The APS Type 1 Foundation supports education, awareness, and fundraising for critical research.

Join The APS Type 1 (APECED) Registry

NEW!  Please help us grow the registry with our new brochure.  Share it with your care team.

The APS Type 1 (APECED) Registry is a secure database that provides a way to collect information from many different people with APS Type 1 and to update information over time as conditions and experiences change. The surveys are intended to gather information about many different aspects of APS Type 1, including details about diagnosis, prognosis, treatments, which disorders the patient has and when they were acquired, medications, hospitalizations and quality of life.
