Meeting X Fragil


Days 28 and 29 of October of this year we helped organising an International Meeting in FXS in Argentina, together with the FXS Parent Association. The meeting was in the fantastic auditorium of the Cultural Centre of Science, in the city of Buenos Aires, kindly offered for free by the director of the C3 and with the support of the INCyT, Argentina.


Over 200 registered, families, neurologists, scientists with the support of the pharmaceutical industry.


In a brief summary, we can say that the issue of the new medications was common to almost all the lectures, both of the professionals as researchers and pharmaceutical companies.
