FOP Registry HCP

About the FOP Registry

The FOP Registry is a rare disease registry that is operated by the IFOPA, and dedicated to accelerating FOP research, enabling clinical trials in FOP and improving the understanding of FOP natural history.

Since its inception in 2015, patients and their caregivers have provided detailed information to the FOP Registry about their disease, including symptoms, flares and doctor visits. Now the FOP Registry is also open to healthcare professionals who submit patient information via a secure, web-based medical portal.

Why Participate in the FOP Registry

Registries for rare diseases such as FOP can play an important role in understanding the course of the disease, as well as providing information necessary for clinical trial design. 1

Contributing data on your patients with FOP directly improves the knowledge base on this rare disease, enabling you and other healthcare professionals to submit data requests to the FOP Registry for use in publications or other research.

Advisory Boards

The FOP Registry Advisory Boards provide important input for the ongoing development and oversight of the patient and medical FOP Registry portals, as well as assistance with publications including data analysis, manuscript development, submission and review. This group of FOP experts provides critical insights and contributions to the advancement of FOP research.
