Trend Community Voice Report

Trend Community leverages social media to better understand disease burden.  They have analyzed the wolfhirrschorn.org Facebook page to produce The Community Voice Report for the Wolf Hirschhorn Community.  The Community Voice Report follows the FDA’s patient input Guidelines for Patient-Focused Drug Development meetings and aims to quantify disease burden, disease management strategies, and possible unmet needs.

 Existing Research

One of the reasons we started Liv4TheCure is because of the LACK of research into Wolf Hirschhorn Syndrome or genetic deletions in general.  As we move forward and fund research this page will have information regarding current studies and research.  Until then we will post studies around Wolf Hirschhorn Syndrome that currently exist or other rare genetic deletions.

Where to Find a Clinical Trial?

We’ve partnered with ResearchMatch to help find cures for rare diseases!

ResearchMatch is a national registry designed to promote the completion of clinical trials by matching volunteers interested in research with researchers nationwide. Funded by the National Center for Advancing Translation Science, which is part of the NIH, ResearchMatch is disease-neutral and institution-neutral so that participants with and without health problems can be included and valued.
