart and navigation tool. Rich tells me it's not Skynet, and we are not at the dawn of a robot apocalypse. What's even more interesting is how Rich got started in his career in Chinese linguistics and how that enabled him to his role as Chief Medical Officer for Beth Israel Deaconess in Massachusetts. Oh, and we rifle through the 1980s and compare notes on how dangerous playgrounds used to be.

Improving Inclusion Practices in Schools with the Inclusive Educator – Bre Gastaldi

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 153 Improving Inclusion Practices in Schools with the Inclusive Educator - Bre Gastaldi Bre Gastaldi is known as the Inclusive Educator and she teaches school districts how to implement inclusive practices. She's also a special education teacher. She joins me for a discussion on diversity and inclusion in all aspects of education and the school setting.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Can you tell us about yourself and your work as an inclusion expert? I got into special education by way of my own neurodivergence. I was diagnosed with ADHD in middle school, studied psychology as an undergrad and I started understanding myself better and fell in love with psychology and working with kids. I got my masters degree and began teaching, eventually becoming an inclusion specialist. I was also looking for ways to include my students in a variety of activities. My students excelled because of it, the school culture shifted and I began working with other teachers and administrators to improve inclusion practices. I have since branched off and became the Inclusive Educator.  What is the biggest misconception around inclusion? Inclusion isn't a program because true inclusion exists within your child's general education classroom- it's not a class they go to. If only certain students can be in an inclusion program, it isn't inclusive. Inclusion is an undeniable sense of belonging from the time a child walks into a classroom. It's a feeling of belonging and being valued and celebrated.  How does inclusion affect a general education student? A 2008 analysis of several studies found that inclusion had a neutral to positive impact on neurotypical students in 81% percent of studies. When there's an inclusive classroom and culture, all students are learning more. School districts doing a good job being inclusive reveals an increase of graduation rates. Inclusion impacts general education students in that they improve in academics, but they're also socializing with a reduced sense of fear, they generally have a stronger self esteem and better sense of self. What are your top tips for inclusion? Let your child lead because they will tell you one way or another when they're ready to participate more. As a parent, be intentional about making positive connections with the multidisciplinary team. If your child isn't being included, start slowly with focusing on what their interests are.

Ovarian cancer is the deadliest gynecological cancer today. With the much-needed innovation in ovarian cancer research, it’s crucial women understand the complexity and potential for change in this disease. For Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, we spoke with Oriana Papin-Zoghbi, the CEO and Co-founder of AOA Dx.

In this episode, we discuss current insights into ovarian cancer research and prognosis. Oriana shares some ovarian cancer stories and what AOA Dx is doing to help women catch the disease early. We cover the average ovarian cancer survival rate, some symptoms of ovarian cancer, and ways to advocate for better testing in women’s health. Discussed in this episode: Ovarian cancer statistics  What can women do to catch early signs of ovarian cancer? Difficulties doctors and women face in ovarian cancer diagnosis  Current diagnostic testing processes  The founding story of AOA Dx Why has it been so hard to get a diagnosis for ovarian cancer?
