Global Fibrosis Foundation
250 Main Street
Cambridge, MA 02142
The Global Fibrosis Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help educate patients, families and the medical community about nephrogenic systemic fibrosis and other organ specific fibrosing processes; to support research into prevention and treatment; and to advocate on behalf of patients. Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis (NSF) is a systemic disorder that occurs in some patients with kidney disease in which fibrous tissues develop within the connective tissues of the skin, eyes, internal organs and joints. Gadolinium-based MRI contrast agents are theorized to be a possible trigger for NSF.
