|Study Design:||Observational Model: Natural History|
|Study Start Date:||December 1998|
PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This is a genetics study. Blood samples are collected from patients and family members. DNA is extracted from the blood and used for genotypic analysis and linkage analysis.
Patients do not necessarily receive the results of the genetic testing and the results do not influence the type or duration of treatment.
