Whole Blood Specimen Collection From Pregnant Subjects

This sample collection protocol allows for the identification, recruitment, and participation in women who are pregnant and are known to: be at an increased risk for fetal genetic abnormalities be at increased risk for congenital fetal infection by virtue of being positive by initial screening tests, or are known to ...

Phase N/A

Establishment of a Parathyroid Tissue Bank

Fresh residual tissue samples will be obtained during parathyroid and/or pancreas tumor intervention (for pancreas tumor intervention in MEN1 patients with hyperparathyroidism and pancreatic lesions). In addition, outside paraffin tissue blocks or slides will be requested from patients presenting to MDACC, or to participating family members who have had prior ...

Phase N/A

Variables That Are Correlated to Developing Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN) and Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors (PNET)

Researchers aim to identify somatic mutations and inherited genetic variants which may help predict the development of PNET in patients with hyperparathyroidism.

Phase N/A

Comprehensive Data Collection and Follow-Up for Patients With Thyroid Parathyroid and Adrenal Disease

If participant or participant's child agrees to take part in this study, information from the medical record will be recorded and entered into a research database at MD Anderson. Researchers will use this data to learn more about participant's or participant's child's current or suspected illness, surgery, and/or recovery as ...

Phase N/A

Parathyroid Cancer Versus Atypical Parathyroid Neoplasm; Investigating Their Clinical Characteristics and Biological Behavior

Data between the years of 1/1/2002 and 12/31/2013 will be analyzed. The medical records of all adult patients that had a parathyroidectomy for primary PHPT in MD Anderson Cancer Center will be screened in order to identify patients that had a histopathological diagnosis of parathyroid carcinoma or atypical parathyroid neoplasm.

Phase N/A

Alterations in Muscle's Functional Characteristics After Parathyroid Surgery for Primary Hyperparathyroidism.

1.0 INTRODUCTION The association between parathyroidectomy and cardiovascular status improvement is still inconclusive. There is evidence to suggest that primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) is associated with hypertension, whereas few studies show that hypertension does not reverse after surgical care. Moreover, left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is considered to be linearly associated with ...

Phase N/A

Genetic Modifiers for 22q11.2 Syndrome

The purpose of the project is the determination of how the deletion of DNA from chromosome 22 at the q11.2 band causes the phenotypes observed in velo-cardio-facial syndrome (VCFS). In other words, the purpose remains genotype-to-phenotype matching. Current methods includes the use of whole genome chips and microarray analysis. Blood ...

Phase N/A

The Effect of Parathyroidectomy on Renal Function Endothelial Function and Blood Pressure

Secondary hyperparathyroidism (HPT) is a known complication of chronic renal failure. Elevated concentrations of parathyroid hormone (PTH) play a role not only in the pathogenesis of renal bone disease, but also in the development of cardiovascular risk factors such as disturbed lipid metabolism, glucose intolerance, and hypertension. HPT is also ...

Phase N/A

Pilot Study: Hypovitaminosis D Hyperparathyroidism and Hypomagnesemia in Patients With Congestive Heart Failure

People with heart failure may have low magnesium and low vitamin D levels. They may also have abnormally high levels of parathyroid hormones. Magnesium and vitamin D are important chemicals that are not routinely measured in blood tests. We are studying how many people with heart failure have low levels ...

Phase N/A

Genetics and Psychopathology in the 22q11 Deletion Syndrome

The study of genes that are implicated in various mental diseases is increasingly relevant. The association between a gene and a disease can provide valuable information on how the neurobiology of the brain is altered, by studying the function of the protein encoded by the gene. This information is important ...
