Pleuropulmonary Blastoma DICER1 Syndrome Study
The Pleuropulmonary (PPB) DICER1 Syndrome Study is an observational study of individuals with PPB and/or other DICER1-related tumors and their families. The study seeks to define the tumor types and risks associated with the DICER1 syndrome. Investigators also seek to understand why some individuals with a change in DICER1 develop cancer while others remain healthy.
To carry out this study, the Clinical Genetics Branch is partnering with leading research groups, including:
- International Pleuropulmonary Blastoma Registry (also see their Facebook page)
- International Ovarian and Testicular Stromal Tumor Registry
- Department of Pathology at Children's National Medical Center
- St. Louis Children's Hospital, part of Washington University in St. Louis
