The national amyloidosis centre at the Royal Free is the only centre in the UK specialising in amyloidosis.

Amyloidosis is a group of disorders where proteins called amyloid are abnormally deposited in organs causing disease. These deposits can accumulate virtually anywhere within the body and symptoms vary greatly from patient to patient.

The centre diagnoses and treats patients with all types of amyloidosis from across the UK, as well as providing counselling and information to patients and their families. Around 500 new patients with amyloidosis are seen every year.

The centre is also part of University College London’s centre for amyloidosis and acute phase proteins, one of the world’s leading centres for amyloid research.
