Physician Panel: Answering Your Questions About Trofinetide
May 23 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Date: Tuesday, May 23, 2023 Time: 1-2 p.m. ET INFORMATION & REGISTRATION In March our community celebrated a first for Rett: trofinetide, now known commercially in the US as DAYBUE™, became the first-ever FDA-approved treatment for Rett syndrome. This approval was the culmination of a journey that began more than a decade ago and succeeded only thanks to the perseverance and commitment of the researchers and families who participated in every stage of the clinical trials. During this 1-hour live webcast, join IRSF and a panel of physicians who treat individuals with Rett syndrome. As principal investigators for the trials, our panel has firsthand knowledge of the potential benefits and side effects of trofinetide. They'll answer your pre-submitted questions, share their anecdotal learnings, and provide information important for any parent considering DAYBUE for their child. Our Panelists:
  • Dr. Tim Benke, Professor of Pediatrics, Pharmacology, & Neurology at the University of Colorado/Children's Hospital Colorado
  • Dr. Robin Ryther, Director of the Rett Spectrum Clinic at Washington University School of Medicine
The panel will be moderated by Carmen Luna, IRSF Clinical Network Manager, and include questions submitted by our community.
