Observational Study for Long Term Health Implications of Individuals Affected by Fanconi Anaemia

More about the Observational study for long term health implications of individuals affected by Fanconi Anaemia and its Objectives

We have funded this study because although guidelines for the management of FA are available for clinicians and patients, these mainly address FA only in childhood. The extent to which these guidelines are implemented is not known, and may vary significantly between UK centres. Added to that there is sparse evidence for the management of adolescents and adults with FA, and in particular no consensus on how to treat squamous cell carcinomas arising in FA.

The Study, which is designed to meet the emerging needs of the increasing adult populations with FA and make the best possible management available for children and adults with FA, is fully funded by Fanconi Hope and is being run by a highly experienced team of FA consultants and researchers in Manchester and Cambridge: –
