Molecular genetic studies of individuals and families at risk of inherited cardiac disease (REC Approval Number 09/H0605/3)

Many people clinically affected with cardiomyopathy or cardiac arrhythmia do not have a detectable mutation in the genes currently tested, possibly because the causal mutation may be in a gene not yet identified. This study aims to investigate additional biological candidate genes, and to identify new candidate genes by family linkage studies.

Individuals/families with unusual clinical manifestations or patterns of inheritance, or classical disease but in whom no mutation can be detected, are the focus of this research study.
