Dupuytren disease is a benign medical condition. It can result in permanently bent fingers.
Dupuytren is more common in seniors, in Caucasians, and in men. It often runs in families but can skip several generations. Dupuytren contracture is treated with procedures, but procedures aren’t a cure. Contractures often return or affect other fingers. Dupuytren management hasn’t changed in 200 years: wait for bent fingers; do a procedure; repeat, repeat. Without a Dupuytren blood test, there’s no simple way to test preventive treatments. Research is needed for a Dupuytren blood test, but surgeons don’t do that type of research and medical doctors don’t treat Dupuytren. Lack of a Dupuytren blood test is the single biggest hurdle to a Dupuytren cure. That’s where Dupuytren Research Group comes in. We are the only group conducting research to develop a Dupuytren blood test. Our goal is to prevent Dupuytren contracture. Let’s work together to make this happen!
