Date of Creation
Dupuytren's disease (DD) is a chronic condition in which fibrosis of tissue beneath the palm of the hand occurs. Causes and mechanisms of this disease's development are still not entirely understood. However, symptoms and the negative impact on individuals' quality of life are evident. While existing therapies for DD have been established to prevent and slow its progression, further research is needed to effectively address it on a wider scale.
