The Genethon celebrates its 30th anniversary

At a time when the Covid-19 pandemic is on everyone's mind, the fight against rare diseases must not be neglected. The research initiated and supported by the AFM-Telethon is now turning into drugs, and upsetting the fate of families affected by rare diseases until then considered incurable.

Despite this particular context, the Telethon is celebrating an important anniversary this year: the 30 years of Généthon, the cutting-edge laboratory that this charitable marathon has made it possible to finance.

Inaugurated on December 8, 1990, it is at the origin of several advances in gene therapy, which consists of introducing genetic material into cells to treat a disease.

He published the first maps of the human genome in the 1990s. Last year, the first drug resulting from research carried out at Genethon obtained marketing authorization in the United States, before Japan and Europe this year. This treatment, Zolgensma (Novartis laboratory), can treat spinal muscular atrophy, a neuromuscular disease that condemned babies to early death.

Out of eleven drug-genes approved worldwide today, "four come directly from our research or our funding" and five are indirectly linked to it, according to the AFM-Telethon.

"We were told that it was impossible to cure our illnesses and many were skeptical about gene therapy", remembers Laurence Tiennot-Herment. "Against all odds, we invested heavily in a path whose results we see today with emotion, because it is children who are saved and parents who cry for joy."
