New Research on X-linked Carriers of Chronic Granulomatous Disease: Illness, Lyonization, and Stability

August 10, 2017

There is new clinical data in a recently released article on understanding X-linked Chronic Granulomatous Disease (CGD) carriers and the clinical manifestations associated with it. By undertaking a comprehensive retrospective study of 162 affected females and examining dihydrorhodamine 123 (DHR) oxidation data, lyionization and stability, researchers were able to determine that a low %DHR+ value strongly predicts infection risk in X-linked CGD carriers, and that the carrier state itself is associated with autoimmunity.
