Farber Disease

Join our Farber disease community to stay connected about information and upcoming opportunities.

When you join the FREE Clara Farber disease community our team will work with you to find information and opportunities that best fit your unique Farber journey.


Farber disease is a rare, progressive disease caused by a reduction (deficiency) of an enzyme called acid ceramidase. Farber disease is also sometimes called Farber lipogranulomatosis, acid ceramidase deficiency, or an ASAH1-related disorder.

Farber disease causes excess amounts of lipids (ceramide) to build up to harmful levels in the cells of different organs and tissues causing damage and inflammation. The symptoms of Farber disease can vary widely between individuals, however the most common symptoms include joint problems (arthritis or contractures), nodules or bumps under the skin, and a hoarse voice.

One Place For The Farber Disease Community.

The Farber disease journey you or your loved one are on is unique. You deserve a team that will treat it as such. That's exactly what our team at Clara is built to do.

Our team works with cutting-edge technology, a dedicated support team, and research teams to help you find opportunities that are right for you.

What Should I Expect?

The Clara Farber disease community is for all patients and caregivers of patients with Farber disease or an ASAH1-related disorder. Our goal is to provide patients with educational resources and information about any upcoming research opportunities.

Once you submit the intake form, our team will begin looking for information, research opportunities, and support groups for you based on the answers you provide.

We will follow up with you to share general resources about Farber disease and to help you through the process of learning about clinical trials and getting connected to the study team for any trials that you are interested in learning more about.
