purpose: We are planning to collected blood and saliva for DNA extraction to use for genetic testing of children and adults with EDS and their relatives. Medical records from other institutions and clinical notes for visits in Dr. Holick’s clinic will be reviewed to obtain the following information: previous diagnosis at other institutions, age, clinical signs and symptoms of EDS, Joints Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS), , and other metabolic or genetic disor...

purpose: Background: – The autonomic nervous system helps control things that happen automatically in the body, like blood pressure, heart rate, and digestion. When it doesn t work properly, it s called dysautonomia. Researchers want to learn more about dysautonomias and train doctors to learn how to better diagnose them. Objectives: To allow people with autonomic disorders to be evaluated. To help fellows in the NIH Autonomic Dis...

purpose: Sudoscan™ (Impeto Medical, Paris France) uses electrochemical skin conductance as a novel noninvasive method to detect sudomotor dysfunction. Several small studies have recently shown that Sudoscan use in the assessment of small fiber polyneuropathy (in diabetes mellitus) can be performed non-invasively, quickly and effectively. The investigators aim to study the use of Sudoscan in rare disease condition associated with small fiber polyneuropat...

purpose: Benign Hypermobility Joint Syndrome is a group of inherited abnormalities in the structure of connective tissues, manifested by disturbances in the proportion of collagen. The main symptoms of this syndrome include: laxity of joint capsules and ligaments, hypermobility of the joints, as well as numerous disturbances in the functioning of internal organs that contain connective tissue, including the gastrointestinal tract. Hypermobility of joints...

purpose: Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is an inherited disease of collagen, found in connective tissues, such as skin. EDS patients suffer from joint and skin problems (skin hyperextensibility, joint hypermobility) along with a large range of other disorders, including, delayed wound healing with atrophic scarring, easy bruising, tissue fragility, gastrointestinal and gum problems. There are many different types of EDS, with different mechanisms of action,...

location: United Kingdom

purpose: This study aims to verify the hypothesis that patients with Vascular Ehlers Danlos syndrome (vEDS) should benefit of the blockade of angiotensin (Ang) II noxious effects on their vasculature affected by a defect in type III collagen in addition to the effects celiprolol. This randomized, double blind, placebo controlled trial compares the administration of the Ang II type I receptor blocker (ARB) — irbesartan— to placebo over a 2-year period...

purpose: Ehlers-Danlos syndrome vascular type (EDS-IV) is caused by a genetic defect of collagen type III. Patient die (median 40 yrs) of vascular complications. There is no treatment. We showed that arteries are thin and overloaded in this patients. We test the protective effect of celiprolol on cardiovascular events in a 5 years, randomized, PROBE design

location: France

purpose: The Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (SED) comprises a group of clinically and genetically heterogeneous, inherited connective tissue diseases. The hypermobility type is the most frequent. It is characterized by a generalized joint hypermobility and a hyperextension skin. Chronic pain syndrome is often present. Its psychological impact can be significant (anxiety, depression, impact on the quality of life of the patients). The disease also requires chan...

location: France

purpose: Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of inherited connective tissue disorders characterized by joint hypermobility, skin hyperextensibility, and tissue fragility. EDS features such as genetically related cartilage defects, craniofacial abnormalities and increased pharyngeal collapsibility have been proposed to cause obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). There is evidence from studies based on questionnaires t...

location: Switzerland

purpose: The primary objective of this study is to determine whether specific patterns of circulating micro-ribonucleic acids (miRNAs) are associated with aortic aneurysm and dissection in patients with hereditary aortopathy syndromes. The most common of these syndromes is Marfan Syndrome (MFS), but several other recognized aortopathy syndromes are well characterized. The investigators propose the use of a simple blood test, from which miRNA profiles can...

location: United States

purpose: The purpose of this study is to determine whether patients with vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome present significant and specific changes of arterial endothelial and smooth muscular cell signalling/secretion, in comparison to matched healthy volunteers and patients with spontaneous arterial dissections.

purpose: The Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (EDS) is a rare genetic disease caused by an anomaly of the connective tissue. This syndrome has different forms. Hypermobility type is the most common. It is characterized by generalized joint hypermobility, associated with a chronic pain syndrome. Pains appear as the most frequent demonstration of this syndrome, the worst lived and the most crippling. Faced with insufficient effect of drug treatment, other alternat...

purpose: Brittle Cornea Syndrome and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) type VI are rare collagen-connective tissue disorders that predispose affected individuals to the development of perforated corneas from the mildest of eye trauma or even spontaneously. Clinical studies evaluating riboflavin-corneal crosslinking have found that it dramatically increases corneal rigidity. Given the success and safety of riboflavin crosslinking, the investigators believe that...

location: Israel

purpose: Observational study of axial spine pain and hyperflexibility. Patients will receive physical exam maneuvers (traditional straight leg raise, FABER, facet loading as well as Beighton's hypermobility score) and blood / urine / saliva collection. They will also be separated into pain groups based on their response to injections. A correlation between exam findings and procedure group will be measured.
