研究施設として参加するためには

There are two types of participating research facilities:
(1) Data Providers, which analyze information obtained from the samples, and
(2) Material Providers, which provide the samples for analysis.

Please see the CHART Download


1) To participate in our research as a Material Provider, you must apply and register by downloading and completing the Facility Registration Form and faxing it to our Research Head Office (Fax: 027-220-8474).

2) After you have registered as a participating facility, you can obtain the necessary papers for approval by your facility's ethics committee, as well as the equipment required for sending us your samples. Please submit the Material Provider research plan that you have prepared for us to your ethics committee for their approval.

3) After you have received official approval from your facility's ethics committee, please collect 2- to 3-ml blood samples from patients who have given their written informed consent to participate in this study, and submit these samples to the testing company (SRL) using the special identification sheet and vial. The testing company will then send our Head Research Office the DNA results, which will be kept on record.

4) Material Providers should fax us the completed Clinical Information Form directly, so that we can keep the clinical information for each patient together with the DNA findings obtained from their samples.

5) The results of DNA testing and the patient's clinical information will then be sent to a Data Provider, where they will be used to evaluate our research hypotheses.

What is a Data Provider?
Because the number of samples will be limited, it is necessary to obtain official approval from the Kawasaki Disease Genetic Consortium Steering Committee before assisting us in our research by becoming a Data Provider or designated research facility. If your facility wishes to apply for approval as a Data Provider or designated research facility, you must first register and participate as a Material Provider, after which you may submit a research proposal for evaluation by the Steering Committee.
