A Study of CCCTC-binding Factor (CTCF) in Infantile Hemangiomas

2014-08-27 03:19:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the genotype of CTCF, a proven transcription factor, in patients with infantile hemangiomas and to monitor tumor growth. The investigators aim to determine whether or not the CTCF genotype might serve as an early and reliable predictor of tumor growth.

Description

This study seeks to examine a potential relationship between CTCF genotype and hemangioma size and growth rate. In addition to the initial visit, patients will return to our clinic for evaluation at two weeks, one month, two months, six months, and one year. At each visit, patients' hemangiomas will be measured and photographed. At one point over the course of evaluation, a blood sample will be taken from each patient for evaluation of C/T polymorphism at CTCF binding site six.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A benign neoplasm of pneumocytes, cells of the PULMONARY ALVEOLI. Originally considered to be vascular in origin, it is now classified as an epithelial tumor with several elements, including solid cellular areas, papillary structure, sclerotic regions, and dilated blood-filled spaces resembling HEMANGIOMA.

A dull red, firm, dome-shaped hemangioma, sharply demarcated from surrounding skin, usually located on the head and neck, which grows rapidly and generally undergoes regression and involution without scarring. It is caused by proliferation of immature capillary vessels in active stroma, and is usually present at birth or occurs within the first two or three months of life. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A disorder of the skin, the oral mucosa, and the gingiva, that usually presents as a solitary polypoid capillary hemangioma often resulting from trauma. It is manifested as an inflammatory response with similar characteristics to those of a granuloma.

A vascular anomaly due to proliferation of BLOOD VESSELS that forms a tumor-like mass. The common types involve CAPILLARIES and VEINS. It can occur anywhere in the body but is most frequently noticed in the SKIN and SUBCUTANEOUS TISSUE. (from Stedman, 27th ed, 2000)

A congenital disorder that is characterized by a triad of capillary malformations (HEMANGIOMA), venous malformations (ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA), and soft tissue or bony hypertrophy of the limb. This syndrome is caused by mutations in the VG5Q gene which encodes a strong angiogenesis stimulator.
