Wolfram syndrome may have relatives

Wolfram syndrome is called an “orphan disease” because it is so rare. However, based on the mechanisms of the disease, Wolfram syndrome may have relatives. I could identify several other rare diseases that are related to Wolfram syndrome. I call them “endoplasmic reticulum disorders.” By studying these other disorders, we may find novel treatments for Wolfram syndrome and other related disorders.

I am quite hopeful today. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Kindest regards,
