HUM-MOLGEN DIAGnostics/Clinical Research


Nail-Patella Syndrome

We have recently narrowed the candidate interval for the NPS gene but need more families to reduce it to a manageable size. If you know of any NPS families suitable for linkage studies, please let me know. In addition, we would like to have access to persons who appear to be the result of new mutations (and their parents, if possible). We have IRB approval for obtaining blood samples for genetic studies. Please reply directly to: Thanks for your help,
