DATA COLLECTION STARTED FOR THE IAHCRC INTERNATIONAL STUDY OBSERV-AHC

Data collection for the OBSERV-AHC Study (a Study of the IAHCRC Consortium) started last September 1st, in Spain, France, UK and USA, supported by their national patient associations. In Italy, they are still waiting for the approval of their Ethics Committee, but they too are ready to start as soon as they obtain it.
Data will be collected and entered in the IAHCRC-CLOUD Platform by the data-entry clinicians during the neurological visits to the patients organized in collaboration with their supporting patient associations.
The caregivers of the enrolled patients are offered the possibility to record their AHC episodes directly in the IAHCRC-CLOUD Platform, through its Mobile App, so that also their data can be included in the Study.
