Kawasaki Disease Foundation Announces Partnership with Sanford Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford (CoRDS) Registry

International, central registry will help accelerate research efforts into Kawasaki Disease

(Sioux Falls, SD) –
Patients with Kawasaki Disease have a new way to participate in research, supported by Kawasaki Disease Foundation. The Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford registry is an international and central registry of individuals of any age who have been diagnosed with a rare disease. The registry is open to all patients diagnosed with a rare disease—and those who are as of yet undiagnosed—increasing the registry's appeal to researchers. Research on rare disease is being done around the world. Instead of working independently in silos, we will now be able to pool our resources and make sure we’re heading forward in the same direction.
