Currently, there is no cure for ECHS1 Deficiency. The families of the affected children have a mission to raise 700.000 USD to fund the clinical research for ECHS1 Deficiency at UT Southwestern, Dallas, Texas, where scientists can focus on developing the ECHS1 Deficiency gene therapy.

As of March 2024, a total of 450.000 USD has been transferred by the families to a dedicated account at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
