Hello, my name is Kris Hawley, I am a first year medical student
working
on a summer studentship researching Familial Idiopathic Pulmonary
Fibrosis.
I am looking for anyone who may be involved in work on this
disease, or
have patients with it.

The goals of my research are to:

1. Attempt to determine the national prevalence of FIPF in
Canada.  I
would be very interested in finding out the number of families
with this
disease, and if possible, to actually get in contact with these
families.

2.  As well, another goal is to collect blood samples from
affected
families in the hope of getting a large enough sample size to
begin the
search for the gene or genes responsible.

If anyone is currently doing any work in the area of FIPF,
particularly
linkage studies or other genetic studies or if you have any
information
to discuss about FIPF, I would be very interested to hear about
it.
I would also be interested to hear if anyone has any DNA samples
banked
already.
Thank you

Data on human markers can be obtained from GDB.  One mode of
access is their hypertext browser at:

http://gdbwww.gdb.org/gdbdoc/topq.html

All of the markers in the enquiry are present at this site.

Dear Carlo,
Looks like I must have opened up a large can of mosquitoes with
my inquiry
about HIV. I did appreciate some of the responses I received, and
I
especially appreciated your thoughtful observations in your
comments. The
messages from Dr. Kimberling and from Exmond Decruz are the type
of response
one would associate with a scientist that is interested in
sharing their
wealth of knowledge. As a scientist for almost 50 years, I can
assure you
the request was not made by a layman pushing quackery. Thank you
again for
your editorial integrity, and for the Hum-Molgen forum.

Kindest regards,
Claude Baker
