Have you been diagnosed with Fabry Disease?
Researchers at The Royal Melbourne Hospital are investigating several new treatments to specifically treat Fabry disease, as well as additional studies to document and monitor the manifestations of disease beyond basic medical care.
Below are some of the studies currently underway:
- Disease registries, in which patients allow their clinical information to be anonymously added to international Fabry registries
- Randomised clinical trials of new treatments for Fabry disease
- Small local studies aimed at better defining and managing the problems of living with Fabry disease
Anticipated date that enrolment will close: Ongoing
Who can take part
At least one of our current Fabry studies will be open to any person who has been diagnosed with Fabry disease. Inclusion criteria for treatment trials are very specific, and require individual discussion. We are also happy to discuss the condition and its diagnosis with any diagnosed patients and their families.
What is involved for you
These vary with the study – in general, registry participation does not involve tests beyond best practice clinical care, while randomised treatment trials usually involve additional testing. We are very happy to discuss individually.
