Welcome to the International Pompe Association (IPA)
April 15, 2019
Today is our 6th International Pompe Day!
The goal of International Pompe Day is to foster international awareness of Pompe Disease and the slogan for our day is Together We Are Strong.
The IPA believes that raising awareness about Pompe Disease is key, and for 2019 the theme that has been selected is Moving On with Pompe: an encouraging and positive theme to show how it is possible to continue living a fulfilling life after diagnosis and despite the challenges of living with Pompe disease, in the hope of inspiring others.
Inspiring stories from our international community have been collected in a dedicated blog that the IPA has specifically created: https://ipompeday.blogspot.com
Please read and share these stories, so we can inspire others and show the world how strong our Community is!
Thanks to all that have contributed with their story, and happy International Pompe Day!

There are multiple clinical trials that are currently underway for Pompe disease. Because there are so many different trials, which is unique for a rare disease like Pompe, it is important to understand the clinical trial process, the trials phases, and other basic information.
Please find in the attachment a short overview of clinical trials in general.
