Medical genetics at a glance by D. J Pritchard( Book )
38 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An introduction and revision text covering the core principles of cell biology and genetics, this title covers developmental biology, medical genetics and the clinical application of genetics
Human genetics and genomics by Bruce R Korf( Book )

This book merges basic genetic principles with clinical applications of genetics in medical practice. By presenting the core concepts of human genetics while maintaining an emphasis on a problem-based learning and clinical approach. This edition acts both as a textbook for genetics courses, and a bridge into the clinical environment. Features include enhanced emphasis on microbiology content, a chapter devoted to laboratory techniques, and a vast array of new pedagogy

Emery and Rimoin's principles and practice of medical genetics by David L Rimoin( )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
For decades, Emery & Rimoin's Principles and Practice of Medical Genetics has provided the ultimate source for practicing clinicians to learn how the study of genetics can be integrated into practice. With advances in high-throughput technologies propelling the closer integration of lab and clinical work, this sixth edition bridges the gap between high-level molecular genetics and individual application. This comprehensive yet practical resource emphasizes theory and research fundamentals related to applications of medical genetics across the full spectrum of inherited disorders
Neurofibromatosis : a handbook for patients, families, and health-care professionals by Bruce R Korf( Book )
9 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What little is known about the rare genetic disease popularly but wrongly associated with The Elephant Man, is presented in terms that people with no medical training can decipher, and clinicians can relate to their knowledge. Focuses on the care of the patient with any of a wide range of symptoms, while waiting for the molecular geneticists to track down the gene and figure out how it works
Emery and Rimoin's essential medical genetics by David L Rimoin( )
9 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Provides scientific fundamentals, full spectrum discussion of major inherited disorders, and actionable therapies. Clinically oriented information is supported by concise descriptions of the principles of genetics, research approaches, and analytics to provide advanced diagnosis, prevention and treatment of human disease

L'enfant et la neurofibromatose 1 by Bruce R Korf( Book )

Natural History of Plexiform Neurofibromas in NF1 ( )
3 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The three major goals of this study were to: (1) validate volumetric MRI in the measurement of plexiform neurofibromas; (2) obtain a body of normative data on the growth rate of plexiform neurofibromas; and (3) develop an infrastructure to support future clinical trials. Although the first aim will not be fully achieved until all of the data are available and analyzed, we have made significant progress by demonstrating tumor volumes can be reliably measured by multiple observers. The reproducibility study has been completed and submitted for publication. Regarding the second aim, this year saw a continued increase in patient enrollment mainly due to the addition of three new clinical sites. Most plexiform neurofibromas have been imaged only once or twice, but we have included data representing longitudinal follow-up of one tumor as an example of the type of growth data we are hoping to collect. Finally, with respect to building infrastructure, we have a stable group of participating centers and have streamlined the process of signing on new centers. We have also worked collaboratively with the group at the National Cancer Institute who is running a clinical trial of a farnesyl protein transferase to coordinate the natural history study with this clinical trial. The study got off to a slow start due to administrative problems related to the process of obtaining IRB approval for centers but data is now steadily accumulating, making it clear that the objectives of the study will be achieved
Neurofibromatosis ( Book )
1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jongerengids over neurofibromatose by Bruce R Korf( Book )
1 edition published in 1997 in Dutch and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Natural History of Plexiform Neurofibromas in NF1 ( )
2 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The overall goal of this study is to use volumetric MRI to define the natural history of untreated plexiform neurofibromas in patients with NF1. Recruitment has been completed including patients with head and neck or trunk and extremity plexiform neurofibromas with serial MRI studies done over a three year period. Volumetric analysis is nearly completed delayed by a two year hiatus in the study when the PI moved from Boston to Birmingham. In addition to completing the volumetric analysis we plan to validate the volumetric data by complete review of all MRIs done on all patients and use of two independent approaches to volumetric analysis. This will insure that data on tumor volumes is reliable given that several years have elapsed between initial and final studies. It will also link the data in the present study to two ongoing initiatives: the NF Consortium which is conducting clinical trials and the Children's Tumor Foundation funded plexiform neurofibroma imaging repository

Natural History of Plexiform Neurofibromas in NF1 ( )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This report marks the completion of the first year of the project Natural History of Plexiform Neurofibromas in NF1'. The goals of the project are to test the utility of volumetric MRI in the measurement of plexiform neurofibromas, to use this approach to develop a body of normative data on the growth of plexiform neurofibromas, and to establish an infrastructure including radiology, statistical analysis, clinical database, tissue bank, and pathology review that will facilitate future clinical trials. This first year was devoted to developing the infrastructure of the project and initiating subject recruitment. Major accomplishments include holding a conference at the Banbury Center at which the protocol was refined, establishing MRI data transfer between the participating centers and the radiology analysis facility at WorldCare, creation of the clinical data entry forms, and establishing the communications between the participating centers and the coordinating center in Boston. Patient recruitment has begun, but has been delayed because of a longer than anticipated time required for the approval by the army IRB of the local informed consents. This process is nearing completion, and it is anticipated that subject recruitment will be complete within an additional six months
NF Consortium Development Site: University of Alabama at Birmingham ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
University of Alabama at Birmingham has worked together with eight other consortium development sites and the Consortium Operations Center to develop the approach to develop innovative biologically based therapeutics for NF1 and to implement sequential hypothesis driven translation trials for multiple NF1 clinical manifestations. Dr. Korf has served as co chair of the plexiform and other neurofibromas committee as well as chair of the publications committee. In addition, he serves as a member of the Operations Center. Several other UAB faculty serve on additional committees (Dr. Amy Theos plexiform and other neurofibromas committee; Dr. Joseph Pressy MPNST committee; Dr. Alyssa Reddy visual pathway and other intracranial gliomas committee; Dr. Joseph Ackerson neurocognitive intervention committee). These efforts resulted in submission of a grant proposal to establish the NF1 Research Consortium to the Department of Defense in August 2006
