SACRAMENTO, Calif. (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
Researchers at the internationally respected UC Davis MIND Institute are collaborating with scientists at two Colombian universities to investigate the very high rate of fragile X-related disorders in one region in the South American country.
Named the "Colombia Project of Hope," the initiative aims to advance fragile X research and benefit individuals with fragile X-related disorders in the United States and around the world by focusing on a recently identified fragile X "hotspot" in Colombia.
In November 2013, fragile X researchers led by internationally known fragile X investigator and MIND Institute Medical Director Randi Hagerman, visited the Valle del Cauca District and the small town of Ricaurte, which for years has been known to have a very high prevalence of individuals with intellectual disability, formerly termed mental retardation.
Our goal is to advance fragile X research worldwide by turning Ricaurte from a village of despair to a village of hope with new treatments for fragile X syndrome and related disorders, Hagerman said.
Hagerman and her team screened many of Ricaurtes residents, using a diagnostic test developed by Flora Tassone, UC Davis professor of biochemistry and molecular medicine. Conducted in partnership with the Colombian scientists, the testing found a very high incidence of fragile-X related mutations among the population the reason for the regions high levels of intellectual disability and the solution to a decades-old medical mystery.
The term fragile X is used to describe the altered appearance of the X chromosome among sufferers from the constellation of conditions associated with defects in a gene called FMR1. The defect causes disorders such as fragile X syndrome, the leading cause of intellectual disability and the leading known single-gene cause of autism, and a Parkinsons disease-like condition in adults called fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome, or FXTAS. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that about 1 in 4,000 males and 1 in 6,000 to 8,000 females in the United States have fragile X syndrome.
After determining the high incidence of fragile X disorders in and around Ricaurte, the MIND Institute investigators determined that researching this fragile X hotspot could offer additional clues to the development of fragile X and its incidence in other populations around the world. They determined to approach the initiative through collaborating with their colleagues at research institutions in Bogota and Medell
