Fight Dupuytrens Disease with the IDDB and the NDB

Join NDB and IDDB research for Dupuytrens

International Dupuytren Data Bank (IDDB)

is a research project with a target of finding the cause and cure for Dupuytren Disease and related conditions. The IDDB is sponsored by the Dupuytren Foundation in partnership with the National Data Bank for Rheumatic Diseases. The IDDB is free for all participants, and has three phases:
  1. Survey people with and without Dupuytren disease for clues about their biology.
    (Enroll and fill out follow-up progress surveys online)
  2. Collect blood samples from those surveyed.
    (We’ll let you know how to do this.)
  3. Compare survey results with DNA and other blood tests to develop prevention rather than procedures.
