Mitochondrial Disease

NO cure has be discovered!


  • It is estimated that of the 4 million children born each year in the U.S., up to 4,000 develop mitochondrial diseases.
  • Mitochondrial diseases are severely debilitating, often fatal and characteristically complex in nature.
  • Mito disease is inherited from either parent and can also be sporadic or induced by the environment.
  • Many mito diseases are so new that they have not yet been mentioned in the medical textbooks or in to the medical literature.
