Research Project  

Application of Next Generation Sequencing technologies to a group of patients with different rare undiagnosed diseases.
Research plan and objectives: The identification of the molecular basis of a number of disorders has become the basis for the management of the disease itself and for performing clinical trials on patients homogeneous not so much on the basis of the clinical phenotype but rather on the specific gene alteration. These trials, in turn, make it possible to identify categories of drugs designed to suppress the pathological effects caused by the altered protein pathway. Obviously, the identification of the causative mutation in the patient allows the expansion of the investigation to his/her at risk family members who can therefore be treated in asymptomatic stages or in stages in which the disease is still mild. Most importantly and more pragmatically, it allows to perform prenatal diagnosis so to recognize fetuses at risk to be affected by the disease and take the proper decisions. Currently, the diagnosis of genetic mutations is possible for large numbers of patients and in real time thanks to the new approaches to gene sequencing (next generation sequencing) allowing sequencing of megabases of DNA at a cost even lower than 1000 € per patient and, therefore, much more convenient than the one requested for the analysis of a single gene with the Sanger method. The identification of genetic mutations associated with nephronophthisis could be a good example of a new medicine based on new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. Nephronophthisis is the most frequent cause of polycystic kidney with loss of renal function and subsequent dialysis or transplantation by the third decade of life. The nephronophthisis fall into the category of the ciliopathies and are associated with mutations of at least 10 different genes. The construction of next generation platforms specifically dedicated to this disease makes it possible to identify the specific gene mutated and to implement treatment’s protocols in the family and still asymptomatic mutation carriers.
Methodologies: Patients DNAs will be evaluated by using next generation sequencing
either whole exome or targeted panels. The research takes advantage of two high throughput sequencers, Genome Analyzer IIx and MiSeq (both provided by Illumina) that are currently in use by the team of Prof. Zuffardi
