This study will explore the causes and eye problems of X-linked juvenile retinoschisis (XLRS), an inherited disease that causes vision loss primarily in young males. The vision loss, which worsens over time, is a result of schisis, or splitting, of the layers of the retina (tissue that lines the back of the eye). A better understanding of why and how XLRS develops might lead to improved treatments.
Patients 9 months of age and older with XLRS and females who are suspected carriers of the gene responsible for the disease (such as the mother of the patient) may be eligible for this study. Other family members of patients also may be enrolled.
Patients will undergo the following tests and procedures:
Family members will provide a blood sample for genetic study.
The overall goal of this protocol is to better understand the etiology of XLRS disease to facilitate further research to identify a potential treatment for the disease. The specific primary objectives of this study are to:
With the opportunity to study the genotypes and phenotypes of many affected males and the genotype of family members, a secondary objective of this study will be to develop a detailed pedigree for affected families. This information may be used to develop preliminary risk estimates for potential carrier females.
Up to 500 participants may enroll in this study. A minimum of 150 of participants are expected to be males diagnosed with X-Linked Retinoschisis. Participants may be recruited from the NIH and also from participating off-site locations. The quality of the genetic observation is directly proportional to the number of affected individuals and genetically-different families enrolled.
This natural history, multi-center, registry study to enroll males diagnosed with X-Linked Retinoschisis and the family members of affected individuals. Onsite affected males will undergo clinical examination and have their blood drawn for genotyping. Onsite unaffected participants will undergo eye examinations. Blood may also be drawn from the onsite unaffected participants but this is not required. Sites outside of NIH are participating as referral centers to accumulate the cohort. Offsite affected male participants will forward a blood sample and records from previous eye examinations to the NEI for review and analysis. Offsite unaffected participants will forward records from previous eye examinations and may provide a blood sample although this is not required.
The primary outcome is the categorization of the proband s genotype and phenotype and determination of the relationship between the two.
