Research helps us better understand diseases and can lead to advances in diagnosis and treatment. This section provides resources to help you learn about medical research and ways to get involved.
Support and advocacy groups can help you connect with other patients and families, and they can provide valuable services. Many develop patient-centered information and are the driving force behind research for better treatments and possible cures. They can direct you to research, resources, and services. Many organizations also have experts who serve as medical advisors or provide lists of doctors/clinics. Visit the group’s website or contact them to learn about the services they offer. Inclusion on this list is not an endorsement by GARD.

I have this condition since I was a child. It has presented itself in both lower legs, the left arm, the ring finger of my left hand, my crotch, and is presently in the middle finger of my right hand. Is it usual for Milroy disease to travel around the body like this? Is there a cure? See answer
I have two older brothers with Milroy disease. I do not exhibit any signs or symptoms of the condition. I am currently pregnant and was under the impression that since I do not show the signs of Milroy disease that my offspring would not be at risk for this disorder. Am I correct in my understanding that an autosomal dominant trait must be present in order to be passed on to offspring? See answer
Are there any clinical trials or testing being done anywhere on Nonne-Milroy disease? See answer
