Description

This project is to allow blood sampling from normal volunteers and patients with dysautonomia, pheochromocytoma, hypertension, or neurogenetic diseases involving catecholaminergic systems. The blood is used to establish normal values for plasma levels of catechols and related neurochemicals; test for abnormal neurochemical patterns in patients; and establish a "bank" of DNA samples from normal volunteers and from patients, to be used in future studies about mutations or polymorphisms of catecholamine-related genes.

Eligibility criteria

  • INCLUSION CRITERIA:
  • The subjects are healthy normal volunteers or patients with dysautonomia, pheochromocytoma, hypertension, or neurogenetic diseases involving catecholaminergic systems. Children of any age above 4 years may participate. In the case of minors, consent is obtained from an adult who is legally responsible for the subject.
  • EXCLUSION CRITERIA:
  • Subjects in whom anatomic or technical factors preclude insertion of an arm intravenous (i.v.) catheter are excluded. Normal volunteers taking any prescribed medication are excluded. Normal volunteers who smoke cigarettes or consume alcohol daily are excluded.
