Tuberous Sclerosis Linkage Study:— Call for Patients.—
We are involved in a large collaborative linkage study whose goal is to map the tuberous sclerosis gene. We would like to obtain blood samples for DNA analysis from two- and three-generation pedigrees with at least two individuals affected with tuberous sclerosis. This study was initiated in cooperation with the National Tuberous Sclerosis Association. If you are aware of any families that fit the above criteria and that would be interested in participating in this study, please have them contact M. Priscilla Short, MD, Molecular Neurogenetics, Massachusetts General Hospital East, 6th Floor W, 149 13th St, Charlestown, MA 02129; (617) 726-5732, or Ann F. Jewell, MS, Genetics Counselor, Neurogenetics Unit, Research No. 3, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA 02114; (617) 726-6845.
A medical education program, entitled "Pediatric Dermatology for the Primary Care Physician," will be held at the Union Square Holiday
