Blood Cancer Awareness Month

September is Blood Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM). This is a wonderful opportunity to support people fighting leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and other types of blood cancer.

Blood cancer occurs when the normal blood cell development process is interrupted by uncontrolled growth of an abnormal type of blood cell. These abnormal blood cells prevent blood from performing many of its functions, like fighting off infections or preventing serious bleeding.

As over 900,000 people worldwide are diagnosed with various types of blood cancer annually, it is crucial to share support and spread awareness of this group of diseases.

National Atrial Fibrillation Awareness Month

September presents an opportunity to become more aware of the life threatening arrhythmia. National Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) Awareness Month is organized by Heart Rhythm Society to and held every September in order to raise awareness of this common but critical condition.

Having AFib poses a greater risk of stroke. Some of the common symptoms of AFib include irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, and unusual fatigue. It is crucial to get diagnosed, if any of these symptoms show.

Many treatment options are available to those diagnosed with the condition, including medication, surgery, cardioversion and catheter ablation.

Database Locked for the Rare Disease Pediatric Study

GCT team is proud of taking part in the achievement of the major milestone for the Phase III clinical trial. The study is being successfully conducted, amidst the present difficult global environment, in pediatric patients suffering from a rare neurological disease. It is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial followed by a long-term open label treatment. In January 2020, GCT successfully completed the enrollment of patients in Russia. We have now reached the next milestone – the Database Lock.

Despite all the challenges caused by the pandemic, the GCT team was able to follow each patient closely and ensure they complete all the required assessments, keeping trial participants safe during the treatment stage. This trial required a high level of GCT expertise and involvement, which the team successfully delivered.

“The sponsor of this trial, a US Pharmaceutical company, demonstrated an incredible level of trust in GCT, for which we are extremely grateful. We hope that our professional relationship will continue to grow and develop in the future,” – Dr. Eugene Selivra, GCT CEO.
