pain, it is too late to help the patient.”

The Next Step

“Our next step is to measure fibrillin-1 levels over several years in patients at high risk for aortic aneurysms. Long-term studies with large numbers of patients are the best way to determine whether the blood test is sensitive enough to monitor aortic aneurysm development or detect dissection,” said Dr. Marshall.

This work is already under way by the research team. A 5-year study of children and young adults is currently open for enrollment at the Portland and Houston Shriners Hospitals for Children and at the University of Utah. The study will monitor both circulating fibrillin-1 and echocardiograms of aortic root size in patients with Marfan syndrome and related disorders (Loeys-Dietz syndrome, familial thoracic aortic aneurysm and dissection, and vascular Ehlers-Danlos syndrome) to determine if the amounts of fibrillin-1 in blood increase with aneurysm growth.
