CSL Behring Partners with Pro Supercross Racer Carl Schlacht to Encourage Those with Primary Immunodeficiency to be a "ChamPIon"
Date:12/13/2012

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CSL Behring has teamed up with Professional Supercross racer Carl Schlacht to launch www.IamaChamPIon.com. This new online resource is part of the I am a ChamPIon campaign, a partnership that aims to raise awareness of primary immunodeficiency disease (PI or PIDD) while encouraging those with the condition to pursue their dreams despite the challenges that PI can pose. 

"PI is a genetic disorder that can have a dramatic impact on a person's ability to participate in daily activities due to a weakened immune system that leaves him or her vulnerable to common infections. If PI is left untreated, infections can occur – some severe enough to cause permanent and irreversible organ damage," said Dr. John Sleasman, Chief of the Division of Pediatric Allergy, Immunology and Rheumatology at the University of South Florida. "While the condition is not curable, immunoglobulin treatments can help supplement the immune system to allow patients to lead active lives."

Carl is just one of approximately 250,000 individuals (or one in 1,200) diagnosed with PI in the United States. Race fans watching Carl perform high flying jumps and difficult maneuvers would never know that he requires a weekly subcutaneous infusion (i.e., under the skin) of immunoglobulin to manage his condition, which helps him stay healthy to compete at the professional level.

"Growing up I didn't know anyone else affected by primary immunodeficiency," said Carl, who was diagnosed with PI at a year old. "For this reason, I am encouraging everyone affected by PI to visit www.IamaChamPIon.com and post their 'ChamPIon' story. Collectively, we can support and inspire each other to pursue our dreams." 

In addition to providing an outlet for people with PI to share their stories, the
