Dr. Ashley Frazer-Abel Contributes to Emerging Knowledge of Hereditary Angioedema 

Ashley Frazer-Abel, Ph.D. participated in a scientific workshop attended by the world’s leading experts on hereditary angioedema (HAE) in April 2012. HAE is a familial condition that causes attacks of severe and often painful swelling throughout the body. The newest type of HAE, HAE Type III, is characterized by normal level and function of C1-inhibitor, a circulating complement protein that is deficient in HAE Type I and II patients. The workshop brought together international experts in angioedema researchers and clinical treatment with the objective of clarifying the current knowledge of Type III HAE, defining the gaps in our knowledge, and coming to a consensus on what characterizes this emerging clinical syndrome.As an expert in complementology, Dr. Frazer-Abel was the only invited laboratorian and as such served as consultant to attendees on how new HAE Type III research can best be translated into clinical diagnostic tests.
