EB Research

Searching for effective therapies

So far, Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) cannot be cured. A cure for this disease will only be found through intensive research and collaboration with the world's best scientists. As a result of preliminary work done by various research groups, there are now clear signs indicating what directions the search for a cure and/or effective therapeutical approaches could take.

Small and large breakthroughs in research - in Austria and in other leading countries - have been encouraging and give persons with EB confidence that it will be possible to ease their suffering in the foreseeable future.

Research is the key

According to the motto, "Research is the Key", DEBRA Austria, together with renowned researchers, has set itself the goal of promoting all research activities that contribute to alleviating and curing EB. To this end, a separate association (DEBRA Austria, Verein zur Förderung der EB-Forschung) was founded in 1999.

In order to find a cure, targeted high-level research is mandatory. Research projects for the "children with EB" are to a great extent funded by donations - your donations.
