The Genetics of Chiari Type I Malformation
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||chiari type i malformation|
|Start date||June 2009|
|End date||August 2020|
|Trial size||2000 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01060800, Pro00011231|
Duke University Medical Center is investigating the hereditary basis of Chiari type I malformations with or without syringomyelia (CM1/S). Our research is aimed at learning if CM1/S is indeed caused by factors inherited through the family and, if so, which genes are involved.
Genetic factors contributing to Chiari Type I malformation
