Since 1983 over 1 million people worldwide have been affected by some form of Ataxia. Still, we have not found a cure !
Finding a Cure for Ataxia is a major priority for all of the Ataxia research centers all over the world. The research networks of the National Ataxia Foundation in the USA, Ataxia UK.org and EuroAtaxia have made great strides in the research of the genetic process connected with Ataxia.
Stem cell research, vitamin research for therapeutic treatments , clinical trials, tissue donation and medication research are all areas that have grown over the years- trying to find a cure to the neurological disease known as Ataxia.
The National Ataxia Foundation has developed a FA – Ataxia App.
This will connect patients, researchers and families to information about FA Ataxia and give the community tools to deal with Ataxia in the 21st century. You can download the app on to your telephone for free . The technology behind Ataxia is moving forward!
