The Niemann-Pick Disease Group UK

The Niemann-Pick Diseases, in common with many other inherited diseases of the metabolism, are a source of great suffering and distress to individuals unfortunate to have inherited them and to their families. The diseases strike with devastating consequences and without warning, leaving families bewildered as to why this has happened to them. To add to their grief, the onset of disease symptoms is often delayed for many years and other children, born previously or subsequently, may also have inherited the disease. A great deal of research is taking place into the cause of the diseases, but currently there are no known effective treatments.

To learn more about this genetic disease please visit.
