Variegate Porphyria (VP) clinical trials at UCSF
1 in progress, 1 open to new patients
open to eligible people ages 15 years and up
The purpose of this study is to test whether a focused questionnaire and laboratory tests can better define risk factors associated with possible genetic porphyria. The investigators hypothesize that the genetic carrier state of acute porphyria is distinctive enough that the Genetic Carrier Profile the investigators devise through this study will be useful in identifying carriers of genetic porphyria among the large population with undiagnosed abdominal pain.
