    Episode 12:  “A Close Look At Sanfilippo” is a regular 10-minute podcast covering five hot topics regarding Sanfilippo Syndrome, a rapidly degenerative disease in children currently with no FDA-approved treatment.

    In this episode Glenn O’Neill, president and co-founder of Cure Sanfilippo Foundation, talks about things happening in Sanfilippo today, things underway, and things to come. 

    He kicks off with sharing the status of the next-generation gene therapy for Type A and B at University of North Carolina/Chapel Hill and projected timeline for clinical trials. He also announces that the Foundation is partnering with The Lundquist Institute for a new drug repurposing clinical trial that will be open to all types of Sanfilippo and likely children of all ages. He also shares the hopefully start date for this trial.

    O’Neill spends a moment talking about the Foundation’s most-recent grant funding round, where researchers globally were invited to submit their research ideas for funding. This year included a new fellowship award to stimulate early-career researchers’ interest in Sanfilippo Syndrome.

    O’Neill also touches on the upcoming Giving Tuesday and its importance relative to upcoming research projects. He shares the bold goal for this year’s Giving Tuesday, saying that “to better these children’s lives [those living with Sanfilippo Syndrome], we have to be aggressive and press the envelope.”

    He announces publication of the Foundation-led, first-ever consensus Global Clinical Care Guidelines for Sanfilippo Syndrome. The document contains extensive guidance on Sanfilippo Syndrome-specific care management and monitoring of disease-related changes, helping clinicians and families give children the best quality of life possible.

    He briefly revisits highlights from this summer’s Sanfilippo community conference, ADVANCE 2022, hosted by the Foundation, which are available as on-demand recordings. 

    For the final topic of this podcast, he answers the most-common and hardest question that people ask him and his wife.

    Episode 11: “A Close Look At Sanfilippo” is a regular 10-minute podcast covering five hot topics regarding Sanfilippo Syndrome, a rapidly degenerative disease in children currently with no FDA-approved treatment.

    In this episode Glenn O’Neill, president and co-founder of Cure Sanfilippo Foundation, shares highlights from the 2022 WOLRD Symposium conference on lysosomal storage disorders. Including meetings with biotechs newly engaging in Sanfilippo research, as well as researcher Dr. Haiyan Fu of UNC Chapel Hill for an update on the Foundation-funded gene therapy research and when the clinical trial might begin (hint: likely this year). Glenn also shares his time spent with the Wacker family, whose daughter was recently diagnosed, and how they helped him out in a pinch.

    Glenn talks about one of two poster presentations on CSF-funded projects at WORLD. The important poster presentation detailed early promising results from the Anakinra clinical trial. It reported that 82% of patients in the Anakinra trial had an improvement in at least one of the outcome measures after 8 weeks of treatment and 100% after 16 weeks.

    Glenn then dives into important insights and considerations in relation to news that Abeona Therapeutics is closing its ABO-003 gene therapy clinical trial for Type A for patients with middle and advanced phases of Sanfilippo Syndrome. He addresses if this impacts whether gene therapy still holds a promise of benefit for children with Sanfilippo.

    He closes this podcast episode sharing some of the amazing fundraising that have happened lately and are coming up and how the Foundation joined the rare disease community’s recent collective legislative advocacy to influence positive change for research on rare diseases.

    EPISODE 8: “A Close Look At Sanfilippo” is a regular 10-minute podcast covering five hot topics regarding Sanfilippo Syndrome, a rapidly degenerative disease in children currently with no FDA-approved treatment.

    In this episode Glenn O’Neill, president and co-founder of Cure Sanfilippo Foundation, praises the Sanfilippo Syndrome community as families and organizations globally are raising awareness in celebration of World Sanfilippo Awareness Day, Nov. 16. He encourages that being a part of World Sanfilippo Awareness Day can be as simple as social media posts or personally telling others about these children and their families.

    Glenn then announces the launch of a new viral video, Help Simon, on Nov. 16 to raise $1 million for promising research and how watching and sharing the video makes a huge impact.

    A new face to the podcast, Foundation Development Associate Lindsey Shealy announces that the second annual Merry & Bright Trivia Gala, Dec. 10, will be a complimentary event for donors, partners families, and industry partners as thanks for all they do. Registration is open for this complimentary, light-hearted night of interactive and jolly trivia. Link to register is below.

    Next Glenn explores the power of parents participating in the AllStripes platform. He describes how the platform easily aggregates a child’s medical records into a single source for parents to reference and share with care providers. Additionally, AllStripes provides a huge boost to the future of Sanfilippo research. All of the de-identified data helps create a more extensive pool of natural history data that includes a wide variety of potential research endpoints that could expedite the process for clinical trials to begin. Parents of Sanfilippo Angels, children who have passed away, are especially valuable as AllStripes participants because their de-identified medical records provide a picture of the entire life’s journey with
    Sanfilippo.

    With Giving Tuesday being a part of the holiday season, Glenn shares that the Foundation and its partner families will be participating in this outpouring of generous support globally. He also explains how Giving Tuesday is among a variety of opportunities the Foundation coordinates so partner families have a variety of opportunities throughout the year from which to choose what ways they would like to support the mission.

    Episode 7.  “A Close Look At Sanfilippo” is a regular 10-minute podcast covering five hot topics regarding Sanfilippo Syndrome, a rapidly degenerative disease in children currently with no FDA-approved treatment.

    In this episode Glenn O’Neill, President and Co-Founder of Cure Sanfilippo Foundation, shares footage from his presentation during an EveryLife Foundation scientific workshop in which he made the case for why Sanfilippo Syndrome is an ideal candidate for the FDA’s accelerated approval program and how there are likely multiple treatments that could start helping children with Sanfilippo in some way right now. “It’s urgent to us! The children [with Sanfilippo] are getting worse every second as the storage of heparan sulfate accumulates in every cell. Sanfilippo is not a disease to be conservative regarding the drug development path … Accelerated approval could give these children a chance at better days, more time, and maybe more comfort. Let’s start with that, and we can improve on it from there. As one of our parents stated, ‘Doing nothing is the greatest risk in Sanfilippo.’”

    Katie Walton, VP of Marketing for the Foundation, introduces a new resource created for parents of children newly diagnosed with Sanfilippo. The brief guide walks through initial questions most families have about Sanfilippo and what to do next, to help them proactively care for their child and give them the best quality of life.

    Next Glenn dives into how donors’ generous support of the Foundation has made more than 30 research projects possible in just eight years, some of which have moved from promising lab research into clinical trials. Plus, how the Foundation’s diverse approach to funding research -- exploring multiple treatment and therapeutic options, supporting programs for early detection of Sanfilippo (physician education, newborn screening), and creating of global clinical management guidelines for Sanfilippo -- all contribute to improving the lives of children with Sanfilippo.

    For the final two topics in this episode, Glenn shares how people can participate in the third annual World Sanfilippo Awareness Day on Nov. 16 and the end-of-year goals for the Foundation and how people’s generous hearts make reaching $2 million in fundraising each year a possibility. “We’re so thankful. … In this podcast we showed you what impact the dollars for research lead to. The impact and the difference donors are making is clear.”
