Do you or does your child suffer from Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis
Why do some people get the disease and not others?
Why do some run such an aggressive course and others not?
Dr. Farrel Buchinsky, a pediatric otolaryngologist, in Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania is studying genetic susceptibility to RRP (both adult-onset and
juvenile-onset). He is backed by a
research grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the
state-of-the-art capabilities of the Center for Genomic Sciences (CGS) at the
Allegheny-Singer Research Institute and by the collective clinical experience of
the doctors of the RRP Task Force. Now two additional organizations are
assisting to publicize the study and to recruit participants: the Recurrent
Respiratory Papillomatosis Foundation in Lawrenceville, NJ and the International
RRP Information, Support and Advocacy (ISA) Center based in Bellingham, WA.
