Canadian Association for Glycogen Storage Disease

September, 2019.  The World's First Gene Therapy Clinical Trial For Glycogen Storage Disease has seen remarkable results, one year after its initial start.

It is led by Dr. David Weinstein of the University of Connecticut.  Dr. Weinstein has a strong working relationship with several doctors in Canada and in collaboration, treats dozens of Canadian patients at Connecticut Children's Medical Center; the world's largest GSD Program.  

The GSD gene therapy trial began on July 24, 2018.  It is about to expand to other sites including Montreal Children's Hospital, with Dr. John Mitchell as its lead investigator.
