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.
These resources provide more information about this condition or associated symptoms. The in-depth resources contain medical and scientific language that may be hard to understand. You may want to review these resources with a medical professional.

I was first diagnosed with Henoch-Schonlein purpura at age 10. The disease has been occurring more frequently and worsening over the past 10 years. It is my understanding that this condition is not as common in adults as it is in children. I am treated with steroids when needed, but I am trying to find out if there are any other effective treatments for this condition. Do you know of any treatment alternatives, preventions, or research studies that may be helpful? Have there been any genetic studies? Do I need to fear that my children will get this disease?
