Dupuytren Disease

Dupuytren disease is the most common inherited condition to affect the body's connective tissues.

It causes Dupuytren contracture - a progressive, permanent bend of the fingers.

10 million Americans and many more worldwide suffer from this crippling hand condition.

Current treatments provide temporary improvement: there is currently no cure - yet.
