Neurofibromatosis : a handbook for patients, families, and health-care professionals by Bruce R Korf( Book )

8 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and held by 228 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
Principles and practice of medical genetics by David L Rimoin( Book )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades, Emery and 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. Developed in parallel to the sixth edition, and featuring 174 original contributions from the many authors of the full set, this one volume work expertly condenses and synthesizes the most clinically relevant content, for convenient desk reference. Helping to bridge the gap between high-level molecular genetics and individual application, it follows the multi-volume set in encompassing scientific fundamentals, full spectrum discussion of major inherited disorderd, and actionable therapies

Natural History of Plexiform Neurofibromas in NF1( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 4 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
Emery and Rimoin's principles and practice of medical genetics by Alan E. H Emery( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For decades, Emery and 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 6e 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. Clinically oriented information is supported by expanded sections on basic principles of genetics, research approaches, and analytics to embrace the evolving population of students, researchers, and practitioners who are integrating their work to provide advanced diagnosis, prevention and treatment of human disease. Over 250 of the world's most trusted authorities in medical genetics will contribute to the new release of the revised electronic edition of the work. Regular updates and the integration of teaching tools such as videos and graphics will distinguish this work from the competition. Links to sites such as Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) and similar sites that provide up-to-date information on human genes and genetic phenotypes will make this product the ultimate source for students, researchers, and practitioners alike."--Publisher's website

Natural History of Plexiform Neurofibromas in NF1. Addendum( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The overall goal of this study was to use volumetric MRI to define the natural history of untreated plexiform neurofibromas in patients with NF1. MRIs were obtained from patients with untreated plexiform neurofibromas and sent to a central location for volumetric analysis. Following the initial analysis using a manual method to delineate tumor boundaries, data were reanalyzed using two separate approaches to semi-automated analysis. Overall, most tumors, regardless of body site, remained stable in size during the course of study. There was a trend towards more rapid growth in younger patients, however. In addition, the imaging characteristics of superficial and abdominal plexiform neurofibromas have been described. The results have demonstrated that volumetric MRI provides a reproducible and practical approach to measurement of the growth of plexiform neurofibromas. This approach is now the standard approach in use to measure response of plexiform neurofibromas to therapy, including in the clinical trials being conducted by the NF Consortium
NF Consortium Development Site: University of Alabama at Birmingham( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries 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
