What other projects are the INPDA leading to improve patient outcomes?

The INPDA is leading a project in collaboration with clinicians, scientists, researchers, pharmaceutical companies and patient associations across the world. This project, the International Niemann-Pick Disease Registry (INPDR), aims to improve the care of patients with all types of Niemann-Pick Disease by:

  • Sharing information – collating anonymised patient data from across the world in a consistent format
  • Gaining knowledge and insight – establishing the natural history of Niemann-Pick diseases
  • Improving research – coordinating research efforts globally
  • Enabling rapid diagnostics – facilitating equitable access to state of the art diagnostic tests
  • Providing an inventory of patients – for recruitment to interventional studies

The project is co-funded by the EU Directorate General for Health and Consumers (DG-SANCO) and the partner organisations. It is coordinated by University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) in the UK, with 11 associate partners across 7 EU countries and 17 international collaborating partners.
