|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00466375|
Recruitment Status : Terminated
First Posted : April 27, 2007
Last Update Posted : August 29, 2017
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment|
|Hemangioma, Vascular Anomalies||Genetic: Cheek cell samples or blood sample (4mL) Genetic: Cheek cell sample or blood sample (4mL)|
WHAT IS INVOLVED IN THE RESEARCH STUDY?
- Buccal smear (cheek cells) or small blood sample (4 mL or 1 teaspoon) from child being seen in the Dermatology clinic having infantile hemangioma or vascular anomaly
- Buccal smear (cheek cells) or small blood sample (4 mL or 1 teaspoon) from parents of child
If you and your child agree to be in this study, the following will happen:
- Informed consent and permission to use or disclose your/your child's health information for research purposes will be obtained by Dr. Drolet, the principal investigator, or her research team. You will receive a copy of this consent form.
- A buccal swab or blood sample will be obtained from you and your child; buccal sampling involves rubbing the inside of your cheek and removing cells to perform a genetic test called "Genomewide Association (GWA).
We expect you and your child to be involved in this study until you and your child have the genetic testing performed.
