About APBD Research Foundation
The APBD Research Foundation (APBDRF) is the only national non-profit health organization dedicated solely to finding the cause and cure for adult polyglucosan body disease (APBD). APBDRF strives to be the leading charitable funder and advocate of research worldwide. APBD is a fatal, neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells and pathways in the brain. It usually occurs later in life and progresses slowly. People with this condition develop problems in their ability to walk, speak, think and function normally in a variety of ways. APBDRF’s mission is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of APBD, support individuals and families affected by the disease, and increase awareness of APBD among health professionals and the public.
