Clinical and Molecular Study of CHARGE Syndrom (CHARGE)

The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. Identifier: NCT03186144
Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : June 14, 2017

Poitiers University Hospital

Brief Summary:
  1. Clinical description of a French cohort of patients with CHARGE syndrome.
  2. Search any phenotype-genotype correlation in typical, atypical or incomplete form of the syndrome
  3. Using Next generation Sequencing, try to identify other genes involved in this syndrome, as the CHD7 gene is involved in only 40-60% of cases
