Hughes Syndrome Foundation is a UK registered charity dedicated to promoting awareness and funding research into Hughes Syndrome (ie antiphospholipid syndrome (ASP)). The website provides information about the charity and all aspects of Hughes Syndrome for patients, doctors and supporters.
Hughes Syndrome is an autoimmune disorder which can present many clinical features, some of which are life-threatening. However, once diagnosed, HS is potentially treatable but, unfortunately, as the condition is relatively new, it often goes undetected or misdiagnosed. It is hoped that in raising the profile of HS more will be discovered about its causes, prevalence and treatment.
