Inherited Ocular Disease Recruitment Registry

Multicenter Observational Study of X-Linked Retinitis Pigmentosa.

Principal Investigators: Kim Stepien, MD

Co-investigator: Melanie Schmitt, MD

Study Coordinator: Nickie Stangel

Study Objective:

To have an on-site repository of potential study participants with inherited ocular disease available to researchers affiliated with the Department of Ophthalmology & Visual Sciences within the School of Medicine and Public Health at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Study Design:

Subjects who present to the UW Health Eye Clinic with a presumed diagnosis of an inherited ocular disease are eligible to participate in the inherited ocular disease recruitment registry. For those who consent to take part in the recruitment registry, they will be contacted about future research trials that they may be eligible for based on their clinical phenotype/genotype information as documented in the clinical data repository.

Diagnosis and Key Eligibility Criteria:

Individuals (including minors) with a presumed diagnosis of an inherited ocular disease are eligible to participate in the recruitment registry. The diagnosis will be made by a qualified medical professional and whenever possible confirmed by genetic testing results.

Duration of Study: Indefinite.
