Staying Connected

PXE International strives to connect people with other people with PXE, the research about PXE, and with our organization in order to provide the best possible care and services to those we represent. Here are several ways you can stay better connected with PXE International and all the services we provide to support you.

Registering with PXE International provides critical data that helps nations around the world recognize that funding PXE research is important. Registration helps PXE International help you - by being counted, by participating in research. Your voice for PXE will be heard!

When you register with PXE International, you are added to our database of individuals affected with pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE). Your contact information will never be shared with anyone unless you give us permission to do so in your registration, and then it will only be shared with affected individuals who are interested in connecting with other affected individuals.
