Researchers at Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) in Claremont, California, are studying serum samples in an attempt to identify and characterize new diagnostic biomarkers of cells, proteins and or nucleic acids of rare diseases. The study is funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
The National Organization of Rare Disorders (NORD) is a partner and plays and advisory role. The project is designed to provide a better understanding of the similarities and differences in patients of rare disease populations and to ultimately help select specific forms of treatment. Healthy family members may participate as part of the control group.
At this time, the study is recruiting Behcet's patients and their healthy family members living in the United States. Serum samples from Behcet's patients will be obtained during the course of the patient's next routine lab work procedures as scheduled through their primary physician. The samples will then be sent to the KGI lab in California, at no cost to patients.
I am not sure if we have anyone here on the forum from America but obviously this would benefit us all in the future if they can find a diagnostic test for behcets.
