Identifying Factors that Impact Growth in A-T

In collaboration with Valerie Natale, PhD of the Forgotten Diseases Research Foundation, the A-T Clinical Center at Johns Hopkins, funded by the A-T Children’s Project, is analyzing growth data for patients with A-T who have been followed over time to develop growth curves for A-T. The collaborators will then examine the effects of disease severity, feeding tube placement, chronic infections, lung disease and cancer on growth. In addition to helping assess an individual child, better disease-specific growth curves will be useful for evaluating the effects of clinical interventions and potential therapies.
