Your child's medical records can contribute to ASMD research
Wylder Nation Foundation and PicnicHealth are working together to advance ASMD (Acid Sphingomyelinase Deficiency) research. PicnicHealth’s innovative research combines de-identified medical record data from volunteers, so Wylder Nation Foundation and other researchers can understand how ASMD progresses over time, as well as how the disease is actually managed and treated in the real-world. We hope this will lead to better care, a better understanding of the disease, and ultimately new treatments.
ASMD Accelerate is initially focused on two specific types of ASMD associated with some form of neurological involvement; we are now including all three types of ASMD
1) Infantile Neurovisceral ASMD (Niemann-Pick Disease Type A)
2) Chronic Neurovisceral ASMD (Niemann-Pick Disease Type A/B)
3) Chronic Visceral ASMD (Niemann-Pick Type B)

Historically, the natural history of ASMD has been difficult to study and has required traveling to centers of excellence to participate in research. With this study, data from your child’s medical records can be used by researchers to learn about what it is like to have ASMD in the real-world.
Understanding the holistic impact of ASMD is critical to advancing research. Real-world evidence from medical records can be essential before launching a clinical trial, as a control-arm in research, determining efficacy, and ultimately approving an experimental treatment.
Contribute to research without leaving your home. No extra treatments, no extra visits, no experiments.
If your child is still on their medical journey, ASMD Accelerate can help you better manage their care by centralizing medical records so you and doctors can make the most informed decisions.
If your child has passed away, their medical journey can provide valuable insights to researchers and clinicians. Enroll in ASMD Accelerate to carry on their legacy while accelerating ASMD research and improving outcomes for other families.
PicnicHealth and Wylder Nation won’t share you or your child's personal information. And no information is shared without your consent first. All medical information is de-identified before sharing with other researchers.
PicnicHealth puts security first. We protect your child's information with end-to-end encryption and use HIPAA compliant practices.
PicnicHealth uses an independent third party (Institutional Review Board) as an external check to make sure our practices are always ethical.
For those still managing their child’s care, stay informed about your child’s health. When you have access to your child’s full history, you can make the best decisions about their care.
Access your child’s records from anywhere. Share your child’s full medical history—including scans and imaging—instantly with your family or doctors.
For those still managing their child’s care, by participating in ASMD Accelerate, we’ll collect and organize your child’s complete medical history for free.
