Dupuytren disease is the most common inherited condition to affect the body's connective tissues.
It causes Dupuytren contracture - a progressive, permanent bend of the fingers.
10 million Americans and many more worldwide suffer from this crippling hand condition.
Current treatments provide temporary improvement: there is currently no cure - yet.
The Dupuytren Foundation
The Dupuytren foundation is a 501(c)(3) patient advocacy public charity. We are an independent collaboration of physicians, scientists and patients working for a cure for Dupuytren disease and related conditions.
We Have One Goal: Cure Dupuytren Disease
These are our tactics:
1. Public Education to raise awareness of Dupuytren disease and the need for better treatment options.
2. Collaborative Research: physicians, scientists, patients working together, using cutting edge genetic and data mining tools to find and fix the root cause.
3. Fundraising to support the education and research we need to find a cure.Support The Dupuytren Foundation by shopping at Amazon Smile
