Search for Biomarkers in Fragile X Syndrome
Project supported by FRAXA
Biomarkers are key to learning more about Fragile X and the correlation with the clinical and behavioral characteristics of the syndrome across diverse developmental stages.
We are searching for biomarkers that could potentially be used for clinical trials for treatment in children, teenagers, and adults with fragile X and for patients stratification
We are looking for families of children with fragile X to participate in their study to identify blood-based and neurophysiological markers. We will study three age groups:children, adolescents and adults and their families: mother, father, affected and unaffected siblings.
This is a multidisciplinary project that works hand in hand with the families, if it succeeds, it will be an enormous help to future clinical trials.
Frax-DVI as a member of this community, welcomes the opportunity to be an educational and development resource for all rare disease groups.
