Why volunteer for Alpers- Huttenlocher Syndrome, a rare disease in Children?

May 23, 2024

Stemnovate is working on a platform for research in rare diseases in children, especially mitochondrial diseases that severely impact the liver, heart and brain functions. One such disease is Alpers-Huttenlocher syndrome, which is a devastating condition that causes seizures and liver failure in children. Mitochondria, which produce energy in our cells, can malfunction, leading to severe diseases in children. The brain and liver, being highly energy-dependent organs, are particularly vulnerable. 

We need participants for our research study  to help find new treatments. If you're interested in volunteering, please click on the registration link. Your participation is crucial to our research and can be beneficial for the lives of children and families affected by AHS.
To participate in this study, please note the following eligibility criteria:


1. You must be a parent or family member of a child diagnosed with mitochondrial disease.
2. You can enrol a child diagnosed or suspected of having mitochondrial disease for the study.
3. Patients with Alper's Huttenlocher Syndrome and parents of the children are eligible for participation.
4. Healthy volunteers are also welcome to participate.


Your support is essential in the fight against mitochondrial diseases that affect children. Donating a small blood sample, skin biopsy, or urine sample can make a significant difference in the lives of children and families affected by AHS. 

This registration form is exclusively for the research study conducted by Stemnovate. We do not request any donations of money, and this form is not a marketing email. Stemnovate or partners will not send marketing promotions. You will receive all information for your consent. Please register your interest in this research study and help us develop new treatments for rare diseases in children.
