Cold Agglutinin Disease (CAgD)

Do you have Cold Agglutinin Disease?

We are looking for individuals who have been medically diagnosed with Primary CAgD to participate in a study to see whether a new investigational product can increase haemoglobin (Hgb) levels in order to eliminate the need for blood transfusions in the treatment of CAgD.

We are currently recruiting study participants who:

  • Are 18 years of age or older.
  • Have been medically diagnosed with Primary Cold Agglutinin Disease (CAgD).

The study will be split into two parts. For part A of the study, participants will need to attend 16 clinic visits over a 6-month period. For part B, participants will need to attend fortnightly clinic visits for up to 2 years.
