Leading the Fight to treatand cure Tay-Sachs, Canavan and related diseases
Dr. Landing gave the first definitive description of Gangliosidosis-1 (GM-1) in 1964 which had variously been called ‘Hurler variant,’ ‘pseudo-Hurler disease,’ and ‘Tay-Sachs with visceral involvement.’
Dr. Caffey likely gave the earliest description of GM-1 in 1951 discussing prenatal onset of Hunter-Hurler disease.
