Amino Acid Metabolism, Inborn Errors clinical trials at UCSF
1 research study open to eligible people
Amino acid metabolism, inborn errors refer to rare inherited disorders that affect how the body processes amino acids. UCSF is conducting a clinical trial called "Longitudinal Study of Urea Cycle Disorders" for infants and children with these disorders. They may experience episodes of vomiting, lethargy, and coma due to the way their body processes nitrogen.
open to all eligible people
Urea cycle disorders (UCD) are a group of rare inherited metabolism disorders. Infants and children with UCD commonly experience episodes of vomiting, lethargy, and coma. The purpose of this study is to perform a long-term analysis of a large group of individuals with various UCDs. The study will focus on the natural history, disease progression, treatment, and outcome of individuals with UCD.
