Professor Jemima Mellerio New Rare Diseases Centre

Congratulations to Professor Jemima Mellerio and the team at the new Rare Diseases Centre at St Thomas’ Hospital. The Countess of Wessex, Patron of DEBRA Charity recently opened the new centre.

The rare conditions treated at the Centre include epidermolysis bullosa (EB), a potentially fatal skin blistering condition which causes constant pain; xeroderma pigmentosum (XP), a genetic disorder affecting patients’ ability to repair the damage caused by ultraviolet (UV) light, significantly increasing their risk of skin cancer and eye disease as well as related disorders of DNA repair; Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS), a genetic disorder that can cause blindness, obesity and kidney disease as well as affect other parts of the body; and ichthyosis, a family of rare genetic skin disorders characterised by dry, thickened, scaly skin.

The Rare Diseases Centre has been funded by Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity, the charity DEBRA, the Four Acre Trust and the Photodermatology Charitable Trust.
