Fabry : National Initiative of Screening (FIND)

This study has been completed.

University Hospital, Clermont-Ferrand Identifier:

Last verified: December 2009

Fabry disease is a genetic disease due to an enzymatic deficit. A screening of this disease allows patients to benefit from an enzyme replacement therapy and prevent the occurrence of life threatening manifestations such as an ischemic stroke.

The purpose of the study is to determinate the prevalence of Fabry disease in a population of male patients hospitalized for an ischemic stroke.

This study, with a screening of Fabry disease, allows the patients to make a precise diagnosis of their ischemic stroke and to facilitate the screening of the other members at the facility.

Condition Intervention
Ischemic Stroke Hospitalized Procedure: Blood sample

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Participant)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: National, Multicenter, Prospective Study of Screening of Fabry Disease in a Population of Men Over 28 Days Old and Less Than 55 Years, Hospitalized for an Ischemic Stroke.
