The Council for Bile Acid Deficiency Diseases (CBADD) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase public awareness of the existence of bile acid deficiency diseases by developing educational materials that describe the nature of the bile acid deficiencies and by providing educational programs and public forums for patients, their families, medical professionals and the general public. CBADD also strive to facilitate the availability of early diagnosis and treatment of bile acid deficiencies by advocating for development, commercial availability and supporting research; providing a forum for families with children suffering from bile acid deficiencies to share their concerns, needs, and gain information on diagnoses, and characterizations of their child’s disease and treatment options; educating health care and regulatory agencies as to the need for programs to stimulate research and facilitate development of new diagnostics, patient support programs and new therapeutics; advocating for colic acid deficiencies through coordination and active participation with other existing disease advocacy groups; initiating and promoting fundraising activities with a primary focus on non-profit foundations and corporations, in order to supplement and expand the activities of the Council; establishing a Medical/Scientific Advisory Committee within the Council for medical inquiries and discussion, and to provide advice to the Council on medical/scientific issues. The Council is a voluntary association of individuals, patients, health care professionals and commercial entities, interested in helping CBADD achieve their stated mission and goals. Bile acid deficiency diseases are a group of disorders caused by inborn genetic errors from one of seventeen enzymes in the bile acid synthetic pathway. These disorders have been known to cause poor absorption of nutrients, poor growth and progressive liver failure in afflicted patients.
