New Hopes on the Horizon

Well, The Rett World is just abuzz with all the recent advancements in research, giving us all even greater hope that a cure is within reach. Even as the NNZ-2566 trial advances, with a possible end date of June/July and now a total of 3 hospitals participating, making it easier for families to reach a research center and to accommodate the number of girls needed to finish the study, still the search goes on, from different angles, and knowledge is gained at every turn. Read and have HOPE!

Check out these links and just see the variety of ways researchers are attacking the monster known as Rett Syndrome, that steals our children in the night.
