The Modifiers of Fragile X-Associated Disorders (FX-MOD) study is trying to answer the question of why some people with Fragile X syndrome have seizures and others do not, and you can help!
You may be eligible if:
- you are a male or female with Fragile X syndrome and have had at least one seizure, OR
- you are a male with Fragile X syndrome who is 17 years or older and have never had a seizure.
Study activities include a medical history review, a blood or saliva sample for whole genome sequencing, and health and well-being questionnaires.
Participants will receive a $25 gift card for a completed blood or saliva sample.
Travel is not required. Participation can take place through the mail.
The study is being conducted by the National Fragile X Center at Emory University.

The Research in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Lab at the Waisman Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is looking for parents of male or female children 6 to 17 years old with Fragile X syndrome for an online survey.
RTI International and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill are conducting an early intervention study to learn about the best ways to support early development in infants identified with the full mutation of Fragile X. Babies 0–9 months old with the full mutation, and their caregivers, may be eligible to participate.
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.
