Treatment Of Children With Hereditary Diseases
July 17, 2014 01:04


Russia launched a program for the treatment of children with hereditary diseases.

Human Stem Cell Institute launches the Adam Nash Program for treatment of children with hereditary diseases in Russia, the press service of the HSCI reports. Adam Nash, the world's first child born to save his sister from a genetic disease, Fanconi anemia, came into the world in 2000 in the United States by the procedure of preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD).

Without a stem cell transplant the girl would not live up to 10 years. A histocompatible donor suitable for Molly Nash was not found, and her parents decided to undergo the procedure of IVF using PGD to select a healthy embryo. At the time of the birth of Adam Nash, cord blood stem cells were saved and subsequently injected into his sister and saved her life.

For him this procedure was completely safe since the blood was not even taken from him but from the umbilical cord before it was disposed. In 2013, HSCI opened in Moscow the unique "Genetico" center with PGD laboratory. Today, this center offers a wide range of services in genetic diagnosis and counseling families for early detection and prevention of diseases with hereditary component

Parents, who have addressed to “Genetico” to take advantage of PGD for the birth of a healthy baby and treating the elder child with a genetic disease, become participants of the Adam Nash Program. Under this program, in 2014 in Russia first child was born to save his older sister diagnosed with Shwachman–Diamond syndrome.
