Publications Section : FRAXE


FRAXE (also known as Fragile XE) is associated with silencing of the FMR2 gene, which is beside the 'Fragile X' (FMR1) gene on the X chromosome. FRAXE is a rare condition (affecting between 1/25,000-100,000 people) which is associated with some similar symptoms to Fragile X Syndrome, such as intellectual disabilities, though typically milder. There is no specific FRAXE support charity, but we are very happy to speak with anyone who would like to know more about FRAXE, or who would like support. 


In this video Charlie, who has FRAXE, discusses his experience and interviews professionals about FRAXE.
