Acute intermittent porphyria
Is there clinical research going on for acute intermittent porphyria?
There is a clinical trial for adeno-associated virus based gene therapy for acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) underway in Europe. This means that doctors are using a virus to deliver a working copy of the HMBS gene to the patient's body to replace the copy that is not working properly. Other than this, there are various other projects currently going on to look for treatments and triggers of AIP attacks.
