|Tuberous Sclerosis Clinic|
This clinic provides service to patients who have an established or suspected diagnosis of tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Our interdisciplinary team includes experts from genetics, neurology, dermatology, and genetic counseling. In addition, we have ready access to consultants in endocrinology, pulmonology, nephrology, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, and more. The goal of this clinic is to provide patients and their families with access to medical providers who are familiar with the healthcare guidelines and medical or emotional concerns of patients with tuberous sclerosis complex. Our providers also strive to have the most current information on treatment and research in the field.

The national support group and organization dedicated to patients with TSC and their families is called the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance. There is also a local chapter of the TS Alliance in Birmingham. Communication with other families, updates about research opportunities, access to information about TSC, as well as community events are all available through this organization. For more information about the TS Alliance and our local group, please visit their website (www.tsalliance.org).
There are many research opportunities available to patients with TSC. UAB is a participating site in many of these studies. The studies have a variety of eligibility criteria. A brief summary of the current clinical trials is below.
Please note that these research opportunities sometimes change more quickly than we can update our website. For the most up to date information about TSC research opportunities at UAB, please contact our study coordinator, Cheryl Hall. More information about research on TSC can be found at www.clinicaltrials.gov and at www.tsalliance.org.
