Care and Treatment of Amyloidosis

Conditions Treated

Amyloidosis is a disease characterized by proteins abnormally depositing in various organs in the body. The hallmark of amyloidosis is the specific pattern of deposition – where the proteins deposit as tiny fibrils in a sheet-like fashion.

AA (secondary) amyloidosis

This protein is produced by the body in response to inflammation or infection. Prolonged high levels can lead to amyloid deposits. 

AL primary amyloidosis

A condition in which an abnormal protein called amyloid builds up in tissues and organs, affecting their shape and functionality.

Amyloidosis

A disease characterized by an abnormal build up of proteins (called amyloids) in various organs in the body. 

Familial ATTR amyloidosis

An inherited disease in which the body makes a mutant form of a protein likely to form into amyloid fibrils.

Senile ATTR amyloidosis

Develops in old age (80 and over) and amyloid deposits accumulate slowly, most commonly affecting the heart.
