dupuytrens

I received a newspaper article from a friend on drug, AA4500, regarding dupuytren's disease. I have a very extreme case of the disease. I have had several surgeries on my hands and my fingers still continue to curl. I would be very interested in a drug that could treat this devasting disease so I would not have to undergo more extensive surgery that involves months of hand therapy.

AA4500

Until AA4500 is approved by the FDA your best bet is NA. Many of have had NA and we are doing very well. I had my little finger bent 50 degress 3 years ago. Dr. Eaton did NA on it. My pinkie is still straight with no bending after 3 years now. Please contact the nearest NA Dr. for information on your case before you consider surgery.
