Found (7) clinical trials

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 ...

Yellow Fever Vaccine in Patients With Rheumatic Diseases

According to World Health Organization (WHO), since December 2016, Brazil is showing a significant increase in cases of yellow fever in humans. In view of this, vaccination is suitable for residents and travelers to the risk area. However, for immunosuppressed patients there is a formal recommendation not to vaccinate with ...

The Genetic Basis of Acquired Heart Disease in Africa

Recent advances in genomic techniques are making possible a new wave of genetic discovery in many complex diseases. However, the genetic risk factors for two forms of acquired heart disease that are particularly common in Africa - rheumatic heart disease (RHD) and endomyocardial fibrosis (EMF) remains unknown. In this application, ...

RhEumatiC Heart diseAse Genetics

There are an estimated 2.4 million children between 5 and 14 years of age affected by RF and/or RHD in developing countries of the world, approximately one million of whom live in sub-Saharan Africa (>40%) (1). A systematic review of prevalence studies found exceptionally high rates of RHD in sub-Saharan ...

Phenomics in Autoimmune and Inflammatory Diseases

The family of inflammatory/autoimmune systemic diseases (IAD) represents a large group of human diseases. For most if not all of these IAD, the pathophysiological processes or exact causes remain poorly understood. Progresses in molecular understanding of these IAD have led to realize that these are not two distinct categories of ...

Rheumatic Heart Disease School Project

Background Acute rheumatic Fever (ARF) results from an autoimmune response due to molecular mimicry between the M-protein on the group A -hemolytic streptococci (GABHS) cell membrane and cardiac myosin, and may lead through recurrent or sustained inflammation to Rheumatic Heart Disease (RHD) (1). RHD is reported to affect over 15 ...
