Typical HUS
Recruitment of patients for the registry on typical HUS is already completed. Data on long-term follow-up of already enrolled patients are still needed. For information on the registry, or general information please contact Dr. Alejandra Rosales (Alejandra.Rosales@i-med.ac.at).

 
Atypical HUS
The registry on patients with atypical HUS is collecting clinical data and therefore asks for questionnaires of initial presentation, after renal transplantation as well as follow-up data.
 

Additionally we offer the following diagnostic investigations:
  • quantitative determination of the terminal complement complex (TCC, SC5b-9)
  • detection of factor H antibodies and quantification
  • investigation of the CFHR 1 gene for deletions/mutations
Shipment of blood samples differs, some have to be sent on dry ice. For further information please refer to our information sheet.

Inclusion criteria (at least one criterion has to be given):
  • EHEC negative HUS

  • Recurrent HUS

  • Familial HUS

  • HUS/TTP with complement disorder


After giving informed consent (patient or person of custodial care), please complete the questionnaire or send us several medical reports including diagnostic findings of the patient (anonymised). Subsequently we are going to contact you regarding recommended further investigations. Results of our investigations will be returned to you immediately.
