In 2005, The University of Alabama at Birmingham established a NIDDK-funded, interdisciplinary center of excellence in PKD-related research, with specific emphasis on recessive PKD. In the previous Core Center award period, we developed a Core Resource to capture clinical and mutational data for ARPKD patients ("Core A: ARPKD Clinical and Genetic Resource", NCT00575705). However, studies in the last several years have demonstrated that ARPKD and other single gene disorders characterized by renal cystic disease and extra-renal phenotypes share numerous pathogenic features. In the current competitively- renewed Center, we have expanded this Core resource to include other hepato/renal fibrocystic diseases.
Goals for the Core A: The Hepato/Renal Fibrocystic Diseases Translational Resource are:
- Clinical Database:
• Expand our comprehensive Clinical Database to include information from all patients who meet the inclusion criteria for hepato/renal fibrocystic diseases.
- Mutational Database:
Test children with ARPKD and other hepato/renal fibrocystic disease to identify genetic mutations, establish a DNA bank for patients with hepato/renal fibrocystic diseases and develop a Mutational Database. This Database will be capable of linking clinical and mutational information via a unique identifier in a searchable format to facilitate genetic research (e.g. genotype-phenotype correlations, new disease gene studies, and modifier gene studies), translational studies, and clinical trials.
3- Tissue Resource:
Much of the research that is performed on diseases of the kidney, including recessive genetic diseases, requires human tissue from both affected as well as non-affected (controls) individuals. In this Core Resource, we are establishing an independent tissue resource which would supply investigators throughout North America with samples of hepato/renal fibrocystic disease affected tissues for studies of these disorders.
4- Educational Resource:
- Expand our multi-media, web-based resource to provide a reliable up-to-date, and comprehensive informational resource for ARPKD and Hepato/Renal Diseases families, their physicians, and genetic counselors.

- Core A: The Hepato/Renal Fibrocystic Diseases Translational Resource (Hepato/Renal Fibrocystic Diseases Core Center (UAB HRFDCC)) [ Time Frame: five years ]
Core A: The Hepato/Renal Fibrocystic Diseases Translational Resource:
The aims of this Core are:
- Expand our current clinical and mutational database and establish a DNA bank
- Establish a national tissue repository for hepato/renal fibrocystic diseases
- Broaden the portfolio of educational tools developed for physicians and patients to encompass the hepato/renal fibrocystic diseases spectrum of disorders.
A unique aspect of this Core is that it builds on established clinical, genotyping, and educational programs and through the P30 mechanism will make these data/resources available to the broader community of interested investigators
