Screening for Dent Disease Mutations in Patients With Proteinuria
Trial status: Open for Enrollment
Why is this study being done?
During this study visit, the investigator will draw one tube, about two teaspoonfuls (1 to 1 ½ teaspoons for children), of blood from your arm to obtain white blood cells. These white blood cells will be used as a source of DNA for genetic testing. We will use the isolated DNA to try to identify the gene that is defective in Dent Disease by comparing it with the structure of genes in normal individuals, patients with Dent Disease, and family members for Dent Disease.
Who is eligible to participate?
- The patient has been diagnosed, or in the process of being diagnosed with Dent Disease.
- You have a family member diagnosed with Dent Disease.
