As the COVID pandemic gradually recedes into a manageable endemic disease the UK is opening itself up again for new research. Clinical trials that were halted in 2020 are restarting, and new projects are being funded at the National Aspergillosis Centre.

The National Aspergillosis Centre benefits from FIT funding that allows us to host large Facebook groups such as the National Aspergillosis Centre Support (UK) group and also groups that support their research into Chronic Pulmonary Aspergillosis (CPA) and Allergic Bronchopulmonary Aspergillsosi (ABPA). This patient participation and involvement is vital for NAC research.

For example, we have a brand new research project that will look at providing evidence for the use of a new type of treatment for those who can no longer be given azole antifungal medication - starting up in early 2023.

Your donations will help FIT NAC support thousands of patients and carers both now and into the future - so many patients & carers have told us how important this support is and what a difference it has made to their lives, and our researchers stress how important this involvement is in their research projects - from first applying for funding through to testing the outcomes.

This is an important contribution to aspergillosis support & research and a major reason why we have come so far over the last 20 years.
