Do you want to stay up to date with the latest BHD news? This is the place to be!
Here we will let you know about the latest BHD research, events, and opportunities to get involved with our work.
A group of researchers in South Korea looked at people with BHD to determine the presenting characteristics of the disease and it revealed interesting results. In this blog, we discuss the study and why the findings are so important.
A research letter by Bajwa et al., discusses a patient with BHD who was found to have multiple extracardiac rhabdomyomas and explores whether they could be linked.
In this blog, we take a deeper look at a study, which investigated the relationship between the FLCN gene and iron homeostasis.
A collaborative project involving researchers in the USA, Japan and Singapore showed there was an increase in activated phagocytes in FLCN mutant mice that mimic human BHD.
A recent study investigated the genes that may cause parathyroid cancer. In this study, the researchers found the same genetic variants associated with BHD in some patients with parathyroid cancer. This blog will discuss the results and shed some light on
In this blog, we discuss a study which investigated the loss of folliculin and how it can lead to cellular dysfunction.
There have been multiple cases of colon cancer reported in BHD patients, however a link between the two has never been established. In this blog, we speak to Dr Arjan Houweling and Dr Irma van de Beek about their research.
June is worldwide LAM awareness month which aims to raise awareness and educate people about Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM). We talked to Professor Elizabeth (Lisa) Henske about her work in LAM and how this translates to the BHD community.
People with BHD are at risk of developing kidney cancer. To develop new drugs to treat BHD kidney cancer, we need to understand how FLCN (the specific gene mutated in BHD) affects the kidneys.
In this blog, we look at two cases of BHD. One focuses on colon cancer and the other on being diagnosed with both congenital contractural arachnodactyly (CCA) and BHD.
We were delighted to award Mindy Wang a travel grant to present her work at the ASCO GU Cancer Symposium earlier this year. Mindy shared her experience at the conference and explained her work in this below.
Earlier this year in Febuary, we highlighted some of the recent BHD case reports.
