This issue of PXE Awareness is dedicated to Dr. Kenneth Neldner, who recognizing the need for the identification of the gene which causes PXE, worked tirelessly to establish our lab at Harvard University, collected 100 human blood and tissue samples from PXE patients and supported the work of Dr. Berthold Struk who identified ABCC6. This discovery made possible the research conducted since then, including these most recent studies, reported here. We, who have PXE, owe much to this caring competent physician, teacher and scientist.
