The Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome Registry (LND NET) is operated through a multipurpose web site for parents, patients, teachers, doctors, researchers, and students. Parents can get information on genetic testing and medical care. They can learn about adaptive equipment and exchange handyman suggestions. Parents are encouraged to register, and get help with networking. Doctors can find medical information and other areas of interest. Researchers can make contact with research subjects and participate in the research forum and essay. Students can get help with basic information and research projects. There is a glossary, a bibliography, and help finding Internet library sites. Everyone can participate in the forum. Topics include "Favorite Medicines", "Diet for Behavior and Health", "Research Ideas", "Politics and LND", and others. A patient "refrigerator door" is provided where patients can submit artwork, photos and written material. There is also an E-mail "pen pal" service that helps patients meet other patients with Lesch-Nyhan disease. Comments, suggestions and submissions are encouraged.
