Patients with a Cystinosis disease or high-grade suspicion for Cystinosis disease
- Development of a new MS-based biomarker for the early and sensitive diagnosis of Cystinosis disease from the blood [ Time Frame: 24 months ]New methods, like mass-spectrometry give a good chance to characterize specific metabolic alterations in the blood of affected patients that allow diagnosing in the future the disease earlier, with a higher sensitivity and specificity.
- Testing for clinical robustness, specificity and long-term stability of the biomarker [ Time Frame: 36 months ]The goal of the study to identify and validate a new biochemical marker from the blood of the affected patients helping to benefit other patients by an early diagnose and thereby with an earlier treatment.
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
For the development of the new biomarkers using the technique of Mass-spectrometry, maximal 7,5 ml of blood will be taken via using a dry blood spot filter card. To proof the correct Cystinosis diagnosis in those patients where up to the enrollment in the study no genetic testing has been done, sequencing of Cystinosis disease will be done.
The analyses will be done at:
Centogene AG Am Strande 7 18055 Rostock Germany
