The Brain Vascular Malformations Consortium (BVMC) is a study team investigating three rare diseases that cause brain vascular malformations including, Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia (HHT), Sturge-Weber Syndrome (SWS), and Cerebral Cavernous Malformations (CCM).
The CCM project is currently recruiting participants for a study called, “Brain Vascular Malformation Consortium: Predictors of clinical course. Project 3: Modifiers of Disease Severity and Progression in Cerebral Cavernous Malformations (CCM).” The goal of this study is to investigate the genetic factors that contribute to CCM disease severity and progression.
To address this question, researchers are looking specifically at the genetic variations in individuals with familial CCM. To qualify, participants must have a positive CCM diagnosis and affected family member(s), or a known mutation in one of the CCM genes.
