As well as taking part in the RaDaR Rare Disease Registry, we recommend that patients who are interested in research visit the NIHR’s new Be Part of Research website which allows you to search for studies by condition and/or location.
Studies that are being led or endorsed by Clinicians involved in RaDaR are advertised on the Patient Information pages for each condition.
As of 1st July 2019 there are 23,150 UK patients in RaDaR from 100 hospitals. In June there were 301 new recruits. Recruits by cohort and hospital can found below.

There are trials for adult patients with primary hyperoxaluria types 1, 2 & 3 and enteric hyperoxaluria, which are all recruiting or about to start. Here are the key inclusion criteria:
•Adult patient with PH1: eGFR>45 and 24h U Oxalate >700 umol/24h
•Adult patient with PH1 or 2: eGFR>30 and 24h U Oxalate >600 umol/24h
•Adult patient with PH1,2 or 3: eGFR between 15 and 90 and relatively high urine oxalate (likely to give plasma oxalate>10 umol/l but it is not necessary to measure this)
•Adult with enteric hyperoxaluria: eGFR>30 and 24h U Oxalate >550 umol/24h
These are with investigational products from Alnylam, Dicerna, Oxthera and Allena respectively.
Enquiries will be directed to the units conducting these trials. We are also happy to see patients as a one-off or on-going or just discuss details of these trials with patients or clinicians. If you are a patient or relative of someone with one of these conditions, please ask your doctor about these trials, or contact Melanie.email@example.com
