|Brief Title ICMJE||Study of Dry Beriberi in Mayotte, Comoro Archipelago|
|Official Title ICMJE||Determination Study of Dry Beriberi in Patients Native to the Comoro Archipelago, in Mayotte (MABECO).|
The purpose of this study is to assess the existence of a genetic factor, suspected to be involved, aside from likely food deficiency contribution, in occurrence of dry beriberi, in patients who experienced dry beriberi and in a case group composed of 3 people, free from beriberi, within the same household.
A team of 2 investigators, a nurse and an investigator speaking French, Shibushi and Shimaore (3 languages in use in Mayotte), will visit exposed patients who agreed to participate to the study.
3 controls, fulfilling inclusion criteria, will be recruited within the household by drawing lots.
Clinical examination and food survey by means of a questionnaire will be performed.
Blood samples will be drawn to determine thiamine status, vitamin B1 dosage, erythrocyte transketolase activity and thiamine pyrophosphate effect, analysis will be performed by Biomnis laboratory in Lyon.
For the genetic study, 4 drops of blood will be put down on Whatman paper and sent to Dr Johannes COY in Darmstadt Germany, for DNA extraction and PCR screening for mutations.
|Study Type ICMJE||Observational|
|Study Design ICMJE||Observational Model: Case Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Target Follow-Up Duration||Not Provided|
|Biospecimen||Retention: Samples Without DNA
Blood samples drawn for thiamine status, vit B1 dosage will be centrifuged and a serum sample will be frozen at -20°C, transferred to Regional Hospital of Reunion Island - GHSR and retained in virology laboratory of Dr MICHAULT after end of study for further explorations on beriberi
|Sampling Method||Probability Sample|
Patients Native to the Comoro Archipelago (Grande Comore, Mayotte, Anjouan, Mohéli) fulfilling the clinical definition of the dry beriberi. 3 controls fullfilling inclusion criteria will be recruited within the houshold by drawing lots.among
