Marfan Syndrome: Disease Bioinformatics

Marfan syndrome is a genetic disease that affects the connective tissue in the body that provides strength, support, and elasticity to tendons. This effects eyes, bones, skin, lungs, nervous system, and the heart and blood vessels. Marfan syndrome can be deadly if the disease causes damage to the aorta, causing bleeding in the inner walls of the vessel. If this happens surgery to replace the affected part of the aorta is often required. Marfan syndrome is relatively common, 1 in every 5,000 people have this syndrome. There is no cure for Marfan syndrome, however the life expectancy of a person with Marfan syndrome is that of an average person. Clinical trials are promising treatments to cure Marfan syndrome but for now issues are addressed as they arise.
