Pediatric Cardiac Genomics Consortium (U01 - Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Funding Opportunity RFA-HL-20-015 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to invite applications to participate as a Research Center in the Pediatric Cardiac Genomics Consortium (PCGC) ( The PCGCs mission is to identify genetic causes of human congenital heart disease (CHD) and to relate genetic variants in patients with CHD to clinical outcomes through collaborative, multi-center studies. The PCGC fosters investigation along the translational spectrum of CHD research through interactions with Cardiovascular Development Data Resource Center (CDDRC, previously the Cardiovascular Development Consortium) and the Pediatric Heart Network (PHN). Together, they constitute the Bench to Bassinet Program ( (B2B). Sites not currently part of the PCGC are encouraged to apply and propose new directions for the consortium.

There hasn’t been much good news about Alzheimer’s lately, between the March announcement by Biogen and Esai that a promising trial of a potential drug treatment failed, and the July decision by Novartis and Amgen to stop their study of another class of therapies for the neurodegenerative disease. But in a pair of studies presented at the annual Alzheimer’s Association International Conference on July 14, researchers reported encouraging results from studies of non-drug approaches. In one, scientists led by Dr. Klodian Dhana at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago followed nearly 2,500 people for alm...

Conclusion: The risk factors like high TG, low HDL, high BP, and high fasting glucose were found higher particularly in younger population which may lead to diagnosis &complications of diabetes, hypertension and lipid abnormality. Due to changing physiology in young and middle age population these individuals are moving towards metabolic syndrome easily and needs frequent monitoring, preventive checkups, and lifestyle changes to prevent complications.

Authors: Vallée A, Zhang Y, Protogerou A, Safar ME, Blacher J Abstract Background: Non-invasive tests leading to elective coronary angiography (CAG) have low diagnostic yield for obstructive coronary heart disease (CHD). Aortic stiffness, an independent predictor of CHD events can be easily measured by pulse wave velocity (PWV). We aimed at retrospectively evaluating the diagnostic accuracy PWV index to detect CHD in consecutive patients with suspected CHD that underwent CAG. Method: In population of 86 healthy patients with available PWV data, a theoretical PWV was derived. In different population of 62 ind...
