Rare Disease Day 2017

New Content Item

This year’s Rare Disease Day is focussing on the theme of research, and we here at Orphanet Journal of Rare Diseases are inspired by its 2017 slogan; ‘With research, possibilities are limitless’. The importance of this truth cannot be overstated, as continual research is necessary in order to unlock the mysteries often presented by rare diseases. In a field where concrete solutions are not immediate, it is essential to mine the different research we already have, to make connections where none existed previously; to complement that information with new findings; and to listen to the voices of rare disease patients, who often provide the foundations of what is known about these medical enigmas.
Take a look below to see our material that fits into this year's theme.


Raremark's Sarah Venugopal (Head of Engagement and Communication) speaks to the significance of patient-led research for rare diseases:

Springer Healthcare IME

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new independent educational resource created by Springer Healthcare IME for the rare disease, Adenosine Deaminase Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (ADA-SCID).
New Horizons in the Management of ADA-SCID is an independent initiative steered by an editorial board of multidisciplinary experts: Andrew Gennery, Robbert Bredius and Bobby Gaspar.
Launched on Rare Disease Day 2017, the ADA-SCID portal is designed to educate healthcare professionals who are presented with ADA-SCID patients, in the biology of the disease, how to screen for it, and current and emerging treatments.
New Horizons in the Management of ADA-SCID aims to facilitate this understanding by providing direct access to the latest research and commentary in the form of:
·         Independent editorials
·         Published articles
·         Expert interviews
·         Webinars
·         Case studies
In addition, a new Orphanet Journal of Rare Diseases review on ADA-SCID will appear on the portal before the end of 2017.  Please visit the site today and sign up to receive an email alert when more educational content is added.
New Horizons in the Management of ADA-SCID is produced by Springer Healthcare IME and supported by an educational grant from GlaxoSmithKline.
