Kantar Health’s Geneviève Bonnélye-Fesnien and Dan Lewi, Co-founder of The Cure & Action for Tay-Sachs (or CATS) Foundation, discuss rare disease challenges and patient registries.

Geneviève, Kantar Health’s Global Head of Real-World Evidence, Research and Consulting, and Dan spoke with Dominic Tyer from pharmaphorum, the online destination for pharmaceutical news and analysis, about the outlook for rare diseases.

Dan shared the emotional story of caring for his eldest daughter Amelie, who was diagnosed with Tay-Sachs in 2011 at 15 months of age.

This episode also looks at how the GM2 Disease Registry will help both patients and the pharma companies working on treatments for them.

The podcast is rounded out with an overview from Geneviève on the current outlook for rare diseases.
