4H leukodystrophy research announcment

Promising recent research announcment from the Yaya Foundation for 4H Leukodystrophy.

“Dr. Genevieve Bernard and her team at the MyeliNeuroGene Laboratory in the Research Institute of the Centre universitaire de santé McGill | McGill University Health Centre has successfully created the first representative animal model of 4H Leukodystrophy.

This is a crucial step in the development of treatments, recently described in an article published in the prestigious journal, Brain, and will serve as a foundation as Dr. Bernard’s lab continues to explore gene therapy as a potential option for 4H Leukodystrophy.

Yaya Foundation was an early and significant funder of this work and is excited about these key findings and what they mean for next steps in 4H Leukodystrophy research.

The official press release regarding this important milestone in 4H Leukodystrophy research is available online.

The publication of findings in the Brain journal is also available online.”
