Ophthalmological Abnormalities in Hereditary Ichthyosis (ICHTYO-KERATO)

Background: Hereditary ichthyosis are rare genetic diseases characterized by an abnormal epithelial keratinization due to mutations in gene involved in skin barrier. Patients present with scales on the whole body. Recent classification basically distinguishes syndromic from non-syndromic forms. Ichthyoses are severe diseases with significant impact on quality of life, due ...

Fecal Bile Acids Fecal Short Chain Fatty Acids and the Intestinal Microbioita in Patients With IBS and Control Volunteers

There is emerging evidence that alterations in bile acids and SCFA associated with IBS could be associated with changes in the gut microbiota. In addition to modulating levels of intraluminal organic acids, it has been hypothesized that gut microbiota may alter local immune responses, modulate visceral pain responses, and impair ...

Gene Therapy for Netherton Syndrome

Netherton Syndrome is a serious skin disorder caused by damage in a gene called SPINK5. This gene controls the formation of a protein called LEKTI, which important for skin barrier function. LEKTI inhibits certain enzymes (serine proteinases) in the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis). The function of the serine ...

Integrative Approaches to Managing Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

This project will test the effectiveness of an integrative medicine approach in treating irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Over the course of 18 months, we will recruit 85 participants with IBS in New York City. These participants will be randomized to either a 4-week group-oriented treatment intervention incorporating a low FODMAP ...

Visceral Sensitivity in IBD (Irritable Bowel Disease) and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

Methods Sample collection in healthy subjects, IBD and IBS patients: biopsy of rectum and colon descendens blood sample collection collection of sample of nasal mucosa feces collection questionnaires rectal barostat sensitivity measurement transit measurement of colon MR scan of brain

Phase N/A

Confocal Laser Endomicroscopy in IBS Patients

This study will assess dynamic effects of two major antigens on the duodenal mucosa by confocal laser endomicroscopy (CLE). Patients will be blinded to the antigens used (wheat, yeast). Following CLE it is planned to have a cross over exclusion diet with/without the antigens including a washout phase. Furthermore, patients ...

Phase N/A

Measuring Nerve Activity in Small Human Intestinal Biopsies in IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)

Rectal biopsies from IBS patients or healthy subjects will be taken. Biopsies will be used for: the isolation of submucosal plexus to perform: 1.1 live nerve recordings and Calcium imaging; 1.2 immunohistochemistry; 1.3 mRNA (Messenger ribonucleic acids) isolation and real time PCR (Polymerase chain reaction); culturing biopsies On the basis ...

Asthma and Atopic Dermatitis Validation of PROMIS Pediatric Instruments

This study involves a series of research and development projects targeted at two of the most common chronic diseases affecting children: asthma and atopic dermatitis (AD, or eczema). The Investigators propose to directly validate patient-reported outcomes (PRO) measures in a large cohort of itch-specific pediatric skin conditions, with a primary ...

Phase N/A

A Multi-center Prospective Evaluation of Infants and Children With Congenital Ichthyosis

The investigators hypothesize that early complications and comorbidities in infants with congenital ichthyosis are genotype-dependent, such that clinical standards of care can be tailored to the genetic diagnoses. Definition of clinical groups based upon phenotype may also provide useful predictors of outcome. Information gained from this study will provide the ...

Phase N/A

A Safety and Tolerability Study of Topical PAT-001 in Congenital Ichthyosis

The management of CI is a life-long endeavor, which remains largely symptomatic (i.e., emollients with or without keratolytics agents) and commonly focused on reducing scaling and/or skin lubrication with both systemic and topical treatments. A first-line therapy includes hydration and lubrication accomplished by creams and ointments containing low concentrations of ...
