The AADC Research Trust

Welcome to The AADC Research Trust, a Charity Organisation dedicated to helping children and their families, around the World, affected by Aromatic Amino Acid Decarboxylase Deficiency (AADC).

AADC is a genetically inherited neurological disorder affecting the brains ability to produce neurotransmitters, dopamine and serotonin. These are two of the most essential neurotransmitters needed for every day living! (more detailed information can be found under ‘aadc explained’)

The AADC Research Trust hopes to:

  • help support children with Aromatic Amino Acid Decarboxylase Deficiency (AADC)
  • promote worldwide disease awareness
  • fund scientific research

We currently know of 100 children, spanning 26 different countries who have been correctly diagnosed with AADC deficiency. It has proved fatal to at least 7 of those children.
