"This people like to buy stuff and if you have a service in a product that you believe in, which is huge for me if I don't believe in selling it but if I believe that's why I'm doing what I'm doing. That's why I'm doing what I'm doing because I I. Didn't understand the industry I didn't believe in I was looking for something different. That was I'm a forward thinker. So yeah. So if I don't believe it, I'm bringing a supplement to market right now I just start a supplement company I drink these things I drink myself every day. Right? There's a whole different topic but I, the reason why I'm willing to take it on and sell it is that I believe in it one hundred percent I would I would give it to my wife and she takes it Right and so this that's the big thing is that if I'm if I have a product or service if the biggest thing is that two things time management and I don't think you can really manage time but you can plan for it. So if you if you're not selling enough or you're not your business isn't where you want it to be your proud your time is probably off and I can't go into it. Now Mike all the tips around that but that's I talked to a lot of people I've coached a lot of people most people they have an issue with their calendar. That's the first thing and they don't prospect enough and prospecting can be done a multi ways and you can't outsource it. So if you don't like prospecting, you'd better have the money to outsource it. So that's the two things like if you're most the number, one thing though majorly is people's time they just they let people run their calendar and I don't see. I HAVE CO CO coaching clients, they WanNa talk at eight am sorry. That's what I'm getting ready for the gym I gotTa be at the gym at eight thirty. So no I don't talk. Then that's just it is what it is and I I decided my time manager. If you don't if you're not if you're not doing that, then you don't think highly enough about your product because people are paying you know pay me a lot of money. Some people might think well they bend. Over backwards no they're paying a lot of money because on the authority they want you time they want you they will pick a time and it works. Why does it work because I tell them? This is all it's available. You pick one. So I used I can only say that because I, used to let people run my time I used to work a hundred hours a week I miss my son's first birthday. I walked away from an eight figure payout equity ownership in a company. Because I knew that for the next five years, they were going to own me and I said, it's not worth money to lose my family when I sandy and I was losing both gone up to two hundred, sixty pounds I was never sleeping. I got a half day for my five year anniversary, right propose to my wife again a half day I was working seven days a week. There wasn't a burning candles at the whole both ends of the second little just dropped the candle. In the fire because I was also on call in the middle of the night. So you know my thing is, is like you if you don't have a vision and I'm actually launching a group thing right now and the and the three things I'm covering it's it's very covert kingdom. So this while end with because this is my tip, the three things that I teach people as you have to learn how to fortify your face, your family, and your follow through and inside faith is.

I already wanted to go back with my dad and I had told him that I was getting ready to go back into high school and told him we're out in San, Francisco, Mongols, house, and alkyl man's house, and I said I wanNA.

There's like so many like crazy things like so God's got some big plans for her still under percent. So that was kind of like. That phase and so I grew up in such a I grew up in a Catholic household but it wasn't really Catholic. My Dad's old school. He's from Oakland. He's real hard. You know they had like that was in the day where like your you're gang was your neighborhood. The next neighborhood they would come to fight and they would just you know my dad was like that was his Israel hard guy when it comes like that and so we went to Catholic church just really appease grandparents and say, yeah, we went because my Nanna was just so adamant about like I want you to be in heaven with me when I get there and so I never learned anything because of that I just didn't know who god was the only time. I ever talked to God I was twelve years old and a kid that I babysat who was nine was murdered by a guy who took my place the one day I couldn't babysitting He stabbed the kid forty, nine times.

Mind Over Body Cure
"Well, we've heard quite a few people on this show and others claim that they have thought themselves well, even in the face of death, but what about those people who do get sick and do get worse and die. Are they being made to feel guilty for not thinking themselves well well. My guest today are on opposite sides of this mind over body debate. Doctors don't know why my first guest is alive Lynyrd, borden says He. He changed his attitude. Imagine summarize warriors fighting the cancer in his body. A month later, the cancer was gone my next. Gus was told she had eighteen months to live if she did not have chemotherapy for her breast cancer Jane, Griffiths says she refused the treatment ten years later. She is still alive. My next guest wrote one of the most popular mind over body bestsellers. Dr Bernie seagulls love. Medicine and miracles explains his experiences with. With what he calls exceptional patients who hill themselves in the face of death. My next guest is a doctor who totally disagrees with Dr Segel's philosophy Dr Shirley new says sick. People are being made to feel guilty if they don't heal themselves, and there is no proof whatsoever that any of this works Dr Newlyn is author of doctors the biography of medicine. My next guest got so tired of people telling him that his severe backache. Backache was his own doing because of a bad attitude and stress. He wrote a column in Newsweek. Magazine to complain about it. Meet Rabbi Benjamin Black and my last guest says when she was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, people wanted her to try acupuncture and Yoga and love to get well and Spain says she live as long as she can, but she is also planning her death. Welcome all of our guests to the show. Start with you. I'll start with you. Because is where we got the idea to do the show from that column that you wrote in Newsweek magazine. What happened? I suffered from a herniated disk and I was just looking for some sympathy. And, then I suddenly realized that there was a psychological change in our society. and. Everybody kept saying to me. Why are you doing this to yourself? You must be the victim of self induced stress. And what really got me upset was that I recall the friend of mine who had died of cancer. who was able to deal with the reality of sickness? But couldn't cope with the fact that throughout the last days people made him feel as if he was the guilty one because he didn't obviously want to get well strongly enough because he wasn't trying hard enough, and he would cry to me. Does this mean I'm failure? What I'm saying is that there's an extreme position today I grant of course that there's a great deal to mind body relationship I grant as well that there is such a thing as love, medicine and miracles. What I think is wrong is I believe is a rabbi that we pray for miracles, but we don't expect miracles and when they don't happen, say that anybody who isn't well must be guilty himself. Don't blame the victim. Victim. Do you think Dr Newland this is making? People feel guilty as they die well. There's no question about that. That's really not my problem with Bernie's propositions. My problem with Bernie's propositions has to do with the aura science that he puts around them, in spite of the fact that what he's actually done is to take an enormous leap of faith, which of course is the secret of it all an enormous leap of faith from certain experiments, which show something that we all agree on that. There is a psychological factor that involves the immune system I don't think any sensitive physician physician with any experience could possibly disagree with the concept that patient state of mind is very important in their illness. But along comes Bernie, and says poof. The mind controls the immune system direct quote, the only quote I memorized from the book burning so that I could use it today. There's no evidence of that, and as long as people continue to believe with their minds, they can control their immune system there believing something that they simply can't do. It's like getting high LSD and trying to jump off a roof and fly, but you yourself just said that it's an enormous leap of faith and suppose it does suppose it does control the immune system, but there is no proof that it does. It's not a question of there being no proof that it does or does not. It's a question of our already being so close to understanding the various factors that do control the immune system that we know that the mind, the conscious mind is only one small factor. What actually happens is that whether we develop immunity to something whether we can control the disease process has to do with three systems in our body.

"In the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Lou GEHRIG was the first Baseman for the New York Yankees and a member of what many fans called murderers row because of their ability to crush the ball. He and his teammates were known for their offensive prowess at the plate and for winning numerous world series titles. Gary was a fan favorite but during the team's spring training and Florida in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. He could tell something was wrong. Power that he'd been so famous for old but disappeared. He was often tired but had no idea why he desperately wanted to play every game and maintain his legendary starting streak but he also didn't want to embarrass himself by getting easily winded or making a mistake on the field even with the disappointing spring training showing he was given a starting spot once the regular season began after all. Gehrig was a in his manager. Hope that he would turn it around in March. Old reliable number four took his place at first base. Gehrig hope that he was passed whatever he'd experienced in the spring instead he got worse all through the month. His dominance at the plate was gone for good and people were noticing the notoriously harsh New York City press question GEHRIG's abilities. They noted that his hand eye coordination was still on point but garrick was struggling with power. He was hitting the ball but it wasn't going anywhere. His teammates noticed how he was struggling to. He was making rare errors at first and was incredibly slow on routine defensive plays on April Thirtieth Nineteen thirty nine. Gehrig went over for four. The played against the Washington senators. A hitless game had been unthinkable the season before but it was becoming his new normal. He couldn't stand to let the fancy him fade away. He knew he had to make a life. Changing decision on May Second. Dariga arrived at the stadium in suited up for the game. He laced up his cleats. And BUTTONED HIS JERSEY. He left the locker room and headed up the steps to the dugout there. He approached the Yankees Manager. Joe McCarthy and said that he was benching himself his starting streak was over at two thousand one hundred and thirty games but benching himself wasn't enough his wife. Eleanor noticed that something was very wrong with her husband at home and grew worried. Gehrig told her that he could feel weakness in his arms and every so often he had a tremor as he worsened she called the world renowned. Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. She told them of her husband's ailment and a few of his symptoms. The physicians agreed to run a few tests. Gehrig was a huge star and they were happy to help him out on June thirteenth. The GEHRIG's flew to Minnesota. He and his wife were hopeful that they'd finally get a handle on. Whatever was going on at the Mayo Clinic. Garrick met with Dr Paul. O'leary he recounted the onset of his illness and his current symptoms. Sadly A- Larry and other physicians at the clinic knew exactly what he was describing. And it didn't sound good everything lined up with. What Sharko had documented over seventy years before the problem was there were many other neurological diseases that fit gehrig's description to and there was no test for LS that meant. The doctors had to rule out other conditions. I guarantee spent nearly a week in Minnesota undergoing medical tests his physicians determined. It wasn't Parkinson's disease or Huntington's disease crossing off more possibilities every day. The list of what it could be was narrowing down to the worst possible outcome. It only took a week to get through all of the tests on June nineteenth nineteen thirty nine GHERIG's thirty sixth birthday. The doctors inform the famous ballplayer of his diagnosis garrick. Sad is he learned the grim news he had. Ls while this disease was rare. It affected over thirty thousand Americans a year and there was no cure. Garrick would just have to let it run. Its Course Dr O'Leary whom Garrick would go on to form a relationship with said that in many cases patients only made it three years before they died from the illness garrick was at a loss for words. He always been a hard worker and he was used to his efforts paying off. He didn't like that there was nothing he could do. Now then O'Leary gave him even more bad news. He had to stop playing baseball altogether. While the activity wouldn't aggravate the condition GEHRIG was putting himself at risk. Every time he set foot on the field his reaction times would only get slower and a one hundred mile per hour line. Drive at first base could do serious damage. Garrod left the Mayo Clinic in quiet despair but he trusted O'Leary's prognosis and knew there was no point fighting it. All he could do was make the best of his final years and say goodbye to the sport he loved on June twenty-first the Yankees announced gehrig's diagnosis and retirement to the public fans and sports lovers. All over. The country were shocked and saddened. Garrick was a hero. Things like this weren't supposed to happen to men with nicknames like Ironhorse to soften the blow the team announced that they beholding and appreciation day for Lou Gehrig on July fourth. Nineteen thirty nine fans filled Yankee stadium to give Gehrig a proper sendoff. Some of his old teammates like Babe. Ruth were in attendance before the game started. Gehrig walked to a microphone in the middle of the field to give a farewell speech. He said fans for the last two weeks. You've been reading about a bad break got yet today. I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth. There was hardly a dry eye in the house as Gehrig left the field for the last time he was optimistic even though his prognosis was in bright he was going to make the best of the time he had but he didn't have long at all. It was only two years later on June second. Nineteen forty one. That Lou Garrick died in his home in New York. It was a sad day for sports. Fans all over the country but the famous ballplayers fate wouldn't be in vain. Gehrig's death brought a pronounced awareness to a LS. He inspired countless donors and activists more money than ever before was funneled into charities and research across the Globe. Now better funded and supported. Physicians threw themselves into their studies. The race was on every day. More people were diagnosed with LS. The scientists had to find a cure and fast Lou.

"To breathe her muscles in her chest barely had any strength to rise up and allow more Aaron. Each breath came in shallow and raspy. Her time was drawing to a close and she knew it slowly over a couple of days. She succumbed to her illness and passed away. Her death was heartbreaking but charcoal was used to these sorts of tragedies almost all of his patients died but he did his best to bring meaning out of their loss that meant learning everything he could even after death marines body was brought into an operating theatre where Chicago ended. Assistant performed an autopsy. They made an incision along her sternum and cracked open her chest cavity to get a look at our vital. Marie was thin from malnutrition but her heart and other vital organs appeared to be in fine shape with all of these preliminary observations made. Sharko moved onto what really interested him. Her spinal column in eighteen sixty five. There was a huge debate about how the nervous system worked. No one doubted that. The spinal cord was important to movement. But they still weren't exactly sure how everything worked together. Sharko meant to change that. Maurice Body was repositioned so he could get a better look at her spine. Her bone structure looked fine but he wanted to get a look at what was inside her spinal cord. He carefully cut into the spinal column which is composed of thirty three vertebrae. The Vertebrae are protective coating for the spinal cord. A bundle of nervous tissue that runs the entire length of the backbone. Sharko cautiously saw through bone. Each pass had to be shallow and sure if he cut too deep. He risked destroying valuable sections of the spinal cord after what felt like ours. Sharko managed to cut away the spinal column. He finally had the chance to examine the exposed. Neural tissue and there. He was astonished to Find Grace. Streaking lesions lesions are any kind of cut break or abnormal tissue. And they're not always a sign of illness for example. The Mayo Clinic notes. That scars and birthmarks are both kinds of lesions except healthy. People usually don't have any markings or visible damage to their spinal. Cords Sharko was certain that these lesions had caused Marie symptoms. This discovery was revolutionary. He sketched the abnormalities and described them at length in his records. He noted that they were clustered on the lateral column in simple terms. If you were to look at the spinal column from above you'd see it's shaped like a thick ex. There are two branches in front called the Anterior Horn into in the back. The Posterior Horn on either side of the ax is the lateral calm. Murray's lesions were mostly on the lateral column of the spine. This was difficult to explain Sharko. Couldn't imagine what sort of disease would damage the front of the spine while leaving the middle and back alone. He was an uncharted territory. The field of neurology was still in its infancy and there weren't any firm theories about what lesions on the spinal cord could mean. Sharko assumed the lesions had caused Merisi illness but he knew that one individual symptoms didn't make for a solid theory. He needed to repeat the findings and that meant dissecting another person who died of the same condition for the next four years. Sharko kept seeing patients studying and documenting countless conditions. But all the while he kept an eye open for someone with symptoms that matched. Meri's however the illness was apparently very rare because he struggled to find patients who fit the profile not until eighteen sixty nine. When Sharko had another breakthrough unlike Marie who gradually lost her mobility this patient had presented with paralysis as a child but when Sharko performed his usual he noticed that this person had the same kind of lesions on their spinal cord. The one difference they were on a different part of the spine the anterior horn or the front part of the eggs. Once again Sharko didn't know where the lesions had come from or why they clustered around one spot but every new piece of evidence helped him get closer to an answer from these. Two examinations Sharko developed a hypothesis. He theorized that the nervous system had two basic functions. I the brain sends signals to the spinal cord second. The information traveled from the spinal cord to the rest of the body. At least that was how things worked in a healthy person but if those signals got interrupted say by lesions on the spinal cord then a person wouldn't be able to move correctly the location of the lesions determine the specific nature of the patient's impaired mobility in eighteen seventy four. He published his studies and dubbed the New Disease Amaya Trophic lateral sclerosis or a LS. He was the first doctor to show a detailed blink between these symptoms and underlying physical condition rather than purely a psychological one. Despite his revolutionary findings Sharko was still missing a crucial piece of the puzzle. He didn't know what had caused lesions so the next step was to look at which traits his patients shared to see if he could find common cause both of his patients had been women but Sharko didn't think gender played a role in their illness after all he was working at the women's wing of the hospital so it was possible there were male patients. He just wasn't seeing after further research he also ruled out race as a potential factor. But he still didn't know what did cause L. ASS and without knowing the origin he couldn't come up with a cure instead he had to rely on and error. Sharko was a big proponent of using hypnosis to treat his neurological patients and he was having limited success but only in those that had what we know as psychological conditions sadly since patients with LS lesions on their spinal cord. Hypnotherapy did nothing for their symptoms although Sharko didn't know how to treat them. His discovery of the spinal lesions had been huge at the end of his life in eighteen ninety three. His findings were widely accepted all over the world. Since he'd been so diligent with his notes. Physicians knew the symptoms to look for to diagnose patients with AOL S. Most patients were like Marie. They'd start out feeling fine but then slowly grow weak over time. They lose control over their muscles and deteriorate until they stop breathing other patients lost control over their voluntary motor functions. While they are weaker they'd find themselves shaking or spasm ing some would start laughing or crying unable to stop doctors could diagnose from these symptoms but they still didn't know exactly what the lesions were doing nor could they figure out the significance of their location on the spinal column. Why did they appear in different places and triggers such different symptoms while they looked for solutions? Their patients were dying. Doctors remained powerless to stop the condition on top of that the general public was mostly unaware of the illness. So there was little pressure for more research but that was all about to change in the spring of Nineteen thirty nine. One of the greatest baseball players of all time was diagnosed with a LS and he changed the dialogue around the disease forever. Coming up all star first baseman Lou GEHRIG becomes the first face of LS now back to the story in eighteen. Seventy four forty eight year old. John Martin Sharko. A world renowned doctor published the first ever study on a Maya traffic lateral sclerosis or ls. The condition caused by lesions on the patient's spinal column leads to slow muscular deterioration then ultimately death while Dr Shark who discovered the illness. He was unable to figure out what caused the lesions or to cure them but he laid a groundwork that countless neurologists would follow over fifty years of study. They were frustratingly few breakthroughs and by the early twentieth century. There was still no treatment or cure while the disease was well known within the medical community the vast majority of people had never heard of it. This relative obscurity made it nearly impossible to get proper funding for further research. But that was about to change thanks to a celebrities diagnosis.

Recessions come in different forms as Jonathan will explain but the most important part is being prepared being ready so you can actually grow intercession.

But I'll be back with my takeaways and to wrap up today's episode so for now taken away. Jonathan Buckle up. My name is Jonathan Jonathan slain in today. I'll be teaching you how to look forward to the next recession. It's time to rock my story. Is that right before the great recession in in two thousand eight I partnered with my brother in law to start opening up gyms fitness businesses. You know like personal training studios. We open new locations locations and we grew very fast. Our studios achieved new franchise records every year. We have the most personal training sessions ever in the history of the franchise is we had the most locations ever in the history of the franchise. We couldn't miss. We grew and grew and grew that is until we ran into into the great recession. Looking back I'm GONNA let I'm not this audience in on a little secret. Nobody wants to pay for personal training training in a recession and worse I didn't have a plan for what to do when the recession hit so I spent the first couple months of the recession curled up in the fetal position in the corner of my office and the other hand Paul My business partner and Co author who I wrote rock the recession with. He had a plan for the recession and he was looking forward to it. He bought a company and he did very specific things to grow at spectacularly using the downturn is fuel that led to his American Dream Exit poll had picked the HVAC business because he knew that he could leverage HVAC service in a recession. In contrast contrast I was in the personal training business because my brother-in-law happened to be a fitness fanatic and then ended up borrowing a quarter of a million dollars for my mother-in-law our law in order to help us survive the recession and the worst part is I'd ending abroad of the money. All at once I borrowed at twenty thousand dollars at a time. So Oh you do the math. That's twelve phone calls groveling for money. Now I've paid my mother-in-law back since and now on a mission to make sure that nobody has to borrow money from their mother in law in order to survive the next down term. You know right now. The economy's booming unemployment's at record lows consumer confidence. Confidence is at record highs in. Almost nobody has a plan for the next recession. And I want you to be honest with yourself. Are you prepared for the next recession and when I say recession. I don't just mean economic recessions if you lose your job or your biggest customer your in a recession if your five best last employees leave and form a competitor your in a recession if your partner embezzles from you you. My friend are in a recession. But don't worry no matter why you're in a downturn it's possible for you to rock the recession and that's what we're talking about today so. Let me get specific. Let me tell you exactly how how to get ready for a recession. If you have a pen pick it up now and get ready to write this down. Step one are you ready the first first step in building. Your recession plan is to do a credit check on your mother-in-law all right I'll series says the first step in building recession session plan is to assess where you and your company are so pollen. I developed the recession gearbox model to help business leaders and you see the four four gears. The Paul used to accomplish his American Dream Exit from his company. First Year is to assess your situation sucking dearest attuned up your business and personal personal life to prepare for a recession third gears to race which means getting your company culture healthy measuring productivity of your employees rooting out profit said Fade fourth dearest. Hit The gas accelerate. This is where you're going to start to capitalize on all the opportunities. The recession brings in. Finally there's the emergency emergency break. which is there in case all else fails? You'll have a backup plan to prevent catastrophe. Now I WANNA take a second pass through this model highlighting tactics that you'll employ in each gear so for first gear. You're going to assess you always start here. You need to know how the economy works at a basic level and you need to understand the economic cycle because it always includes a recession. It's like the seasons of the year spring summer fall winter. Sometimes when arrives late but it always arise in terms of the economic cycle. Winter is always coming in first gear. You assess where we are in the economic cycle. This is also the gear that you're in when he used the recession readiness assessment to understand. How prepared your company and you are for the next down term in the scary your benchmarking your preparedness hardness from there? It's all about evaluating what you learn understanding how much opportunity you have to use the next recession as leverage for massive growth and gathering gathering the documents. You need the shift into second gear. If you want to follow up on first year you can go to recession dot com slash ready. That's our website and you can take the free recession readiness assessment. There takes about five to ten minutes once you're done with first year assessing now you're gonNA tune this is the gear where you perform stress tests to figure out where your personal and business finances are strong where they're weak. You tighten up your business and personal smell affairs in an unemotional way. And then you'll emerge confident for the next year you'll have conversations with your banker to figure out your line of credit. You want to increase your line of credit now before were in a recession before you need it because banks liked to loan money when times are good They don't like to loan money when times are bad. Perhaps my favourite tip of the entire lesson. We're doing today. Is that now to day. Day is the perfect time to ask your banker to reduce lower or cap. Your personal guarantees if you have them on corporate or personal data at Your Bank. They they aren't going to do this. One Time Sir are bad when we're already in a recession. They're going to let you reduce cap. Your Personal Lou Gehrig's disease now when times are good and sometimes you may have to switch banks to accomplish the skull but I think the effort of finding a new Bank of switching banks is certainly worthwhile and it doesn't cost you anything for you to simply ask your bank or for you to shop. Your Bank With with other institutions banks are so hungry for new business right now that it's entirely possible for you to reduce or CAP. Your personal guarantees but times are so. Oh good that most people just don't think to ask so. Please take me up on this huge opportunity. If you have a loan with personal guarantees okay. Once it's worth through second gear now we're GONNA shift in third year race. This is the gear where you're going to be Improving your business improving your company's culture measuring during employee performance measuring Labor
Speed vs. Safety: Rapid Approvals from the FDA
"Why is the FDA's rigorous testing so necessary. Well I I think you're aware that a lot of drugs fail From safety concerns we all know about getting sleepy with antihistamines. Or you know that's the actual aside side effect that comes from the action of the drug on the brain. That's at the senior centers that we would like to counteract allergy. So that's what we call pharmacologic based aced toxicity. It's an effect actually on the target. But it's in a way that we don't want it to act GOTCHA. So as we're working on very new drugs we often don't understand like where there's receptors are in God or the brain or the immune system. There's a lot of things we don't understand about the basic mechanisms of action of disease and there's lot of things that we don't understand sometimes about where the receptors are in the buddy. I mean it seems great. Yeah but that's why. I'm kind of glad if my original training and classic Comic Anthology Because you have to ask questions okay. where else is the receptor? Who else could hit end so? FDA trained to think about those nightmare scenarios of what it could do that. You don't want it to do right and ask those hard questions to make sure that we have the checks and balances right a lot of the early drugs That were used in AIDS. Patients Cause Peripheral neuropathy and that wasn't shown very well in the animal models models but it caused intense pain in the patients at the same doses that was needed for the virus. It wasn't until later that we got the protease inhibitors that really counteracted the road. And that's the basis of the lifesaving therapies that we have today I was really fortunate to be. FDA during that time when the protease inhibitor came through so switching gears a little bit what is personalized medicine. When it comes to patients like for example adjacent armstead and meal Amac? I understand that Jaycee is a twenty five year old with Lou GEHRIG's disease while meal is a young girl with batons disease who have both recently benefited from personalized medicine. He I think we have come to the place in drug development where we understand a lot more about genetics of disease so so yes switching away from viruses and into genetic Madison we have a lot of inborn errors when we learned that there is an inborn Gene that was missing in a patient has always been there born like that and as soon as we can diagnose them and with that replacement gene product or the enzyme of interest interest. We can save their lives so. LS has also been learned to be a whole series of different mutations responsible for LS Um and so you have to look at those different subsets according to their genetic diagnosis. But we also know that Batten's disease is a specific mutation and there's also something like fourteen different forms of Batten's disease that are mutations in same pathway that result in the same type of phenotype of neurological article degeneration some earlier some younger and some an older kids or adults in the case of Mula. She has two mutations that are different on both of the wheels that caused the dysfunction of a particular protein. Batten's disease six seven and there's only a handful or double handful of kids worldwide. They're known to have that particular subtitled batons and Jaycees case she has a very aggressive form of al it lasts called F s mutation and it has a particularly bad course people with F.. US typically sadly succumbed LS typically approximately a year. Because it's so aggressive. It's very hard to intervene soon enough. And there has never been a medication that could actually address the fundamental gene problems in these two cases so we need to design whole new the truck when we find the particular mutation and it turns out depending on the molecular biology and that control mechanisms around them. A tation some all of them are amenable to go nuclear type therapy and both of these girls have been their particular. Genetics have been amenable to A strategy she of using nuclear tight enter equally sadly we did not know that. JC had this particularly bad ale ass us until she was twenty five. Her family had lost her twin sister at the age of seventeen and Alex add add. Actually he contracted the symptoms of L. S. at age eleven so the two girls were identical. They had the same mutation but one got symptoms at eleven on the other at twenty five. JC I guess Through some grace right. Her symptoms arose during time in which a drug was already available in unaccompanied show that happened to be appropriate for her. So I understand and that in this case she got lucky. Well in a way because the drug already existed otherwise we couldn't have intervened quickly enough. Yeah it was an act of considerable effort on the part of the patient advocacy group project. LS The head of Columbia University's LS LS center. Dr Neil Snider in the company who originated the drug and all of us that were helping around the sides trying to support like an exoskeleton including Charles forever and I was helping with the regulatory strategy and also trying to make sure that the drug that was chosen was actually appropriate to the most expedient animal model so as a result of that we were able to put together a very lean and mean I N D for JC and get her approved through the FDA. I have to say. FDA was understandably cautious but when they heard her situation detail and how she'd lost her twin sister the understood of course about a few and they made a lot of exceptions to the usual toxicology regulations. Well I know that she had been she and her family. They had been advocating pretty publicly for a while up until it was approved. I if I'd been in her mom shoes I would have done the same thing called. She lower local congressman. The Stephen King and there was actually quite a response. In Congress. There is a bill that was put forward to ask. FDA to move expediently for JC. I don't know that that had specific impact but just to say that they got some considerable public discussion. And how Camilla's case different in her case Tim you At Boston Children's Hospital recognized that her condition was suitable for an exon skipping being drug very similar to Isis Been Raza and he was able to use a similar backbone and design a drug from scratch within several months it was quite remarkable global. We've done the testing for it and then we've Were able to get started with just a acute data and then I designed a type of a program in which we would update the FDA very regularly on the progress of the toxicology studies so that we could extend her dosing and again. FDA's group group that does an enzyme replacement was wonderful. In working with us to customize that I approach how do you envision cases like these being handled in the future after all not everyone. Everyone has a congressman. That's willing to go to bat for them. Like Jaycee did not. Everybody should take one. There's definitely a sea-change coming is really exciting. And it goes back to the changes brought about by the AIDS patients who identified that they were an extreme unmet medical. Need we see the finalization of the L. S. guidance. We see a lot of guidances have come out on rare disease from the agency in the past twenty four months. And I'm very excited about this because we're really getting to the place where we custom tailor the amount of upfront non clinical research. That has to proceed to human trials customize. That the patient's situation well do you think that each was going to require its own uniquely designed non clinical research at will or will there kind of. Okay you're not gonna be able to have like a standard version that works for most Aso's typically called platform toxicology in kind of a dream. Right now when you look across all a good nuclear tides you find out remember. I mentioned early in this talk about the pharmacologically driven toxicity. Let's say there's another place in the genome that has has a similar sequence. We end up having the drug acting by its intended action bit at the wrong place which is an off what we call an on target but unwanted toxicity existed that could arise by modulating genome which is a little scary right to put something into the spine or once. You invoke gene therapy. What's done is done so you need to have really careful toxicology evaluations that look at the animal as if it were a miniature clinical trial? And you know you're basically siklie handling the animals has patients and so we get as much information as we can vary from each particular experiment and try to make sure that Ed's translation Lee accurate for predicting patient risk. We need the parents to know that right. If if you were me. Resigning are up to our child. An an in-and-out shoes

East anchor Yousef Gamal El Deen is standing by Yussef let's kick it off with the political developments I guess overnight since president air to one attacked the iphone Matt stories, been moving fast so we had the.
