We have included a few exciting developments below which we will highlight on November 12th:

1) In March, we shifted time and energy towards applying our expertise studying cytokine storm disorders and identifying drugs that can be repurposed towards identifying treatments for COVID-19. The CORONA (COvid19 Registry of Off-label & New Agents) Project is the world’s largest database of treatments being repurposed for COVID-19 which is being used by the FDA, HHS, Google Health, and others. Check out the below links for more information

2) We completed and published multiple studies in the last year that were made possible through support from generous donors like you including the following:

3) Last year was the biggest year ever for raising Castleman disease awareness, driven primarily by the awareness from the publication of Dr. David Fajgenbaum’s memoir, Chasing My Cure: A Doctor’s Race to Turn Hope Into Action, which is now a National Bestseller!
