Resources that can change lives
At Assembly Bio, providing knowledge and support for patients and caregivers is an essential part of our mission. We encourage anyone affected by serious viral diseases to examine and utilize the many valuable tools and organizations available today. With that goal in mind, including how to research clinical trials, locate support groups or learn more, we’ve compiled the following list of useful resources:
ClinicalTrials.gov is a web-based resource that provides patients, their family members, healthcare professionals, and researchers with easy access to information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies investigating the latest treatments for a wide range of diseases. The website is maintained by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Search for hepatitis B or your specific condition to find relevant trial information.
The American Liver Foundation is a nationwide network of volunteers and staff that provides awareness, outreach, programs and support services to educate the public about liver health and improve the lives of individuals with liver disease. The organization’s mission is to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease.
The Hepatitis B Foundation is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to finding a cure and improving the quality of life for those affected by hepatitis B worldwide. The Foundation’s commitment includes funding focused research, promoting disease awareness, supporting immunization and treatment initiatives, and serving as the primary source of information for patients and their families, the medical and scientific community, and the general public.
San Francisco Hep B Free – Bay Area is a multi-county campaign aimed to create healthy communities by decreasing, and ultimately, eliminating the transmission and medical complications from hepatitis B. The three objectives of the campaign are: 1) to create public and healthcare provider awareness about the importance of testing and vaccinating Asians and Pacific Islanders for hepatitis B; 2) to promote routine hepatitis B testing and vaccination of Asian and Pacific Islanders by primary care providers; 3) to advocate for accessible, affordable, and culturally and linguistically appropriate linkages to care and treatment for individuals chronically infected with hepatitis B.
