Welcome to the
Akcea ConnectTM Patient Support Program!
While hereditary transthyretin amyloidosis (hATTR) is a rare disease, you are not alone. Our program is meant for anyone with hATTR that is taking TEGSEDITM and is enrolled in the Akcea ConnectTM Patient Support Program.
The Akcea ConnectTM Patient Support Program is offered by Akcea Therapeutics Canada to assist and support patients on TEGSEDITM. Akcea ConnectTM is proud to offer support services, like injection training and administration support, and resources about hATTR and TEGSEDITM to help support you throughout your treatment journey. As part of this ongoing commitment, a Nurse Case Manager is available in Canada to provide ongoing support.
