At an EU Conference in 2013 Kay Parkinson displayed a poster of the many conditions affecting Alström patients. Kay is CEO of CRDN, founder of Alström UK and CEO of Alström Europe and a passionate rare disease advocate. The poster was spotted by chance by the CEO of Prometics who noted that in this syndrome, fibrosis of unknown aetiology develops in multiple organs. As a result, after overcoming barriers, they carried out the first UK clinical trial for their PBI-4050 fibrosis treatment. The drug gained EU and US Orphan drug status this year. We launched our #CRDN2017 Patient Journey Poster callout to give others this opportunity to have maximum exposure to pharmaceutical and biotech companies, trusts and clinicians to share information, explore possibilities and ultimately foster collaborations.
