What is Serum?
Axenia BioLogix takes the impact of serum personally
The Judd Family’s involvement with the global manufacturing, traceability, and distribution of sera is in no way superficial or wholly commercial. It has deeply impacted their personal lives. Jill, Axenia’s Quality Director, co-owner and Stephen’s wife of more than 30 years, was stricken with Multiple Sclerosis in her mid-forties. In 2017, Jill traveled to Moscow, Russia for an autologous hematopoetic stem cell transplant (AHSCT) in order to reset her immune system; she remains MS-free to date. Together, the couple has become living, breathing advocates for the cure of autoimmune-related maladies in place of costly and variably effective treatments.
“Dr. Denis Fedorenko’s program at the AA Maximov hospital is the best center for HSCT in the world,” says Stephen. “HSCT does not ensure that Jill will never suffer an autoimmune disease again, but it did renew her immune system and add years of active life for someone who faced a very bleak and heavily medicated decline. Jill is my hero and my best friend.”
