Do you have Hereditary Angioedema?

Hereditary Angioedema (HAE) is one of Dr. McNeil’s areas of expertise. We are currently screening participants that may qualify for a new clinical research study for an investigational medication.

Hereditary Angioedema Facts

  • HAE stems from a genetic predisposition, unlike other forms of the condition such as allergic, idiopathic and drug-induced angioedema.
  • HAE is a rare condition that affects approximately one in 10,000 to one in 50,000 people around the world, according to the latest clinical research.
  • The primary symptoms of HAE are swelling of the throat, tongue, eyes, lips, hands and feet, but HAE also causes gastrointestinal swelling too.
  • HAE differs substantially from hives, a common allergic reaction.
  • HAE attacks can last as long as two to five days.
  • Attacks can be triggered by surgery, trauma, dental procedures and even emotional stress, but HAE attacks follow no distinct recurrent pattern, even among family members.
  • Current medication regimens are only minimally effective against the onset and duration of HAE attacks.
  • In the most severe cases, HAE attacks can be fatal due to swelling of the airways.
