Clinical Research Group on Inflammatory Amyloidosis (AA) Sorbonne University


  • Groupe de recherche clinique

AA amyloidosis is a rare heterogeneous disease related to the deposition in tissues of an inflammation protein: Serum Amyloid A protein (SAA). It complicates chronic inflammatory states and has a significant morbidity/mortality. Our research group will be a unique structure composed of all the clinical and medico-technical services involved in the management of AA amyloidosis at Sorbonne University. Its objectives are to create an epidemiological database, to develop more efficient diagnostic and monitoring tools, to better understand the pathophysiology and to set up therapeutic trials. Already supported by the French Amyloidosis Patient Association, it aims to be the national and European leader on AA amyloidosis by the number of patients included and the synergy of all specialists involved.

The faculty of medicine is closed to the public and operates according to a business continuity plan (research, pedagogy, administrative) since Monday, March 16, 2020. The closure of the faculty to the public effectively results in the cancellation of all courses in face-to-face. Research activities and vital administrative activities are maintained, under the conditions specified by the university administration in the Business Continuity Plan. Beyond the end of classroom lessons, university libraries are closed. The situation is constantly changing, staff and students are invited to consult their emails, the university intranet and the FAQ to stay informed.

All users (students and staff) have access to more precise information on a dedicated page:
