Through private donations and politics 

(As of April 6th, 2022)


We will continue to collect donations until the end of May 2022, also with the funding amount of €800,000 decided by Bavarian state politics on April 6th, 2022. – The actual amount transferred to Erlangen is €720,000. – We thank you very much for that.


The money collected through the fundraiser "We demand research" will be transferred to a foundation account at the University Hospital Erlangen. Everything that goes beyond the originally specified minimum amount also serves to implement extensions of the study, which we aim to be as comprehensive as possible (e.g.: further doses of the drug BC007 in the event of recurrence of the autoantibodies, longer course of the study, extension of the follow-up observations, supplementation of examinations and follow-up examinations).


We have already achieved a great deal and look forward to your donations, which we urgently need.


Many many thanks!


Your #fundraisingbc007MEcfs team
