(LOS ANGELES, October 25, 2016) — Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® announces an exclusive story about gene therapy solutions, featuring interviews with Dr. Richard Jude Samulski and Sheila Mikhail of Bamboo Therapeutics; a company developing therapies for rare and devastating central nervous system and neuromuscular diseases.

Central nervous system and neuromuscular diseases are often some of the most devastating diseases that an individual or family can ever be faced with. Often the therapies are expensive, experimental, and can be painful as well without offering guaranteed results. Bamboo Therapeutics is working to create life changing and ever evolving therapies that work to correct these diseases and help those that suffer from them live a healthier life.

The company was founded in an effort to advance the life work of Dr. Richard Jude Samulski, the Director of the Gene Therapy Center at the University of North Carolina. The company strives to meet all requirements from the lab to human trials and they are working to create and test therapies that can help to replace defective genes.

The life work of Dr. Samulski has led him to create Adeno-Associated Viruses that target certain tissues and de-target others therefore improving their safety in use to help treat these diseases. Dr. Samulski and the skilled and talented doctors and researchers that he works with are hoping to further rAAV technology and truly start to create cures for these devastating neuromuscular and gene related diseases.

“Gene Therapy has the potential to revolutionize the treatment of genetic defects, giving patients hope for a healthier future. We are excited about collaborating with Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®. We applaud Kathy Ireland’s efforts to increase awareness for rare diseases and to put these new therapies in the spotlight,” Ms Mikhail said.

“Dr. Samulski and the incredibly skilled staff at Bamboo Therapeutics are taking a therapy that we already knew about that was somewhat risky, and they are making it safer and more effective so that those individuals that are affected by these diseases have hope.” J.L. Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®

Bamboo Therapeutics is working to provide answers and solutions to the diseases that have evaded being cured for so long. Through refining an already existing technology, Bamboo Therapeutics is truly cutting edge.
