Welcome to the Pseudo Obstruction Research Trust (P.O.R.T.) Website. P.O.R.T. was formed in February 2006 by two families who have children who have died from Chronic Intestinal Pseudo-obstruction (C.I.P.O.) or are still suffering from this illness. The aim of the charity is to fund research into C.I.P.O. and raise public and professional awareness into this serious and sometimes fatal illness. With £320,000 of research and equipment funded so far, we need support to raise a minimum of £50,000 per year to fund this research.
