Research

Supporting medical research leading to a cure for EM is a core mission of TEA. Since its founding in 1999, TEA has raised money for its Research Fund, which is restricted to use for research.

We have constructed a timeline to highlight research progress in the EM field and provide detailed explanations of inherited EM research authored by Stephen Waxman, PhD, Yale University School of Medicine and Veterans’ Administration, and Joost Drenth, MD, Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Center.

TEA also announces appropriate research studies where researchers are asking for those with EM to volunteer for their projects. Not all volunteers will be selected to participate, as the research studies may need individuals with specific symptomatic or overall health characteristics. TEA does not sponsor or work directly with these projects, and questions regarding any aspect of the projects must go directly to the contacts listed in the project descriptions.

Why Support Inherited EM Research?

Most research into EM is focused on people with inherited EM, yet, people with inherited EM are just a small percentage of those suffering from the disease.

Research Studies List

The Erythromelalgia Association (TEA) lists research initiatives recruiting participants with inherited and/or primary erythromelalgia as an information service only.
