Yale University Commits to PRP Patient Registry

From the Editor…

With the support of the National Institutes of Health and the Foundation for Ichthyosis & Related Skin Types (FIRST), Yale University School of Medicine is building the first Patient Registry for ichthyosis and related skin types. A patient registry is the cornerstone of research. Investigators researching PRP, for example, will have access to the patient data they need to experiment, discover, and achieve medical breakthroughs. Without patient registries, the process of scientific discovery in medical treatments can be slowed, halted, or even dismissed.

The PRP community has been given the opportunity to participate in the building of a PRP Patient Registry. The PRP Alliance supports this effort and encourages every PRP patient to participate.

Step One — Decide to Participate

Ted Zaki is the go-to person for the PRP Patient Registry. A senior medical student at the Yale School of Medicine, Ted  is currently working as a research fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Keith Choate, director of research of the Yale Medicine Department of Dermatology.   Besides maintaining the National Registry for Ichthyosis and Related Skin Types (including PRP) run by the Foundation for Ichthyosis and Related Skin Types (FIRST), Ted is interested in studying quality of life in patients with various skin conditions, particularly PRP.

All you need to know about Patient Registries is available on the FIRST website. Check out Frequently Asked Questions.

If you are interested in sharing your experience living with PRP, please email Ted addressing the questions below for enrollment in the National Registry for Ichthyosis and Related Skin Types. Remember, PRP is one of the “related skin types”. Once enrolled, you will be invited to participate in the the Department of Dermatology’s ongoing quality of life project.

Step Two — Answer Yale’s Five Questions

  How old were you when you first noticed PRP symptoms?
   Where on your body did the symptoms first appear?
   Does anyone else in your family have PRP?
   Have you ever had a biopsy done? If so, did it support the diagnosis of PRP? If you have access to the biopsy report, please send a copy.
   Have you ever had genetic testing done? If you have access to the report, please send a copy

Step Three — Send photos

Please send photos of your skin — whatever you are comfortable sharing. preferably of your PRP during a flare. Your photos will be reviewed by Dr. Choate and he will determine your eligibility for inclusion in the PRP Patient Registry. (See Sample)

People’s size not merely affects appearance, but also the overall quality of life. Self-esteem, melancholy, health risks, along with physical capabilities are affected in extra weight. It is possible to just make everything right and still gain. Should this happen, a medical problem may be the root cause.

In recent times, I have been able to understand that the particular symptoms of mesothelioma are caused by the actual build up associated fluid between the lining of the lung and the chest muscles cavity. The infection may start inside the chest spot and distribute to other parts of the body. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma include weight reduction, severe breathing in trouble, throwing up, difficulty ingesting, and swelling of the face and neck areas. It really should be noted that some people living with the disease do not experience almost any serious symptoms at all.

  6. Thanks for the suggestions you have contributed here. Furthermore, I believe there are some factors which really keep your car insurance premium down. One is, to take into consideration buying vehicles that are from the good set of car insurance providers. Cars that happen to be expensive tend to be at risk of being stolen. Aside from that insurance policies are also based on the value of your truck, so the more pricey it is, then higher a premium you have to pay.
