What is the ACCELERATE Natural History Study?
The ACCELERATE registry is a research study and the first-ever global patient registry for Castleman disease. The goal of the registry is to combine medical data from hundreds of patients with Castleman disease so that researchers can discover patterns and clues that may help physicians better understand and treat Castleman disease. Patients from around the world can enroll online. Once enrolled, medical data is collected, de-identified to protect patient confidentiality, and entered into a database by the team at the University of Pennsylvania. Participation in the ACCELERATE registry is entirely voluntary. We hope that the registry will provide insights about Castleman disease and its possible treatments so that medical care of Castleman disease patients will be improved in the future.
