Biotechnology company, Amicus Therapeutics is the shinning light of hope to people living with rare or orphan diseases. Based in New Jersey, history is being made as they complete groundbreaking research and provide invaluable resources for patients all over the world.
Their unusual moral approach to the medical field offers patients with the tools to not only have life, but to have a better life. Amicus Therapeutics offers and providers a clear conscience to people suffering from these devastating diseases that are often overlooked by most medical professionals, left without solutions, and even treated as though nothing is wrong.
Unlike many medical companies, Amicus Therapeutics employs a moral anti-bribery code of ethics making the families and the patients with rare disease the real beneficiaries of their work.
Patients with rare diseases are real people, sadly, this is something the medical world has long forgotten, Amicus Therapeutics brings that reality back to the medical field. Scientists haven’t forgotten their real purpose here and still hold their passion of helping people. That passion is their driving force for the scientific research being done. They focus on specifically targeting the mutated proteins that are the cause of the illnesses, rather then only focusing on making the patients comfortable and letting the gene mutation continue to cause harm. Amicus Therapeutics is developing solutions including enzyme replacement therapies that are vital to the lives of many. Making them comfortable isn’t enough, they want the cure as well. At Amicus Therapeutics the Patient Advisory Board (PAB) pays close attention to the patients and how the treatments effect them. The PAB act as purposeful advocates for the patients, they find solutions and implement their ideas to make sure therapies are in the patients best interest.
Offering healing, remains the motive for Amicus Therapeutics. They offer grants and charitable donations that help patients with rare diseases. Their drive toward invention and healing is one reason for the financial help they contribute. They offer healthcare charitable grants, medical education grants, and other charitable grants.
