Pompe Disease Clinical Trial Perception Survey

A biotech company that conducts research and develops treatments for people living with rare diseases such as Pompe disease wants your help. They are recruiting Pompe patients and caregivers to take a short online survey about your knowledge and understanding of clinical trials and research.

The results of this survey will help guide the development of patient support and awareness programs for current and future clinical trials. In appreciation of your time, the summary of the results of this survey will be shared with surveyors and patient advocacy organizations via email. The link to the survey is below:

We appreciate you sharing your opinion and experiences to help shape the future of Pompe clinical trials. Better treatment options are common goals across our community, and your voice is essential to progress toward new therapies.
