During a satellite symposium sponsored by PTC Therapeutics, professors presented about AADC deficiency differential diagnosis and management; the clinician and caregiver experience.
The chair of the symposium was Prof. Francesco Porto from Italy. He spoke about identifying AADC deficiency – an underdiagnosed and underreported neurometabolic disorder. The symposium has had a presentation from Prof. Bruria Ben Zeev from Israel. She spoke about the therapeutic landscape for AADC deficiency: key clinical data and patient outcomes.
The symposium closed with Prof. Francesco Porto introducing our family. We presented the AADC deficiency patient journey: a caregiver’s perspective. The symposium closed with an open forum where attending physicians were able to ask live questions during a Q&A session.
