     The 2016 aHUS global survey just launched in 2 new translations, now making this poll available in Japanese and Russian along with Italian, Spanish, French, and English versions.  Due to the rollout of these new additional languages, the 2016 aHUS poll will remain open through 15 April to encourage responses from aHUS adult patients and caregivers of pediatric patients.

 

     Patient and caregiver poll responses can provide better understanding and insights into aHUS diagnosis, treatment, and medical care from the patient perspective.  The 2016 global survey questions were suggested from various sources, to include topics from the June 2015 aHUS Alliance multi-national meeting of patient organizations in London,  online discussions across aHUS social media outlets, and interactions with aHUS researchers in conjunction with input from various interfaces within the aHUS arena. Additionally, some poll items were designed to help patient groups better understand the needs of their members and to explore the differences in care, diagnosis and treatment access around the world. 

 

     The 2016 aHUS global survey should provide an updated view to the 2014 RareConnect poll which centered on how patients and their families move through the process of obtaining a diagnosis, while also providing survey information about various impacts or consequences of the disease on their lives. (In partnership withRareConnect in 2014, with link below, had 214 respondents from 17 nations and responding to outreach in 6 different languages.) Additionally this survey information might also offer some insight into how patients might more fully engage with, or become informed about opportunities and advancements in aHUS research, studies, clinical trials, and aHUS registry efforts.

     As of 2 April 2016, here are select data from the global poll which will remain open through 15 April.  The 2016 aHUS global poll currently has had 180 respondents from patients or pediatric caregivers from 19 countries.  Pediatric caregivers were 47% of survey participants, with 53% of respondents identifying themselves as adult aHUS patients.  One survey question sought data related to months  of aHUS onset for patients, with seasonal onset distribution so far noted as:  Jan-March 24%, Apr-June 19%, July-Sep 24% and Oct-Dec onset period at 33% noted by respondents as of this interim survey update.
