The NFED’s decades-long effort to develop a potential treatment for x-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (XLHED) is coming closer to fruition.

Carline Durand and Agnes Jaulent, PhD from espeRare share the latest information (as of October 14, 2020) on the development of the protein ER-004 as a treatment for x-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (XLHED).

In this 31-minute webinar, they explain the history of the research that led to the development of ER-004. They talk about how the protein works to replace the protein missing in XLHED and the effect it has on the development of sweat glands, tooth buds, Meibomian glands and other body parts.

You will learn about…

  • Dr. Holm Schneider’s Trial to Cure in which he treated three babies in-utero with ER-004 and how it affected them.
  • the purpose of espeRare’s upcoming clinical study
  • how long the study will begin and last
  • who is eligible for the study
  • where the study will take place
  • how and when the treatment would be given
  • the potential challenges of the study
  • how they will assess the benefits of the treatment
  • the side effects of the treatment
  • when they will know if the study is successful
  • how XLHED families have previously contributed to this research.
