For 30+ years, the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias (NFED) has led the charge to develop a treatment for the common type of ectodermal dysplasia, x-linked hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (XLHED). For the past few years, we have worked with espeRare to help develop a unique, pre-natal treatment.

EspeRare plans to launch a clinical trial in Europe and then the United States to confirm preliminary, promising findings from Dr. Holm Schneider’s Trial to Cure. In this pre-recorded webinar, Dr. Jaulent will explain where the current research stands.

You will learn…

  • what ER-004, the protein replacement therapy, is
  • how it impacted the symptoms of XLHED in three babies treated in utero in Dr. Scheider’s study
  • the goals of the clinical trial and what it means for the ectodermal dysplasias community
  • the logistics of the clinical trial – when and where it will launch, how to enroll, what to expect
  • and more!
