Useful Information 
 
Nulibry (fosdenopterin Origin Biosciences) for injection is now available to reduce the risk of 
mortality in patients with molybdenum cofactor deficiency (MoCD) Type A.
 
MoCD Type A is a rare, inborn error of metabolism caused by mutations in the MOCS1 gene that results in 
toxic sulfite accumulation in the brain. The disorder typically appears shortly after birth and leads 
to intractable seizures, brain injury and death. Nulibry replaces missing cyclic pyranopterin 
monophosphate, which is needed to reduce levels of neurotoxic sulfites.

We sincerely appeal to you
Please stay home and stay safe

Amidst corona, two-year-old Guj girl gets liver transplant
Hirva is the youngest recipient of such transplant in Gujarat so far.
Her mother, who furnished a part of her organ for her daughter, was discharged on Tuesday, while the daughter will get discharged 8-10 days later, doctors said.
We replaced the entire damaged liver of Hirva with 230 grams portion (20 per cent) of left lateral portion of her mother liver. Both the mother and daughter are absolutely fine. The mother was discharged today while the operated baby will still have to be hospitalized for another 8 to 10 days. Hirva will now lead a normal and healthy life just like any other kid, said surgeon Dr Anand Khakhar.
 

Please make  our country a better and safer place for Newborns.
