$500,000.00 for The Facial Pain Research Foundation’s Trigeminal Neuralgia Cure Research
The Facial Pain Research Foundation’s genetic research project to find a cure for Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN)

BriefingWire.com, 5/18/2014 - William and Leila Cilker of California are donating $500,000.00 of matching money for The Facial Pain Research Foundation’s genetic research project to find a cure for Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN). For every dollar raised for research by the Facial Pain Research Foundation the Cilker’s will match dollar for dollar up to $500,000.00.

The genetics project “In Search Of A Cure: Finding The Genes That Predispose to Trigeminal Neuralgia” is the fourth project initiated by the Facial Pain Research Foundation in a quest to cure trigeminal neuralgia and other neuropathic pain within ten years.

Defects in one or several genes, if found, could provide targets for designing customized drugs or perhaps treatment through gene therapy, which is gaining momentum in the U.S. and is newly approved in Europe. The Principal Investigators of the project are Prof. Marshall Devor of Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Professor Kim Burchiel of the Oregon Health & Science University and Professor Ze’ev Seltzer of the University of Toronto.

The Trustees of The Facial Pain Research Foundation are very thankful for the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. Cilker and their Family. The Trustees have named the Foundation’s Genetics Research Project “The William H. and Leila A. Cilker Genetics Research Program to Find a Cure for Trigeminal Neuralgia”.

For (TN) research donations please go to: The Facial Pain Research Foundation
