Tics, the repetitive and uncontrollable movements or sounds associated with Tourette syndrome and related disorders, rarely develop out of the blue in adults. But pandemic-related stress could be triggering new tics that emerge suddenly in adults with no prior history of tics, says Caroline Olvera, MD, a movement disorders fellow in the Department of Neurological Sciences at Rush University Medical Center.
In infants with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) type 1, lower blood levels of phosphorylated neurofilament heavy chain (pNF-H) — a marker of nerve cell damage — before starting treatment with Spinraza (nusinersen) are significantly associated with greater motor gains over time.

A few months back, I wrote an article about Hemophilia A and how Spark Therapeutics’ administration of SPK-8011 in patients with hemophilia A resulted in an acceptable safety profile with no deaths and no FVIII inhibitor development with up to 4 years of follow-up. These data reinforce the ability of AAV gene therapy targeting hepatocytes to achieve stable and durable FVIII expression with an acceptable safety profile. A. Spark states that administration of SPK-8011 in patients with hemophilia A resulted in an acceptable safety profile with no deaths and no FVIII inhibitor development with up to 4 years of follow-up. Two of the 17 participants with over one year of data lost FVIII expression due to a presumed cellular immune response to the AAV capsid that was unresponsive to immunosuppression. Indeed, the company recently announced updated data from the ongoing Phase 1/2 clinical trial of investigational SPK-8011 in hemophilia A during the International Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ISTH) 2021 Virtual Congress. Spark retains global commercialization rights to its SPK-FVIII program includes both SPK-8011 and SPK-8016 for hemophilia A. These data demonstrated that administration of SPK-8011 in patients with hemophilia A resulted in sustained factor VIII (FVIII) expression in 16 of 18 participants with up to 4 years of follow-up, as of the May 3, 2021 data cutoff.
