SAVE CHILD FROM FENCONI ANEMIA DESEASE. ABOUT DESEASE:Fanconi anemia (FA) is a genetic disease with an incidence of 1 per 350,000 birthsTreatment with androgens and hematopoietic (blood cell) growth factors can help bone marrow failure temporarily, but the long-term treatment is bone marrow transplant if a donor is available. Because of the genetic defect in DNA repair, cells from people with FA are sensitive to drugs that treat cancer by DNA crosslinking, such as mitomycin C. The disease is named after the Swiss pediatrician who originally described this disorder, Guido Fanconi. It should not be confused with Fanconi syndrome, a kidney disorder also named after Fanconi.
