2004-02: Genetic Epidemiological Study on Glaucoma.

Glaucoma
Molecular biology
Investigator Initiated Research
Inclusion open since 1-6-2004

On the initiative of the Institute of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, the Department of Genetic Epidemiology and the Institute of Clinical Genetics of the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam (EMCR a large-scale genetic epidemiological investigation into genes that play a role in several diseases, including diseases Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, diabetes mellitus, and osteoporosis has been started. The project is called "Clinical and genetic studies in a genetically isolated community," Research takes place at about 1600 people in a genetically isolated region with the villages St. Willibrord, Rucphen and Sprundel in North Brabant (abbreviated below to Sprundel). Within the project, the investigators also look at a number of ophthalmic diseases, including glaucoma. To this end, measurements will be carried to quantify the morphology of the optic nerve and retinal nerve fiber layer.
