    Computed Tomography (CT) Induced Double-Stranded DNA Breaks Formation and Subsequent Repair as a Marker of Radiation Sensitivity

    • Conditions: Adult Studies, Human Genetics, Other
    • Gender: Female, Male

    People with certain genetic or inherited conditions are more sensitive to radiation than unaffected people. We want to see if we can use a special blood test, drawn after a CT scan, which is a specialized type of X-ray that uses a very small dose of radiation, to figure out which people are special...More

    Screening Protocol for Genetic Diseases of Lymphocyte Homeostasis and Programmed Cell Death

    • Conditions: Cancer - Immune Deficiency and Histiocytosis, Human Genetics
    • Gender: Female, Male

    The purpose of this protocol is to find the biochemical and genetic causes of inherited immune diseases affecting lymphocytes. A second purpose is to develop new knowledge which will help research doctors find better ways to prevent, diagnosis, and treat these inherited immune diseases. ...More

    SBDS Protein Expression in Peripheral Blood Leukocytes

    • Conditions: Cancer - Immune Deficiency and Histiocytosis, Human Genetics
    • Gender: Female, Male

    Shwachman-Diamond syndrome (SDS) is a rare condition which is usually diagnosed in infancy or early childhood. It can affect a wide range of organs but most commonly the digestion and the blood system are involved. Bone abnormalities and poor growth are also often seen in SDS patients. Researchers ...More

    A Computer Survey and Interview Study: Health and Pain in Children with JIA or Chronic Pain conditions (PROMIS)

    • Conditions: Other
    • Gender: Female, Male

    The long-term purpose of this study is to develop a computerized test to help doctors and researchers better measure how a child’s health makes him/her feel and how it affects what he/she does at home and at school.  By participating in this study, you will be helping researchers to determine the b...More
