Description

The Ataxia-Telangiectasia Society (ATS) is a registered charity in the United Kingdom dedicated to providing support and information to individuals and families affected by ataxia-telangiectasia. This is a rare inherited progressive disorder characterized by an impaired ability to control voluntary movements (ataxia); rapid, involuntary eye movements (nystagmus); permanent dilation of certain small blood vessels, resulting in small red lesions on the skin and other areas (telangiectasias); and primary immune deficiency, causing an increased predisposition to certain bacterial infections and malignancies. The A-T Society raises funds for research into the possible treatment and eventual cure for AT and supports a national AT clinic in Nottingham, England. It also endeavors to raise awareness of A-T in both the medical community and the general population.
