In connection with the Day of Rare Diseases , the Ulm University Hospital held another AA / PNH patient seminar on March 6th, 2021. Due to the pandemic, it took place in virtual form for the first time and also attracted numerous participants in this format.
Dear AA / PNH fellow patients,
Some time ago we informed you about a survey initiated by our association in cooperation with the lichter zellen foundation . The purpose of this survey is to record the effects that COVID-19 vaccination has on our patient group. At the same time, AA / PNH patients who have recovered from a COVID-19 disease can also take part in the survey.
We were able to make the survey known around the world, among other things, through the global network PNH Global Alliance . In the meantime, 72 patients from Germany, Austria and Switzerland and 12 patients from Europe have taken part in our survey. We are particularly pleased about the participation of 8 patients so far from Australia, Iran, Canada, Turkey and the USA.
This gives us the chance to make the results of this survey available to science in order to enable better care for our relatively small patient group in the future.
In order to achieve meaningful results, we are still dependent on the active participation of AA / PNH patients. Please pay attention to our survey and take a few minutes to answer the anonymous survey. You are helping all AA and PNH patients.WEITER
Dear fellow AA and PNH patients,
Some time ago the first AA / PNH patients received their COVID-19 vaccination. But what effects do the vaccination or the COVID-19 disease have on our relatively small group of patients? In order to collect knowledge about this and to be able to make the results of science available for better care in the future, we are carrying out an international survey in cooperation with the Lichter Zellen foundation . The data is collected completely anonymously, i.e. without any personal or personally identifiable information. There is no way that your data can be assigned to you afterwards.
If you would like to receive further information or results about this survey or the AA / PNH register from us, you can enter your e-mail address after the survey. This is saved separately from the survey data.
The survey can be accessed under the following link: https://aa-pnh.org/umfragen/irvap/de/
Thank you in advance for your participation! You are helping all AA and PNH patients.
We would be delighted if, after answering the survey, you would inform other AA / PNH patients about it. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us by email at info (at) aa-pnh.de .
