ARVD research in Padua.
In the University Medical School of Padua (Italy),
a multidisciplinary group (genetics, cardiology, pathology)
is actively working on this subject.
To date, 50 ARVD autopsy cases were studied by the group leaded
by prof. G. Thiene, at the Pathology Department.
About one hundred ARVD patients are being followed up
by professor A. Nava at the Cardiology Department.
In the laboratory of Human Genetics
headed by prof. G.A. Danieli, the loci ARVD1,
ARVD2, ARVD4 and ARVD8 were mapped in the last
9 years, and two disease genes were identified
for ARVD2 and ARVD8.
Presently, the research is addressed to
the identification of other ARVD genes and to the
resolution of genetic and clinical heterogeneity.
