We have preliminary evidence that metformin, a common type 2 diabetes medication, is beneficial for language, cognition, and behavior in both children and adults with Fragile X Syndrome.
A survey to measure levels of behavior. When someone with FXS is experiencing anxiety, describe what you see and hear, and how the experience impacts your/their quality of life.
Our research is looking at how you see and remember the visual world, and how attention changes what we see. We hope our findings will provide a better understanding of the differences in vision and attention occurring in autism.
Our goal is to better understand the different mechanisms within the brain that contribute to the development of psychiatric conditions, including depression, so we can establish better prevention and intervention efforts within this population.
This is a voluntary, and completely anonymous, research survey for women and men who have had a child, or at risk of having a child, with a genetic childhood disorder.
The goal of the study is to learn more about how certain abilities, types of experiences, and biology affect language abilities in adulthood for both males and females with Fragile X syndrome.
We are attempting to further assess Metformin’s safety and benefits, which has been shown to improve the symptoms and difficulties that individuals with FXS experience, including delayed language/cognition, excessive eating, obesity, hypogonadism, and delayed puberty.
AZD7325 may be helpful for treatment of Fragile X syndrome. In this clinical trial, we hope to learn more about the medicine’s safety and if it works on symptoms of FXS.
A multi-center, phase II randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled parallel-group flexible-dose forced-titration study that will use a novel design to address the impact of AFQ056 on language learning in 3- to 6-year-old children with FXS.
The Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is recruiting boys with fragile X syndrome and autism spectrum disorder for a study on language and communication skills and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). The purpose of this research is to better understand how children with fragile X and children with ASD use language. All of the testing is done at the Waisman Center, and can be scheduled at your convenience.
You may be eligible if you have Fragile X syndrome and have had at least one seizure OR if you are a male with Fragile X syndrome who is 17 years or older and have never had a seizure.
The University of Colorado and Children's Hospital Colorado is conducting a research study to learn more about the guardianship experience of individuals with Fragile X Syndrome. We are currently looking for survey participants.
The purpose of this study is to improve our understanding of how differences in brain activity affect learning, language, and behavior in children with Fragile X Syndrome.
The goal of this study is to validate a comprehensive, computerized memory assessment for use in populations with intellectual disabilities.
The Rocket study will help determine if an investigational medicine, called OV101 or gaboxadol, is safe and effective in treating behavioral characteristics commonly present in people with Fragile X syndrome.
