Rheumatic Fever Genetic Studies

Brief description of study

Rheumatic Fever Genetic Studies

Detailed Study Description

For the past 30 years, the laboratory of Clinical Microbiology/Immunology at The Rockefeller University has been studying Rheumatic Fever.

For over one hundred years, the question of whether this disease has a genetic basis remains unresolved. In order to examine this question, we would like to contact the following:

  • Families where more than one person has had Rheumatic Fever
  • Families where several people in more than one generation have had Rheumatic Fever.
  • Twins who both have had Rheumatic Fever
  • Twins where only one twin has had Rheumatic Fever

Clinical Study Identifier: TX29
