The mission of the CMAF is to empower people with the knowledge and understanding of amyloidosis for earlier detection,
ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease and to help science find the cures.

What is Amyloidosis?

Amyloidosis (am-uh-loi-DO-sis) is a disease that occurs when substances called amyloid proteins build up in your organs. Amyloid is an abnormal protein usually produced by cells in your bone marrow that can be deposited in any tissue or organ.

Amyloidosis can affect different organs in different people, and there are different types of amyloid. Amyloidosis frequently affects the heart, kidneys, liver, spleen, nervous system and gastrointestinal tract.

Amyloidosis is rare, and the exact cause is often unknown. Treatments are available to help you manage your symptoms of amyloidosis and limit the production of amyloid protein. More details and symptoms can be found on Mayo Clinic’s website by clicking here.
