Genetic and Metabolic Disease in Children

This is a prospective, non-randomized, non-blinded observational study. The overarching goal is to discover new disease-associated genes in children, while establishing a specific focus on disorders where molecular characterization is most likely to lead to novel therapies. This study will merge detailed phenotypic characterization of patients presenting to the Pediatric Genetics and Metabolism Division in the Department of Pediatrics/Children's Medical Center at Dallas and collaborating clinics with Next-Generation sequencing techniques to identify disease-producing mutations. The primary objective of the study is to identify novel pathogenic mutations in children with rare Mendelian disorders. A secondary objective of the study is to establish normative ranges of a large number of metabolites from healthy newborns and older children.

Natural History Study of SCID Disorders

This study is a prospective evaluation of children with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID) who are treated under a variety of protocols used by participating institutions. In order to determine the patient, recipient and transplant-related variables that are most important in determining outcome, study investigators will uniformly collect pre-, post- and peri-transplant (or other treatment) information on all children enrolled into this study. Children will be divided into three strata: - Stratum A: Typical SCID with virtual absence of autologous T cells and poor T cell function - Stratum B: Atypical SCID (leaky SCID, Omenn syndrome and reticular dysgenesis with limited T cell diversity or number and reduced function), and - Stratum C: ADA deficient SCID and XSCID patients receiving alternative therapy including PEG-ADA ERT or gene therapy. Each Group/Cohort Stratum will be analyzed separately.

Multicenter Prospective Cohort Study on Current Treatments of Legg-Calvé-Perthes Disease (IPSG1)

Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease is a childhood hip disorder which is common enough to be a significant public health problem (affects 1 in 740 boys between ages 0—14), but uncommon enough to have a sufficient number of patients from a single institution to perform a definitive prospective study comparing the results of current treatments. The present study will establish a database of prospectively identified patients with Legg-Calvé-Perthes (LCP) Disease and collect information regarding their presentation, treatment, and outcomes in the course of receiving currently available treatments. This study seeks to compare the outcomes of current treatments in the management of different age groups (ages 1-6, 6—8, 8—11, >11) of patients with Perthes disease at two- and five-year followup and at skeletal maturity. For each age group, two to three common treatment regimens currently used by practicing pediatric orthopaedic surgeons will be compared. The intervention a patient receives is determined through physician preference. Physicians pick an intervention for each age group and treat each patient with the same intervention.

Red Blood Cell Exchange Transfusion as a Novel Treatment for GLUT1 Deficiency Syndrome

This proposal is an investigator-initiated, single-site proof of concept trial. Five patients will undergo isovolemic hemodilution-red cell exchange (IHD- RBCx) with up to 10 units of red cell antigens (Rh group, Kell, Duffy, Kidd blood group antigens) matched normal donor red cells to replace a target of 70% of the patient's red cells with donor red cells. The procedure will be performed as an outpatient according to protocols established for sickle cell anemia patients. One of the investigators is an expert on RBCx and will oversee the transfusion. Subjects will be assessed before and after transfusion, and at two months post transfusion. Outcome measures include neurological exam, electroencephalography (EEG), neuropsychological testing, and biochemical assays.

Inclusion Criteria:

• Male or Female
• Age 16 years to 64 years old.
• Diagnosed with genetically-confirmed glucose transporter type 1 disorder
• Patients not currently receiving dietary therapy, including ketogenic diet or other dietary therapy, due to failure of these diets to achieve seizure remission or due to patient preference, including compliance or tolerance issues. Patients currently on Modified Atkins Diet (MAD) and / or taking Medium Chain Triglyceride (MCT) oil are allowed.
Exclusion Criteria:

• Currently on the ketogenic diet or taking triheptanoin (C7) oil
• No genetic confirmation of G1D diagnosis
• Unable to return for follow up visits
• Weak peripheral veins, such that IV placement is contraindicated (required for transfusion)
• Serious chronic medical conditions, such as congestive heart failure, renal failure, liver failure, or any other medical conditions that preclude large volume transfusions.
• Patients currently pregnant or breast-feeding are excluded from participating in this research. Patients who plan on getting pregnant during this research or who are unwilling to use birth control, including abstinence, during the course of this research are also excluded due to safety concerns for the fetus.

Diaphragmatic Hernia Research & Exploration, Advancing Molecular Science (DHREAMS)

The goal of this study is to identify genes that convey susceptibility to congenital diaphragmatic hernia in humans. The identification of such genes, and examination of their structure and function, will enable a delineation of molecular pathogenesis and, ultimately, prevention or treatment of congenital diaphragmatic hernia. There are many different possible modes of inheritance for congenital anomalies, including autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, and multifactorial. Multi-factorial inheritance is responsible for many common medical disorders, including hypertension, myocardial infarction, diabetes and cancer. This type of inheritance pattern appears to involve environmental factors as well as a combination of genetic variations that together can predispose to or produce congenital anomalies, such as congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Our study is designed to establish a small, well-defined genetic resource consisting of 1) Nuclear families suitable for linkage analysis by parametric,non-parametric (e.g. sib pairs, TDT) and association techniques, 2) Individuals with congenital diaphragmatic hernia who can be directly screened for allelic variation in candidate genes, and 3) Individuals who can serve as controls (are unaffected by congenital diaphragmatic hernia). Neonates and their families will be collected from homogenous and heterogeneous populations. By characterizing diverse populations, it should be possible to increase the likelihood of demonstration of genetic variation in selected candidate genes that can then be used in association and linkage studies in individual subjects with congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
