Join the RARE-X Data Collection Program

The STAR Foundation is partnering with RARE-X to build a data collection program for Salla families. When you participate in the Salla data collection program, you’ll help accelerate research and the development of new drugs, devices, and other therapies.

The Program aims to:
· Inform researchers how Salla changes over time
· Enable better data to use in clinical trials
· Give patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials
· Reduce the time it takes to study new medicines
· Speed up the time to get treatments to patients
· Enable the use of data as a placebo (instead of actual patients) in a clinical trial

Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible for you. By clicking on the link below, you can learn more about this one-of-a-kind data collection program and begin the first step in making your patient information available to researchers.

Join our family contact database

The STAR Foundation has established a contact database for family and caregiver information to provide families with targeted information regarding patient community support, emerging research efforts, and treatment information.

Part of this registration asks for primary and specialty care provider contact information. This data will be used to build a database of caregivers providing support to FSASD patients around the world. Periodically, STAR Foundation will reach out to those care providers and facilitate the exchange of knowledge to improve patient treatment out comes across the spectrum.

Every last bit of information helps in the study of rare disease. Registrant information will not be shared with anyone without your permission and is stored in a secure database.
