“Results REVEAL: DCM Precision Medicine Study”
This special online event will reveal key results of the 5-year genetic DCM Precision Medicine Study. The DCM Foundation will be hosting this webinar on July 29th at 7:30 PM ET to share the results of this multi-year genetic dilated cardiomyopathy study!
This study, funded by the NIH, was aimed to test the hypothesis that most dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) cases of unknown cause have an underlying genetic basis. The RESULTS ARE IN!
An online event for all study participants of the DCM Precision Medicine and DCM Discovery studies
Join Dr. Ray Hershberger and the DCM Precision Medicine investigative team for a presentation of key study results. We also invite all study participants of prior DCM Research Projects to join.
The DCM Precision Medicine Study consists of a diverse cohort of individuals with DCM and their family members of African and European ancestry, as well as a subset of individuals who are of Hispanic ethnicity. By studying individuals with DCM and their family members, we aimed to describe the proportion of DCM that is familial and the proportion of probands with an identified genetic cause of their DCM. Our diverse cohort allows us to consider the genetic differences that contribute to DCM between sex, race, and ethnic groups.
Key Presentation Topics include:
° Proportion of familial DCM in a cohort of patients with DCM
° Understanding DCM genetics in European and African ancestry
° Family communication regarding DCM
You will have the opportunity to submit questions prior to the event and also for live Q and A sessions throughout the event.
