IP help needed for a rare genetic disorder.  ADNP Syndrome/Helsmoortel-Van Der Aa syndrome is a devastating disorder.  The ADNP Foundation (https://www.adnpfoundation.org/), a not-for-profit foundation, is seeking legal guidance on IP related queries in both the US and Europe in relation to a potential treatment for the disorder.  Specifically, they are looking to clarify 1) if using a potential treatment that has not been patented is permissible; and 2) if no patent exists can they apply for a patent with different indications.  Please let me know if your IP folks can help, and I’ll put you in touch.
