It's in your genes
On this episode, we shine the spotlight on rare diseases such as Hunter’s Syndrome and ATTR. Plus we attend the Global Genes Summit & Gala to celebrate those most affected. Dr. John Berk, Associate Professor of Medicine at Boston University and Clinical Director of its Amyloidosis Center, joins us to discuss the medical condition called Transthyretin-Mediated Amyloidosis or ATTR. Its symptoms are similar to other conditions and ATTR patients are very often misdiagnosed. We’ll discuss symptoms, family connections and treatment options, in this Behind the Mystery: Rare and Genetic segment. And meet Dylan Duncan, who’s battling the disease.
We're learning about a cutting-edge technology that identifies potential disease risk in embryos, helping IVF parents make informed decisions.
