The Acid Maltase Deficiency Association, Inc. (AMDA) is a non-profit organization directed toward the advancement of research in acid maltase deficiency (also known as Pompe's disease). Pompe's disease, a glycogen storage disease with onset during infancy, childhood, or adulthood, is inherited as an autosomal recessive genetic trait. Symptoms develop due to deficiency of the enzyme, alpha-1, 4 glucosidase. Founded in 1995 and consisting of over 500 members, the association publishes brochures and informational literature; sponsors an annual conference for the scientific community to discuss crucial issues related to Pompe's disease; and maintains a patient/family registry. This registry is used to disseminate information to affected families about current scientific breakthroughs, dietary information, and other issues vital to daily living. In addition the AMDA sends out a newsletter and sponsors patient informational teleconference calls.
