|פקולטה||Life Sciences, Medicine|
ACD is characterized by failure of formation and inward growth of alveolar capillaries, causing lack of contact with alveolar epithelium. Muscular thickening of small pulmonary arterioles, thickened alveolar walls, and anomalously-situated pulmonary veins are hallmarks of ACD. The disorder leads to hypoxia and persistent pulmonary hypertension of the neonate.The purpose of the NORD Research Grant Program is to encourage meritorious studies designed to improve the diagnosis or therapy of rare "orphan" diseases.
Funding: $50,000 total
It is expected that one grant will be awarded.
