PT-VWD Registry Table-May 2016 Update

Project is Now Complete.


About the Registry


The overall aim of the PT-VWD database/ registry project is to determine the frequency of this rare bleeding disorder in the world and to collect data about the molecular pathology, phenotype/genotype correlations as well as treatment. Therefore, we invite you to complete a form that includes the main information in order to allow us to learn about your experience with PT-VWD patients and if you would like to participate in the Canadian PT-VWD project.

The objectives of the PT-VWD Registry are:

  • To document patients with Platelet- type VWD worldwide.
  • To characterize genetic abnormalities responsible for this phenotype and to determine the frequency of misdiagnoses among type 2 B VWD
  • To increase awareness among physicians, hematologists and patients about the importance of discrimination between type 2B and PT-VWD
  • To improve the understanding of natural history of the disease, diagnosis and management and to establish a standard for treatment of bleeding conditions as well as prophylaxis.

Physicians worldwide are encouraged to collaborate, share observations, and evaluation data in an effort to guide and assess future diagnostic/therapeutic interventions.

Please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or by email in case any further details are required.

Yours sincerely,
