The Aplastic Anaemia Trust

The Aplastic Anaemia Trust is the only charity in the UK dedicated solely to research into aplastic anaemia and the support of patients and their families. Few people know about this disease despite the fact that it is as common as some types of leukaemia and just as devastating. Our Patient Support provides free emotional support as well as expert, up-to-date information about aplastic anaemia and the treatments available.

With money raised, The AAT has established and supported focused research groups and provided specialist clinical facilities to improve the treatment of AA.

The Aplastic Anaemia Trust Launches Its New Research Strategy

Today we have launched our new research strategy.

Since our establishment in the 1990s, incredible effort and commitment from our fundraising supporters and the unwavering dedication from world-leading haematology researchers at St George’s and King’s College Hospitals in London we have spent over £3m to enable ground-breaking research into aplastic anaemia and provide everyone affected with excellent emotional and clinical support.

Thanks in large part to the effort of the AAT, survival rates have vastly improved, with 8 out of 10 patients responding well to treatment and leading normal lives.

We recognise that more remains to be done to ensure that everyone affected, whether adult or child, survives the effects of the devastating disease and can lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

Today more than ever we are committed to enabling research in the areas that will lead to improved treatments for all patients affected, better understanding of aplastic anaemia and allied rare bone marrow failures, and ultimately finding a cure.

We are only able to do this thanks to the time and donations from our generous supporters. Every one of you should feel proud of your contribution to the progress we’ve been able to make and the part you played.
