What is Amyloidosis ?

Amyloidosis is a rare systemic disease caused by deposits of amyloid protein fibrils in one or more organs, causing the organs to malfunction. There are three main types: Primary Amyloidosis (AL), Secondary Amyloidosis (AA) and Familial Amyloidosis (FAP), which is the genetic form.
