The Purine Research Society is a national, non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to funding research and treatments for purine-related metabolic diseases. Errors in the metabolism of purines (compounds commonly found in food) can lead to a variety of disorders. Established in 1986 by parents of children with purine autism (autistic children who excrete too much uric acid in their urine), the society serves people with purine metabolic disorders and their families, healthcare professionals, and the general public. The Purine Research Society provides appropriate referrals to affected individuals and offers educational pamphlets and brochures, as well as a purine restricted diet.
