The Amicus Therapeutics and Their Migalastat Monotherapy Method

While the healthcare industry is moving forward and opening the path for new methods and treatments to a varied number of diseases, the practice of developing new ways of executing therapies is one of the most significant assets for the progression of medicine as a whole.

A famous therapeutic institute located in New Jersy, Cranbury, is contributing to the improvement of this front since their foundation in February 4, 2002. Amicus Therapeutics was created with the intention of focusing their research on rare and orphan diseases that have unique peculiarities and deserve a higher attention from some of the best physicians and researchers in the United States.

These disorders that Amicus Therapeutics focuses on are called “Lysosomal Storage Disorders” and are very detrimental to some individuals who suffer from a number of these and have very limited assistance from researches. Around the world, there are diseases that have a higher percentage of institutions taking care of discovering new methods of treatment and therapies for more famous diseases like Aids, cancer, and others. The Lysosomal Disorders don’t have enough backup support from physicians of skill and experience. Thus Amicus Therapeutics is aiming to change this reality for the future.

The company has their focus on the Chaperone-Advanced Replacement Therapy, a method that has the replacement of enzymes in the body of the infected, and were one of the pioneers to develop a more reliable and effective version of the therapy. Amicus Therapeutics was also a company that went public five years after their inauguration, which means that anyone can fund and support the institution and helps progress their therapy development. The clinic and their professional staff are dedicating their efforts into proceeding with the migalastat monotherapy, one of their greatest projects for the future.

The enterprise is aiming to stabilize what they call “alpha-galactosidase,” an endogenous mutant cell that is responsible for the type of disorder that the group treats and develops therapies for. Amicus Therapeutics currently has no established products in the market (Google Finance), and instead focuses on the sole purpose of supporting the investigation and building collaborations with other important corporations to try and further their reach.

Amicus Therapeutics, contrary to popular belief, is not centered only in New Jersey, where they are headquartered, but also has a subsidiary in San Diego since 2008, one year after the group went public. The researches and therapy development of the group is not alone, as they have the support and funding of many important personalities and institutions for the healthcare department, like the 2010 $500,000 fund from Michael J. Fox Foundation.

The Philanthorpy of Michigan’s Dick DeVos

I was browsing the Washington Business Journal when I happened across an interesting article about the Kennedy Center. A few years back the Kennedy Center set out to raise enough money through donations to make some major renovations. The Center passed its goal, but the donors were so generous that there was enough donated beyond the initial goal that the center decided to push on and raise enough to add some really nice features to the complex. 

Many of the donors made donations of one million and much more, and it only goes to show the love people have for the arts and their surrounding communities. The campaign which was initially set to raise $125 million raised over $139 million to cover the rising costs of the expenses. The entire project that is going to feature a footbridge, a river walk, pavilions and dining areas will bring new life to the center. 

Among those making the large donations were David Rubenstein and Dick DeVos. Rubenstein is the co-founder of the center, and he made a donation of $50,000,000 for the center’s restructure. I was curious about the donors, and looked them up on the internet. DeVos is the Michigan born son of the Amway founder. He is well known for his philanthropy as he shares the wealth he and his family have been fortunate enough to enjoy. His support at the Kennedy Center was in the amount of one million dollars.

I found his philanthropy is boundless, and goes far beyond just his support of the arts and the Kennedy Center. He and his wife Betsy created a foundation to manage their gifts and charities called the Dick and Betsy DeVos Foundation. It’s located in Grand Rapids, and the list of the groups and causes it supports is almost endless. The foundation donates heavily to education for children that range from scholarships at Princeton University to very large donations for Choices for Children. 

DeVos has established scholarships with the foundation he and his wife created. This scholarship fund not only supports American students, but also reaches out to students in developing countries. Mr. DeVos has a love of flying, and he opened the first public aviation high school in the world. It’s located at the Gerald Ford Airport and aviators from all over the country donate their time for the students. Check out the video below of Dick demonstrating a helicopter landing for students and members of his community of Grand Rapids.

Mr. DeVos other philanthropic passions include the environment, the arts and free market economics. He supports the Action Institute and the Heritage Foundation with donations and scholarship funding. He is also an avid supporter of the Dutch-American community and he even speaks internationally on occasion.

ServiceMesh is a company Pulier founded in 2008 and was Chief Executive Officer, Co-founder and President. The company was acquired by CSC, an international provider of the latest information technology services & solutions for more than $260 million.

Since resigning from CSC, Eric Pulier started a career as CEO of Stemulis in May of 2015, according his online site.

Mr. Pulier didn’t elaborate about the company and only provided its name and the date he acquired the role as CEO, a month later after his resignation at Computer Sciences Corporation. Eric has founded and co-founded over 15 companies and non-profit organizations, including Digital Evolution, Akana, Media Platform, Inc., ServiceMesh, Enterprise Cloud Leadership Council, and Ace Foundation. Last year, he donated millions of dollars to start Ace, a non-profit organization focusing on technology strategies to meet the needs of humankind. His technology background began while studying Computer Science, Visual / Environmental, and English / Literature at Harvard University. As an investor, he has provided capital to media and technology startup companies.

The accomplishments of Eric Pulier are widespread as an author, technology engineer, and humanitarian. He was an editor and writer for Harvard Crimson Weekly and wrote weekly columns. One of his most prestigious accomplishments was building and overseeing technology exhibits for an event, “Bridge to the 21st Century.” The event was held for former U.S. President, Bill Clinton and former Vice President, Al Gore in Washington, D.C. It contained exhibits that displayed the effect of new technologies in the future for the community, education, environment, government, and healthcare.

Eric has contributed financially as a donor and investor and shared his valued technology expertise to society, students, children, companies, and non-profit organizations.

Eric Pulier-The Saint of Sand Hill Road

With his enormous string of successes, Eric Pulier is a hurricane to be reckoned with on the Silicon Valley tech scene. All within the period of 20 years, he has founded or cofounded nearly 16 businesses, in addition to angel investing into a profoundly successful string of startup companies. He has even worked for three of the most cutting edge boutique venture capital firms before he made the very conscious decision to dedicate his entire life to giving back to the world through philanthropy.

Eric is definitely considered to be one of the world’s most successful Silicon Valley investors as he has the uncanny ability to find a very specific, unguarded niche and take it over, then sell the services of his company with a Steve Jobs-like charisma that is only found in the keenest investors. This technique has enabled him to succeed as a tech startup founder, earning him millions of dollars in net worth and respect amongst the community of startup companies that inhabit the world of Silicon Valley.

The time he’s dedicated to the world of venture capital earned his companies and himself hundreds of millions of dollars, causing the smaller boutique firms that he worked for to develop into mega firms seemingly overnight, which was great for him because he owned such a significant share of every venture capital firm that he worked for.

With his profound work ethic as a philanthropist, he is definitely a busy man. Famously, he is a board member for The Painted Turtle, an organization that seeks to emotionally rehabilitate children who are diagnosed as terminally ill via naturesque summer camp activities.

His ability to touch the hearts of everyone he comes in contact with is quite evident in the profound way that the masses tend to respond to his writing. As a writer for the Harvard Crimson as well as frequent guest writer at Forbes Magazine, he has established his ability to provoke thought, feeling and ideas to all who come in contact with his brilliance.

When someone is as brilliant as Eric Pulier is, it is often times difficult for them to accurately convey their feelings because their status and intellect tend to make some uncomfortable. Eric has a way of reaching out to people and making them feel very warm and at home. This is why so many startup company founders and venture capital firms treat Eric Pulier as the go to guy for investment guidance and mentoring on a fairly consistent basis. This excellent set of skills also makes him an excellent public speaker, which he does in his free time, promoting the ideas of freethinking, hard work and philanthropy.

Eric Pulier has quickly revolutionized the world of investing including enterprise software and for this he will obviously be marked down in the history books as one of Sand Hill Road’s most prolific investors.

Stock Market Health

It’s probably best to avoid reading news about today’s stock market. With stocks plummeting to all time lows since 2011, the financial experts have been searching for answers as to why such a thing could happen when many believe the economy has been at its strongest. Many point to public fear of the Chinese stock market. with so much focus on the Chinese economy, it’s no wonder fear has arisen with the economy in China stumbling. The Chinese Government is even searching for their own answers as questions are directed toward their way.

The American economy is still strong. The stock market isn’t the only indication of its health. People like Brian Bonar are the indication due to their roles as CEO’s in the companies that make up the stock market. Currently the CEO of TRUCEPT, and has been since 2010, Mr. Bonar also serves multiples roles in various other companies, his most important being TRUCEPT. His business focus has always been targeting a certain audience that best fits his company’s needs. He has grown his businesses this way and has found much success. Mr. Bronar’s based pay is $360,000. This is lower than some other CEO’s of similar companies.

If CEO’s of other companies also used this approach, there may be less volatility with profits, which could mean a stronger economy. I mentioned earlier that the stock market is not a direct indication of the economy’s health, but it is a part of it. If all companies found a specific business plan that helped grown and increase profits, there would be many more successful companies. This would, in turn, lead to more confidence in the stock market. The market is highly based on consumer opinion and confidence. It’s time to restore that.

In order to restore faith in the stock market, businesses need to take a more focused approach to increase faith in the the economy. The business model employed in certain company’s do this and will eventually restore the economy.
