Current research the Pheo Para Alliance is funding:
A prime example of the groundbreaking research funded by the Pheo Para Alliance is the A5 SDHB Genomics Study, in which seventeen scientists from seven nations are coordinating their efforts to identify genetic causes and influences of metastatic pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma. Their discovery of genetic and chromosomal alterations including other genetic abnormalities will enable physicians as well as scientists to identify and treat patients with metastasis or perhaps also those at risk for metastasis even before the disease spread occurs. In addition, such discoveries will in turn create many entirely new avenues for further treatment and diagnostic approaches of metastatic pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma.
