The ARC is also hosting an extremely important meeting on November 16th with the FDA in Bethesda, Maryland. This is an unprecedented opportunity for amyloidosis patients to inform and educate the FDA about the need for new treatments.

The FDA has requested that we hold this meeting.

We need patients and their advocates to demonstrate their support by attending – and there will also be an opportunity for patients to speak. The ARC is working closely with the Amyloidosis Foundation, Amyloidosis Support Groups and the core amyloidosis centers to drive this initiative forward.
