Sanofi Launched Advanced Treatment for Pompe Disease

Benjamin LAMBERG, CCIFT's Chairman, established Team France spirit at the opening.

Sanofi hosted a launch event of advanced treatment for Pompe disease on April 22, 2023. We welcomed 95 healthcare professionals for Pompe disease care joined on-site or virtually. Patients with Pompe disease, their caregivers and the CCI French Taiwan representative were invited to the opening session to celebrate the launch.

Olivier FILICIC, Head of Rare Disease of Sanofi Taiwan, shared that Pompe disease is a rare, progressive, and life-threatening muscle disorder. He was invited to the International Pompe Day event hosted by Taiwan Pompe Association and was deeply touched and encouraged by patient story.

In the opening session, patients and caregiver shared their journey with Pompe disease. They felt depressed when getting diagnosed with Pompe disease, but still faced it with courage, treating and rehabilitating actively. They appreciated HCPs' efforts and development of the advanced treatment, providing better care to them, expecting the advanced treatment benefits more patients.
