Clinical trials in genetics and genomics

Genetics and genomics are at the heart of many clinical studies across Children’s Wisconsin, as researchers and physicians work to better understand the causes of pediatric diseases and discover the best, most effective treatment options.

Recent clinical trials have included:

  • Genetic prevalence of congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency
  • Genetic analysis of children with cyclic vomiting syndrome and migraines
  • Genetic markers as predictors of phenotypes in pediatric-onset Crohn’s disease
  • Genetic variations in the immune system and the influence on susceptibility to infection and chronic lung disease in premature infants
  • Variations in a specific gene called PTGS-1 and increased risk of persistent pulmonary hypertension in newborns who were exposed to over-the-counter pain medicines (NSAIDS) in utero
  • Genetic basis of hemangiomas
