Trial Information

Dysregulation of Hematopoiesis in Fanconi Anemia


OBJECTIVES:

- Identify the specific molecular function of the Fanconi anemia (FA) complementing gene
products in hematopoietic progenitor cells from patients with FA.

- Identify functional defects in hematopoietic stromal cells from patients with FA.

OUTLINE: Peripheral blood mononuclear leukocytes, skin fibroblasts, and marrow fibroblasts
are collected for loss-of-function and gain-of-function analysis related to the Fanconi
anemia complementing gene.
