Desiree Lyon spent a large portion of her life in the hospital. Her disease was rare, caused searing pain and nearly took her life. Porphyria is unpredictable with a horrific abdominal pain. She had in excess of twenty attacks, was completely paralyzed twice and was in intensive care thirty times. Very few individual were aware of Porphyria when her symptoms began. The disease is eight inherited disorders caused by the natural chemicals in the body building up. This causes fragile skin, abnormal chemical levels, paralysis, coma, seizures and potential damage to the organs. She was undiagnosed for ten years. Nothing changed until Jeff Aronin became a part of her life.
Desiree Lyon was finally diagnosed at age 28. Her relief came from a new drug created for her rare condition. This was when Jeff Aronin appeared with the expertise and drive she needed desperately. She had already co-founded the APF or the American Porphyria Foundation in 1982. Jeff Aronin’s company was Ovation Pharmaceuticals and he partnered with her foundation. Her life was better due to an injectable drug called Panhematin until manufacturing was halted pending a plant upgrade demanded by the FDA. The manufactured decided to stop producing the drug.
Desiree Lyon became desperate as the supply of the drug decreased. She appealed to government officials and the FDA. She called CEO’s of numerous different drug companies to restore production. One drug maker was traveling in Paris, another was reached on his cell phone and yet another was on vacation with his family. There were now 8,500 members in the APF but not enough donations to begin marketing. The doctors were not interested in an orphan drug.
Jeff Aronin clearly saw what was happening. He knew Desiree Lyon worked hard, was passionate and organized. This is why the drug is available today. Jeff Aronin made the decision to sell Ovation so he could found Paragon Biosciences. He made investments into biotechnology companies committed to patents. The life changing Panhematin did go through a few different changes of hands but the danger had passed. The drug is available as an orphan therapy for rare diseases.
