|Brief Title||Evaluation and Treatment of Skeletal Diseases|
|Official Title||Evaluation and Treatment of Bone and Mineral Disorders|
This study has four objectives: 1) to provide investigators the opportunity to study bone specimens from patients with various skeletal diseases; 2) to treat patients with skeletal diseases at the NIH; 3) to expose NIH trainees to certain skeletal diseases; and 4) to gain more knowledge about skeletal diseases and stimulate further study of bone biology.
Anyone with a disease that affects the skeleton may be eligible for this study.
All evaluations, tests, procedures and treatments given study participants are used in the standard care of skeletal diseases. No experimental evaluations or treatments are offered. Patient evaluations include a medical history, review of medical records and routine physical examination. Based on the findings, other procedures may be recommended, including blood tests, urine tests, and imaging tests, such as X-rays, bone densitometry, bone scan, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Bone specimens from participants will be collected for research use. Specimens will be obtained from bone removed during a patient s planned surgical procedure performed for medical care, or patients may be requested to have a bone biopsy removal of a small piece of bone tissue as part of the patient evaluation procedure.
Human diseases are commonly manifested in the skeletal system. The skeleton may be the primary or secondary target of the disease and the disease may be congenital or acquired. While understanding of the molecular and cellular biology of bone and mineral disorders has increased in the last several years, much remains to be understood about the underlying biology of the skeleton. The gaps in the understanding of skeletal biology are evident in the paucity of tissue-specific therapies for skeletal diseases.
Within this study, we plan to obtain tissue and clinical specimens from outside institutions as well as to evaluate subjects with bone and mineral disorders at the NIH Clinical Center. Subjects will undergo clinically indicated testing and possibly receive treatment, which will be limited to therapies based on the best professional judgment of the investigators and treatment with medications commercially available under FDA law.
The objectives of this protocol are to:
