#TaySachs disease is a rare and fatal genetic disorder that often strikes in infancy. Although appearing healthy at birth, babies with Tay-Sachs become increasingly debilitated as the disease progresses. Learn more about Tay-Sachs and how we are working towards a cure, and raising awareness.

We are extremely excited to know that our first major philanthropic investment with #UMass was a home run. Therapy is in a clinical trial treating infants with Tay Sachs disease. This is hope for a long and healthier future for any families faced with this diagnosis.  We are looking to our next exciting opportunity to advance research!

#BluGenesFdn’s commitment, with your support, ultimately advanced gene therapy research to being the first-in-human clinical trial and a world first treatment option for #TaySachs disease. This support was the catalyst in moving research from the preclinical phase to human trials. It allowed researchers to take more than a decade of scientific discovery into the clinic, where it will directly impact patient lives.

“It is unexpected. It is shocking. It is overwhelmingly devastating, and it is a whole lot of other things for which there are no words.” Blu Genes began because of a personal mission to find a cure for a rare and fatal #geneticdisorder - specifically #TaySachs. But now we know there is a much greater need; the need to advance gene therapy research for as many rare diseases as we can.  More research, more funding and more awareness is required for each unique disease.

As with many genetic disorders, there is currently no cure for #TaySachs. Right now, the focus is on providing comfort in managing a patient’s symptoms. Gene therapy or enzyme replacement therapy research may eventually lead to a cure or treatment to slow the progression of Tay-Sachs disease.

There are two primary factors that influence the likelihood that a person will inherit a genetic disorder. First is whether one copy of the mutated gene is passed down or whether two copies are passed down. Second is whether the mutation is on one of the sex chromosomes, or on one of 22 other pairs on non-sex chromosomes.

How are genetic disorders inherited? When diseases are inherited, as opposed to from a random mutation, it means they’re passed along to a child from one or both parents according to specific patterns of inheritance. These patterns are determined by the gene involved, whether only one or both parents have the gene, which chromosome it is on & other factors.

Did you know?
Previously it was thought that only 3% of all human diseases were caused by errors in a single gene (Single-gene disorder). Recently however, research indicates that there are genetic links to conditions such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Diabetes, and even types of cancer.

With mutations come conditions associated with them. There are three types of genetic disorders; Chromosomal (where chromosomes are missing), Complex (where there are mutations in more than one gene), and Single-Gene Disorders. Tay-Sachs is considered a single-gene disorder as the mutation affects one gene.

What is a mutation? Mutations are alterations in one’s DNA sequence. They result from changes in the structure of an encoded protein as a DNA sequence is being copied. Mutations can either be inherited from your biological parents, or acquired after birth. Mutations range in size, from a single DNA building block, to a large segment of a chromosome that incorporates multiple genes. They can also have different impacts, from harmful, to beneficial, or have no effect at all.
