How can I learn about research involving primary ciliary dyskinesia and Kartagener syndrome?

The Genetic Disorders Of Mucociliary Clearance Consortium is a network of four U.S. centers that are collaborating in the diagnostic testing, genetic studies, and clinical trials in patients with impairments in mucociliary clearance, focusing on primary ciliary dyskinesia, cystic fibrosis, and pseudohypoaldosteronism. Ultimately, this group hopes to better understand the cause of these diseases, to improve or expand diagnostic testing, and to develop new treatments. Visit the Web site to learn more about current research studies.

Visit our Clinical Trials & Research tab for a list of additional resources where you may find research studies and clinical trials for primary ciliary dyskinesia and Kartagener syndrome.

You can also contact the Patient Recruitment and Public Liaison (PRPL) Office at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). We recommend calling toll-free 1-800-411-1222 to speak with a specialist who can help you determine if you are eligible for any clinical trials at the NIH.
