Piaggio Aero supports the fight against rare pulmonary diseases.
In many fields, rarity is a virtue: in medicine, however, it results in a difficulty in diagnosis, a lack of dedicated assistance and rare therapeutic possibilities.
Rare pulmonary diseases strike a large percentage of the population, but due to the lack of useful drugs they are often fatal to young adults, the most frequent sufferers of the disease.
For these very reasons, the last few years have seen a rise in interest, nevertheless, clinical resources and research have still not reached an adequate level.
Piaggio Aero is now happily working together with The University of Modena and Reggio Emilia’s Interdepartmental Centre for Rare Pulmonary Diseases, and together they are supporting the National Convention for rare pulmonary diseases, which will take place on the 20th and 21st of April.
This convention will hopefully aid the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, which, by bringing together and coordinating all the effort put in by various professional individuals, hopes provide an adequate clinic and develop an innovative research process, therefore opening new doors for this fight against rare pulmonary diseases.
The convention will be attended by Professor Robert Huber Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1998.
The initiative is open to all health workers, patients and their families, and anyone else who believes that rare does not mean irrelevant.
