The ROCKET study is a clinical research study that 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 (FXS). The study will test three different doses of OV101.
Participation in the ROCKET study will last approximately 21 weeks and include six visits to the study medical center and four phone appointments. The study center visits will last the majority of the day.
At the clinic appointments, you will meet with your study team, which will include a study physician, nurse, and other healthcare professionals. They will explain the study, answer your questions, and monitor your care.
The phone appointments will take place between visits to the study medical center. During these calls, a study team member will ask about any changes in your son’s health and behavior. You may also discuss any side effects or new symptoms your son may be experiencing and any new medicines or vitamins he may be taking.

Our Most Recent Opportunities
Doctors at Rush University are researching cognition, balance, and walking patterns in people who carry a premutation in the Fragile X (FMR1) gene.
The University of South Carolina is conducting a research study focusing on the range of language, social, and cognitive features that may be associated with variations on the FMR1 gene. Women age 35-75 who are carriers of the Fragile X premutation may be eligible to participate.
An Alliant International University clinical psychology doctoral candidate is conducting a research study to learn about the cognitive profile of children with a full mutation of Fragile X. Males and transgender females between the age of 8 and 12 may be eligible to participate.
The MIND Group at the University of Minnesota is conducting a survey for parents of children with Fragile X syndrome to learn about how genetic and neurodevelopmental differences impact behavioral strengths and challenges. Parents of 3–17 year old children living with Fragile X are eligible to participate.
Purdue University is conducting a research study to learn about language and social communication development in Fragile X syndrome. Children ages 3–4 years (36–60 months) with the full mutation may be eligible to participate.
