Patients with a confirmed clinical diagnosis of Alport’s Syndrome, in whom a genetic cause has not been found (i.e. their DNA has been screened for mutations in the Alport’s genes with no alteration identified) are eligible for recruitment to this study. Currently recruitment is available through one of eleven sites:

Cambridge, Guys and St Thomas, Liverpool, Manchester, Great Ormond St, Newcastle, Oxford, Devon & Exeter, Southampton and Imperial College London.
