Defining the Basis of Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD)

Defining the Basis of Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD)

The purpose of this study has evolved and expanded since its inception. Originally the intent was to establish the functional, molecular and genetic profile of fibroblasts from Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD) patients as compared to carefully matched control subjects. While this remains among the objectives, the study has been expanded to undertake a fully powered cross-tissue systems genetics analysis of FMD, and now also the related arteriopathies spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) and cervical artery dissection (CvAD). The overall objective is to disclose the core biologic mechanisms of these disorders.
