XSCID is an inherited disorder that occurs almost exclusively in males. Affecting about one in every 200,000 newborns, #XSCID is caused by a mutation in the IL2RG gene that encodes a protein critical for developing the body’s immune cells.
Bone marrow transplantation has been the most effective treatment for XSCID. But, more than 80 percent of patients with XSCID lack fully matched donors.
To find a safer and more effective way to cure kids with XSCID, St. Jude scientists worked for more than a decade to perfect a novel gene therapy called a lentiviral vector.

St. Jude recently launched #StJudeGlobal, an initiative to expand our global reach and improve survival rates of children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases around the world.
Global Pediatric Medicine chair, Carlos Rodriguez-Galindo, M.D., talks about St. Jude Global’s founding principle: “Since Day One when this hospital was founded, the goal was to provide hope to every single child with cancer regardless of their race, their ethnicity, their color, their ability to pay or where they lived. So, that founding principle remains with us. And for us, any child suffering today of cancer is our responsibility.”
St. Jude Global focuses on three core areas—education, capacity building and research.

St. Jude employees pedaled their way to campus last month for Bike to Work Day Memphis. Biking helps the employees stay active while being environmentally friendly.
Our faculty and staff participated in this event hosted by Bike Walk Memphis, riding on bike-friendly routes that stretch more than 400 miles in the Memphis area. Memphis was recently named a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Community by @bikeleague.

There are circadian cells in every organ in the body. If you’re not sleeping when your body thinks you should be, your life will be negatively affected.
Pediatric #psychologist Valerie Crabtree, Ph.D., attended #Sleep2018—the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and the Sleep Research Society joint annual meeting—on developments in clinical sleep medicine.
Don’t miss her #StJudeBlog on circadian rhythm. It stems from the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2017 award to Jeffrey Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael Young. The trio were honored for their discoveries of molecular mechanisms controlling circadian rhythm, which is the internal 24-hour clock in the brain.
