Complete DiGeorge anomaly (cDGA) is a congenital disorder characterized by athymia. Without successful treatment, children remain immunodeficient and usually die by age 2 years. In complete DiGeorge subjects, thymus transplantation with and without immunosuppression has resulted in diverse T cell development and good T cell function. The purpose of this Phase I/II study is to continue thymus transplantation safety and efficacy research for the treatment of complete DiGeorge anomaly. Until thymus transplantation is FDA approved as standard care for DiGeorge anomaly, research study participation is the only means by which a patient may have access to this potentially life-saving procedure.. This protocol includes 4 groups: one for subjects who do not require immunosuppression; and 3 immunosuppression groups for subjects with different T cell function levels to be suppressed adequately.. Eligible subjects undergo thymus transplantation and an ...

Complete DiGeorge anomaly is a congenital disorder characterized by athymia. Without successful treatment, children remain immunodeficient and usually die by age 2 years. In infants with complete DiGeorge anomaly and no T cells, thymus transplantation without immunosuppression resulted in diverse T cell development and good T cell function. Some infants with no thymus have some T cells that presumably developed extrathymically; these T cells can reject a thymus graft. The purpose of this study is to design better immunosuppression use for complete DiGeorge anomaly subjects who have some T cells and different T cell function levels. This protocol includes 3 immunosuppression regimens to allow subjects with different T cell function levels to be suppressed adequately.. DiGeorge infants who have successful thymus transplants but remain with hypoparathyroidism must go to the clinic for frequent calcium levels and to the hospital for calcium ...

Parathyroid and Thymus Transplantation in DiGeorge #931 - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov  Parathyroid and Thymus Transplantation in DiGeorge #931 - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Detailed: DiGeorge Syndrome is a complex of three problems, 1) cardiac defects, 2) parathyroid deficiency, and 3) absence of the thymus, resulting in profound T-cell deficiency. There is a spectrum of disease in DiGeorge syndrome with respect to all three defects. There is no safe and effective treatment for DiGeorge Syndrome and most patients die by the age of two. For patients with a severe T cell defect, the PI has shown that thymus transplantation is safe and efficacious under other clinical protocols. Research subjects with complete typical and atypical DiGeorge syndrome were eligible for this study. Subjects with athymia and profound hypoparathyroidism were eligible for parental parathyroid transplantation in this protocol. DiGeorge syndrome infants, who have successful thymus transplants but have hypoparathyroidism, must go to the ...

The severity level of DiGeorge syndrome including the associated health complications tend to differ from one patient to another. A majority of the affected individuals have to seek treatment from different types of specialists. Initially, DiGeorge syndrome was referred to by different names such as velocardiofacial syndrome, etc., before the cause was identified as an error occurring in chromosome 22. One may note that despite the fact that the term ''22q11.2 deletion syndrome'' is often used in the current circumstance and which undoubtedly describes the condition, the older names of the condition are also recognized and used today.. ...

DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) is one of several syndromes associated with deletions within the proximal long-arm of chromosome 22. The region of chromosome 22q11 responsible for the haploinsufficiency syndromes (the DiGeorge Critical Region or DGCR) has been mapped using RFLPs, quantitative Southern blotting and FISH. Similar deletions are seen in the velo-cardio-facial syndrome (VCFS) and familial congenital heart defects. It is not known whether the phenotypic spectrum is the result of the hemizygosity of one gene or whether it is a consequence of contiguous genes being deleted. However, the majority of patients have a large (| = 2Mb deletion). In this paper we report the isolation of a gene, lab name T10, encoding a serine/threonine rich protein of unknown function which maps to the commonly deleted region of chromosome 22q11. Studies in the mouse indicate that it maps to MMU16 and is expressed during early ...

British Library EThOS: Genomic and transcriptomic approaches to pathways affected in DiGeorge syndrome  British Library EThOS: Genomic and transcriptomic approaches to pathways affected in DiGeorge syndrome
This thesis describes the identification and characterisation of genes important in development of the pharyngeal apparatus and heart, the major structures affected in DiGeorge syndrome (DGS). DGS is characterised by craniofacial, cardiovascular, thymus and parathyroid defects. It is most commonly caused by heterozygous deletion of a 3Mb region of chromosome 22ql 1 encompassing at least 30 genes. Haploinsufficiency of the TBX1 transcription factor is considered to be the major underlying cause of this syndrome. Animal models of DiGeorge syndrome have demonstrated the importance of Tbxl in pharyngeal and heart development and therefore, identifying the downstream targets of Tbxl is of vital importance in understanding the development of these systems. This project was aimed at identifying cell autonomous effects of Tbxl by isolating Tbxl-lacZ expressing cells and comparing the gene expression profiles of Tbxl null and ...

Molecular genetic study of the frequency of monosomy 22q11 in DiGeorge syndrome. - Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences  Molecular genetic study of the frequency of monosomy 22q11 in DiGeorge syndrome. - Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences
It is well established that DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) may be associated with monosomy of 22q11-pter. More recently, DNA probes have been used to detect hemizygosity for this region in patients with no visible karyotypic abnormality. However, DGS has also been described in cases where the cytogenetic abnormality does not involve 22q11; for instance, four cases of 10p- have been reported. In this study we have prospectively analyzed patients, by using DNA markers from 22q11, to assess the frequency of 22q11 rearrangements in DGS. Twenty-one of 22 cases had demonstrable hemizygosity for 22q11. Cytogenetic analysis had identified interstitial deletion in 6 of 16 cases tested; in 6 other cases no karyotype was available. When these results are combined with those from our previous studies, 33 of 35 DGS patients had chromosome 22q11 deletions detectable by DNA probes.

Chromosome 22q11.2 heterozygous deletions cause the most common deletion syndrome, including the DiGeorge syndrome phenotype. Using a mouse model of this deletion (named Df1) we show that the aortic arch patterning defects that occur in heterozygously deleted mice (Df1/+) are associated with a differentiation impairment of vascular smooth muscle in the 4th pharyngeal arch arteries (PAAs) during early embryogenesis. Using molecular markers for neural crest, endothelial cells and vascular smooth muscle, we show that cardiac neural crest migration into the 4th arch and initial formation of the 4th PAAs are apparently normal in Df1/+ embryos, but affected vessels are growth-impaired and do not acquire vascular smooth muscle. As in humans, not all deleted mice present with cardiovascular defects at birth. However, we found, unexpectedly, that all Df1/+ embryos have abnormally small 4th PAAs during early embryogenesis. Many embryos later overcome this early ...

Validation study and pilot projects in several European countries demonstrated highest test accuracies for the detection of the 22q11 deletion syndrome. Konstanz, January 18, 2016 - PrenaTest®, Europe's first NIPT, now also routinely tests for the DiGeorge syndrome, also known as 22q11 deletion syndrome. By adding this microdeletion as the most common genetic microdeletion syndrome occurring in about one out of 3,000 births, LifeCodexx now offers a non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) with one of the largest test panels available today at highest accuracy.. For validation of the examination method data from synthetic pooled DNA samples as well as from several blood samples from pregnant women, whose unborn children had a 22q11.2 microdeletion, were examined. In all cases the microdeletion was correctly detected without any false-positive or false-negative results. Starting May 2016, the results of the validation study were ...
