Cystinosis is a rare inherited disease occurring in about 1 in 200,000 births within developed countries. It occurs when the mechanism removing excess cystine (an amino acid) breaks down.
However, these days with better understanding and earlier diagnosis, people with cystinosis are able to lead a longer, fuller life. It is the Foundation's aim to aid researchers and the cystinosis community to strive for continued improvements.
