Newsletter #25

7th Board of the Network: Thanks for coming!

We would like to thank all of you for your attendance and participation in this last Board of the Network in Padova on November 11th and 12th. In the next issue of this Newsletter we will go through all the news and communications regarding the event.

The TransplantChild Research Working Group has designed a leaflet with the objective of informing patients about the benefits of research in Paediatrc Transplantation. The document answers to the following questions:
  • Why should we investigate in transplantation?
  • Why research with adults cannot necessarily be extrapolated to children?
  • How can research improve PT?
  • How is TransplantChild working to support PT research?
  • TransplantChild ongoing research projects.
  • Next Steps in research on PT.

300 million Rare Diseases patients


A new scientific article by Orphanet, EURORDIS and Orphanet Ireland studied the current prevalence of Rare Diseases worldwide. According to this research, Rare Diseases affect, at any point, between 3.5% and 5.9% of the world population. This results in an estimation of 300 million patients. The analysis shows that there are over 6,000 clinically defined rare diseases. From them, 72% are genetic and 70% start during childhood.
