Question for people in the medical field, please boost 

A while ago, I unsuccessfully tried to get my hands on some papers about CHH (cartilage-hair hypoplasia) by trying to directly contact several authors of these papers, but I never even got a reply from any of them.
(The freely accessible papers are already part of my CHH-folder, of course.)

Now, after reading a similar request elsewhere, I though I'll just try and naively ask around here (waving vaguely towards the scholar.social instance) - does anybody have access to any papers regarding CHH and could send them to me?

The thing is, CHH is quite rare (about 1 in a million in most populations, except in the Finnish and the Amish), so there's little research and afaik no books about it, and it would be nice if affected people could at least get access to the existing research results somehow.

Thanks to everybody who answered or boosted my question for medical papers!
I think, now I have everything I needed. :)

@KAOS do you have DOI numbers, or author names and titles of those papers you already know you want to have?

@malte I'd need to look them up again... 😳 Generally, everything there is would be potentially useful.

@KAOS if charité or one of the other teaching hospitals have departments that would fit that research, you could also ask if they'd allow you a few hours in their library?

when i did that as a student once, it was absolutely no problem 🤷

@KAOS any papers in particular? A quick pubmed search has a lot of recent papers (as recent as this year) and most of them are open access

@eearroyo1312 Thanks!
I looked around last night and found a number of papers that I asked another person about already, but if there'll be some she doesn't have access to, I'll post them here.
Apparently, being just too inexperienced at looking for papers😅 , I missed a few of the recent ones, though. So thanks for that.
