The goals of this study are to replicate previous findings of genetic predictors of response to clozapine and other antipsychotic drugs.
Increase surveillance for LYNCH Syndrome
The goal of this research study is to test the effects of online genetic education alone or in combination with telephone genetic counseling in order to compare the two methods and the stress a person feels about their risk of cancer. Researchers also want to learn how these strategies may improve participant's understanding of genetics, participant's ability to complete a quiz about genetics, and participant's quality of life.
To evaluate an alternative clinical genetics cancer care delivery model, using non-genetic providers to introduce and order genetic testing. 250 prostate and 250 pancreatic patients will be recruiting. They will undergo genetic testing and complete study questionnaires. Results from this pilot study will be used to inform the strategies used by the CREP CGS and GI/GU physicians to deliver genetic testing and return genetic risk information to patients with prostate or pancreati...
Genetic diagnosis for neonates suffering from epilepsy has important implications for treatment, prognosis, and development of precision medicine strategies. Investigator performed exome sequencing (ES) or targeted sequencing on neonates with seizure onset within the first month of life. Investigator subgrouped our patients based on the onset age of seizure into neonatal and before 1 year (1-12 months), to compare the clinical and genetic features and treatment strategies.
The oculocutaneous albinism is an autosomal recessive condition associated with mutations in 4 genes. In 20% of patients no mutation is identified. The optimization of genetic analysis methods and the search for new genes involved will help improve the diagnosis in these patients.
An early diagnosis of congenital malformations and suspected genetic conditions in critically ill infants is essential to perform specific adapted care, prevention, and give proper genetic counseling. However, etiologies are various and each of them is individually very rare. Thanks to next-generation sequencing technologies, diagnosis time frames have drastically decreased and the investigators have observed an increase in diagnosis yields. This study aims to evaluate the fea...
This research trial studies how well Oncology Research Information Exchange Network (ORIEN) works in improving genetic screening rate in patients with cancer. Implementation of Progeny Genetic Pedigree and Family History Questionnaire software across all ORIEN member institutions may add value and utility for recognizing and caring for patients with an inherited susceptibility to cancer.
Pragmatic research study to determine which of the two standard syncope therapies yields a faster path to diagnosis- head up tilt (HUT) table or implantable loop recorder (ILR).
RATIONALE: A study that evaluates the support of a decision guide used together with genetic counseling may improve communication between mothers undergoing BRCA1/2 testing and their minor-age children. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying standard genetic counseling given together with a decision guide to see how well it works compared with genetic counseling alone in improving communication between mothers undergoing BRCA1/2 testing and their minor-age ...
The purpose of this RCT which will be performed in 60 healthy adults is I. To assess the training effects of 8 weeks of isometric handgrip exercise on BP; and to test whether it yields at least similar effects on BP compared to current exercise recommendations. II. To assess whether isometric handgrip training yields larger BP reductions beyond the supervised training period at 6 months of follow-up. III. To determine whether changes in BP following acute exercise and chronic...
search for a genetic cause of vascular endofibrose
Researchers are trying to learn more about the prevalence of genetic mutations in women who are at intermediate/high risk of breast cancer and how that information my assist providers in improving screening and preventative options.
The project aims to improve the understanding of a significant group of rare diseases both from a genetic/diagnostic and clinical/experimental point of view and aims to develop one or more diagnostic protocols. The study will be conducted through the application of complementary experimental strategies, ranging from the clinical, genetic and molecular characterization of the pathology to the search for rare variants and the development of cellular disease models.
This is a prospective research registry and prospective genetic testing cohort study. The goal is to collect personal medical and cancer history data, family cancer data, exposure history, and biospecimens to support research focused on optimal genetic testing strategies for men with prostate cancer with the ultimate goal of informing national guidelines focused on genetic evaluation for prostate cancer.
This study is being done to better understand how genetic information related to drug dosing and use can affect medical care of patients. By doing this study, the investigators are developing and improving ways to incorporate information about drug related genetic variants into the medical record.
The purpose of this study is to identify clinical and genetic markers of ovarian aging. In this process, we will evaluate environmental factors that may affect fertility and the age at which fertility declines, and may influence the age at which women enter menopause. Wide variability exists between women both in the age at which menopause occurs and the rate of decline in oocyte number and reproductive capability. As the loss of ovarian function has profound impact on women...
The goal of this study is to better understand how clinicians give genetic risk information to patients from multi-ethnic groups and how patients understand this information and remember it and act upon it. In addition investigators want to know how to better communicate with patients about complex health issues across the health literacy divide and communication gap that exists between doctors and their patients.
This is a randomized, controlled study that will compare two medication adherence strategies in adults with moderate or severe persistent asthma as a method for improving or maintaining treatment adherence.
The combination of high blood pressure and having central obesity is an increasing important factor for heart disease in men and women. It can also lead to the early development of hardening of the arteries and increased risk of a stroke. This study will analyze patients' genetic make up to identify who may be at greater risk for heart disease and strokes in relationship to high blood pressure and central obesity.
Myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) is a group of clonal haematopoietic stem cell disorders characterized by ineffective haematopoiesis leading to cytopenia, with a significant risk of progression to acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). Progression to AML and resistance to hypomethylating agents (HMA) are important unmet clinical needs. The pathophysiology of MDS and its progression to AML involve cytogenetic, genetic and epigenetic aberrations, and hence better understanding of the molec...
This study is designed to determine whether meditation is beneficial for genetic counselors and genetic counseling students. The main goal is to see if meditation can help with professional well-being (burnout for genetic counselors, stress for genetic counseling students). The investigators will also explore whether meditation has other benefits for the genetic counseling profession.
Schistosomiasis is a flatworm transmitted from freshwater snails to humans in the tropics. In addition to this infectious disease, tropical developing countries are faced with malnutrition. We propose to alter pesticide and compost use to reduce schistosomiasis and maintain or even improve crop production.
The goal of the GENERATE study is to improve genetic testing and cancer prevention in family members of pancreatic cancer patients with identified genetic mutations (inherited changes). The study will measure how different methods of genetic education increase the rate of genetic testing in these families. This is an investigational study to measure the effects of two methods of genetic education. Participants may elect to undergo genetic testing as part of the study and will ...
