“RP The Ride of My Life”

This powerful documentary about Nancy and her family’s journey through many years of struggling with painful and debilitating symptoms with an unknown cause, eventually being diagnosed with an extremely rare autoimmune disease, Relapsing Polychondritis (“RP”), and ultimately finding the strength and courage to persevere with a purpose to raise awareness about RP, help others in diagnosis and support, and advance research efforts about this and other autoimmune diseases in pursuit of treatments and cures.

On 9 November 2019, members of the International Relapsing Polychondritis Research Network (IRPRN) met at The American Hotel in Atlanta, GA to (1) provide an update on the relapsing polychondritis (RP) classification criteria project, (2) introduce a new project to modify the RP disease activity index, and (3) discuss ongoing and recently completed RP-related projects.

Thank you to the highly skilled, collaborative, global experts -- with a broad range of specialties and disciplines -- for meeting to advance research to facilitate treatments and a cure for RP.

The Relapsing Polychondritis Foundation and Race for RP were most pleased to facilitate the IRPRN meeting and look forward to supporting future collaborative meetings that benefit the RP and autoimmune disease communities.

RP is a debilitating autoimmune condition characterized by recurrent inflammation of cartilage and other tissues throughout the body. The disease, which can be fatal, affects multiple organs, particularly cartilaginous structures such as the ears, nose, airways and joints as well as eyes, skin, heart valves and brain. The signs and symptoms vary from person to person depending on which parts of the body are affected.
