Welcome to New Horizons in the Management of ADA-SCID
Your independent educational tool for ADA-SCID
Adenosine Deaminase Severe Combined Immunodeficiency (ADA-SCID) is a rare and dangerous disease in which patients have a malfunctioning immune system that leaves the body open to infection from bacteria and viruses. It is vital that healthcare professionals (HCPs) who are presented with ADA-SCID patients understand the biology of the disease, know how to screen for it, and are aware of the current and emerging treatments.
With New Horizons in the Management of ADA-SCID, it is our goal to facilitate this understanding by providing direct access to the latest research and commentary in the form of independent editorials, published articles, a webcast and case studies.
All material on the website is freely available so do share with your colleagues. Please sign up here for email alerts to find out about newly added content. You can also contact us with questions and comments for the Editorial Board.
