Example text

I couldn’t even offer hope. That was, perhaps, the hardest lesson and most unpleasant duty I ever had as a doctor. However, now, in 2012, I am confident that physicians will soon be able to offer more than hope to families like the Singh’s. Maybe not this year and maybe not next, but soon. The hope comes from a new class of medicines that can patch the defective message that comes from a faulty gene that cause diseases like Duchenne’s. Some of these patches work by stopping the production of a disease causing protein, either within the sick patient, or by an invading bacteria or virus.

These drugs can camouflage or patch parts of the message that come from our genes. This will stop the cell producing a disease-causing protein, or allow a healthy version of the message to be delivered, rather than a faulty one. If a healthy message is delivered to the cellular machinery carrying vital blueprints, a missing protein may at last be generated. This is a fundamental change in treatment strategy that promises to render some of the most vexing of today’s diseases treatable. Many patients with rare diseases today, like Deepak, if he is still alive, simply don’t make an essential protein.

The process of discovering, developing and licensing medicinal drugs has become much more complex and costly. This trend is likely to continue, with animal testing remaining an integral and gatekeeping part of that process before any testing in humans is allowed. The regulatory hurdles for NCEs get higher because the public expects new drugs to be marketed that are effective but represent zero risk of adverse effects. This is currently impossible to guarantee, but what is seemingly expected. Attorneys line up to sue any company unlucky enough to market a drug that subsequently is shown be unsafe even in a tiny proportion of patients treated.
