Disease Natural History and Biomarkers of SPG3A SPG4A and SPG31

The Neurogenetics Branch (NGB) within the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) is conducting a study to evaluate patients with hereditary spastic paraplegia types 3A, 4 and 31. The objective of this study is to understand disease progression in these closely related forms of hereditary spastic paraplegia using ...

Phase N/A

Cell Collection to Study Eye Diseases

This study will establish a repository of biospecimens to generate induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, which will be used to determine molecular mechanisms for potentially blinding eye diseases including but not limited to: Best Vitelliform Dystrophy (Best Disease); Late-Onset Retinal Degeneration (L-ORD); Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD); Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA); ...

Phase N/A

Retinitis Pigmentosa Clinical Measures and Repeatability Testing of Potential Outcome Measures

Objective: The objective of this study is to investigate the nature of photoreceptor dysfunction in retinitis pigmentosa (RP) patients using focal static and kinetic psychophysical tests to develop functional outcome measures for the clinical trial study in RP. Correlation of novel spatial functional maps with other functional measures (such as ...

Phase N/A

Clinical Evaluation of Patients With X-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa (XLRP)

Males with a clinical diagnosis of X-linked retinitis pigmentosa (XLRP) caused by RPGR-ORF15 mutations will be asked to provide informed consent and will have a single blood or saliva sample obtained for DNA sequence analysis of genes known to cause XLRP, including the RPGR-ORF15 gene. All participants will be informed ...

Phase N/A

Rod and Cone Mediated Function in Retinal Disease

Objective: The objective of this protocol is to investigate local changes in rod and cone photoreceptor function across the retina in healthy volunteers and participants with retinal disease. Study Population: Up to 120 healthy volunteers and 250 participants, age five or older, with retinal disease. Design: This single-center, observational, case-control ...

Phase N/A

Retinal Imaging in Patients With Inherited Retinal Degenerations

Retinal degenerations are a group of inherited diseases that result in progressive death of the vision cells, or photoreceptors. Currently there is no treatment or cure for any of these diseases and they ultimately cause blindness in affected patients. We propose to investigate the structure and function of the human ...

Phase N/A

Rare Disease Patient Registry & Natural History Study - Coordination of Rare Diseases at Sanford

CoRDS collects contact, sociodemographic and health information about participants. This information is entered into CoRDS and linked to a unique coded identifier. Below are some examples of information requested on the Questionnaire that will be entered into CoRDS: Contact information: Name, Mailing Address, Phone Number, Email Address Sociodemographic information: Date ...

Phase N/A

High Resolution Retinal Imaging

Studying the morphology and function of the normal and diseased retina in vivo is needed for advancing the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of retinal disease. This protocol uses an adaptive optics scanning laser ophthalmoscope (AOSLO) to image the normal and diseased retina with individual cellular resolution non-invasively. The primary objective ...

Phase N/A

Natural History Study of Patients With X-linked Retinal Dystrophy Associated With Mutations in Retinitis Pigmentosa GTPase Regulator (RPGR)

X-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa (XLRP) is a severe form of RP with early onset of nyctalopia and progression to legal blindness by the 3rd to 4th decade. Most affected males show symptomatic night blindness before the age of 10 years, are often myopic and show fundus abnormalities and ERG changes in ...

Phase N/A

Phenotype Correlates Genotype of Inherited Retina Dystrophies Retinitis Pigmentosa Con>Rod Dystrophies.

Patients with retina dystrophies (retinitis pigmentosa, cone>rods dystrophies, Usher and syndromic, etc.) will be correlated with genotype and validate inheritance mode by segregation analysis. Ocular exam of proband, parents and two unaffected siblings is needed, retina analysis, autofluorescence and ocular coherence tomography (OCT) are needed as well as family map. ...
