CAD Co-occurring With Antiphospholipid Syndrome - Autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) is a greatly heterogeneous disease, with the clinical picture ranging from “mild/compensated to life-threatening anemia, depending on the antibody’s thermal amplitude, isotype and ability to fix complement, as well as on bone marrow compensation,” Barcellini and Fattizzo wrote. One of the rare manifestations of AIHA is cold agglutinin disease (CAD). Click here for article.

Celebrate International Rare Disease Day – Annually February 28th or 29th
Rare Disease Day was established in 2008 to raise awareness about rare diseases which impact millions of people worldwide. It also highlights the importance of research to develop diagnostics and treatments to address unmet medical needs. It is supported by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Rare Diseases Research, the NIH Clinical Center, the NIH Institutes and Centers, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), the Food & Drug Administration’s Office of Orphan Product Development (OOPD), the National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD), and the Genetic Alliance.
