ACD Association
The Alveolar Capillary Dysplasia Association (ACDA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to finding the cause and cure for ACD. The purpose of the ACDA is to raise money for ACD research, gather and share information, provide a supportive environment to families and encourage research related to ACD.  This site is the foundation of a support system and database for both families and physicians throughout the world.  Affected families that are interested in joining our efforts please click here.

The ACDA engages in fundraising, publishes newsletters, encourages fundraising activities by affected families and their friends, supports on-going medical research and maintains a list of medical journal articles related to ACD. It is our hope that these efforts will culminate in finding the cause and ultimately a cure for ACD.

NOTE: There is a critical need for patient tissue samples to improve the success of on-going ACD research. For more information, please click here
