  • Decades of National Institutes of Health Research help lead to first FDA-approved Treatment for Progeria

    Decades of National Institutes of Health Research help lead to first FDA-approved Treatment for Progeria | site |


    (Information included in a National Institutes of Health [NIH] news release media advisory: November 23, 2020)

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved the first treatment for progeria, a rare and fatal pediatric disease, characterized by dramatic, rapid aging beginning in childhood. The treatment was made possible thanks in part to work at the National Institutes of Health over nearly two decades to identify and understand the function of the mutant gene and the protein it encodes (called progerin), with the goal of identifying new therapeutic drugs for the disorder. Progeria, also known as Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome, is a rare, multisystemic disease that causes premature aging and premature death in children. Progeria is caused by a genetic mutation in the LMNA (“lamin A”) gene, which helps maintain the normal
