Clementia Clinical Drug Trial Recruiting in Canada for MOVE Project
Currently there is no medicine for FOP, only medicine to help with inflammation and pain that accompany flare-ups of muscle death and bone building.
There is a new horizon of HOPE for the kids/individuals with FOP and their families. More Centres of Excellence are beginning to research answers for FOP.
CFOPN raises funds to support research as listed below:
UPenn Centre for FOP Research
The Center for Research in FOP & Related Disorders is the world’s first and only comprehensive research program in FOP. The activities of The Center are broad and comprehensive and focused on seven spheres of activity. For more information...
