C3G Natural History Study

A natural history study tracks the course of a disease over time. The goal of this type of study is to collect information about disease progression that will inform research and the development of new medicines and treatments.

There is a multinational natural history study of C3G in progress called, "Natural History Study of C3 Glomerulopathy (C3G): Discovery of Histological Predictors of Outcome." It is being led by Imperial College London. The study is expected to be 3 years in length and will involve 400 participants, with results to be shared publicly.

Achillion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. is a sponsor of this study.

Patient-Focused Drug Development Meeting

There are times when patients, caregivers, and doctors who are experts in a certain disease formally come together to discuss what it is like to live with the disorder. These meetings are called Patient-Focused Drug Development (PFDD) meetings. They inform companies, organizations, and regulatory authorities about the patient perspective on a disease and its treatments, and can help support making new medicines available to patients.

In August 2017, a PFDD in C3G was led by the National Kidney Foundation with participation from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Learn more about the meeting and patient perspectives shared there here. This meeting was sponsored by Achillion Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
