Until the genes causing PC were discovered, little research progress could be made

The first PC gene, KRT16, was identified and published in 1995 by W. H. Irwin McLean. In that same year, the KRT 6a gene was published by Paul Bowden. Since that time nearly 100 specific genetic mutations have been identified for PC by the McLean/Smith laboratory. Full text of over 600 publications related to PC are available in the Published Research Articles. PC Project is always eager to collaborate on research papers.

PC Project serves as a resource for the medical and scientific communities. We are eager to collaborate and assist you in every way. You may Refer a Patient or Connect With Us and to let us know how we can be of assistance to you or your patients.

Data from the IPCRR patient registry is available on the PC Data tab including listings of all of the genes and mutations linked to Pachyonychia Congenita, a summary of the registry data and other helpful charts and graphs.

Copies of all PC Patient NewsBrief issues and IPCC Newsletters are available on the PC News and Events page as well as announcements of upcoming meetings and news articles.
