Let us tell you that earlier Novartis AG’s Zolgensma drug was made for infants with spinal muscular atrophy, which was still among the most expensive drugs in the world. This drug was approved in the UK in the year 2019 and its cost was close to Rs 18 crore 20 lakh in Indian rupees. Scientists also claim about this medicine, that after taking just one dose, this medicine will cure the disease completely. However, these drugs are so expensive that it is rare for common people to even think about these drugs. This drug, which cures spinal muscular atrophy disease, was later approved by the US as well. According to the report, about 80 children get this disease every year in England and due to this disease, the spinal cord of children gets paralyzed. Behind the occurrence of this disease, there is a deficiency of a particular type of gene in the body.

At the same time, Peter Marks, director of the US Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, said that, although progress has been made in the treatment of hemophilia, the measures necessary to prevent and treat bleeding have a negative impact on patients’ bodies. It has a very bad effect and affects his ability to live his life. He added that hemigenics represents a significant advance in the treatment of people affected by the disease. Traditional hemophilia treatment attempts to recreate the missing proteins so that these proteins form blood clots when bleeding from the body, thereby stopping the bleeding. On the other hand, Hemgenix drug creates such genes inside the body, which makes blood clots during bleeding and prevents bleeding.
