Global Angelman Syndrome Registry

Information

The Global Angelman Syndrome Registry is being initiated and funded by the Foundation for Angelman Syndrome Therapeutics (FAST) Australia with support from the Mater Medical Research Institute, the Mater Children’s Hospital in Brisbane and the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne. The Registry infrastructure was developed by Centre for Comparative Genomics at Murdoch University in Perth.

The Registry is open to parents or caregivers of an individual with a confirmed diagnosis of Angelman Syndrome.

The key objective of the Global Angelman Syndrome Registry is to set up a parent/ caregiver driven register to collect information about children and adults with Angelman Syndrome. This will allow for researchers conducting clinical treatment trials and other studies into Angelman Syndrome to recruit participants more easily. The registry will also serve other objectives including:

  • Improving understanding of the natural history and impact of Angelman Syndrome across the lifespan
  • Focus further research into the study of this condition
  • Inform future service planning for people with Angelman Syndrome and their families
  • Compare Angelman Syndrome populations in different regions of the world

 

The framework for the Global Angelman Syndrome Registry allows for collaboration with existing projects. The ability to integrate with existing studies will be dependant on the ethics approval obtained to collect the information and the format the information has been collected in. Please contact the Registry Curator on curator@angelmanregistry.info if you know of a study and/or study coordinator we should speak to to join forces.
