Fragile X Syndrome, third edition

Diagnosis, Treatment, and Research

Fragile X syndrome is the most common inherited form of mental retardation. Now substantially revised and updated, this acclaimed book discusses the clinical approach to diagnosing the disorder, supported by the latest research in epidemiology, molecular biology and genetics, and neuropsychology. It also presents information on treatment: genetic counseling, pharmacotherapy, intervention, and gene therapy.

About the Authors

Randi Jenssen Hagerman, M.D., is Tsakopoulos-Vismara Professor of Pediatrics at the M.I.N.D. Institute in Sacramento, California. Paul J. Hagerman, M.D., Ph.D., is a professor in the Department of Biological Chemistry at the University of California, Davis.

Reviews

"This useful and unique book can be used as a reference for specific issues related to fragile X, as an overview of particular topics, and as a comprehensive review of all of the various aspects of this condition."

- William O. Walker, Jr. - Doody's Health Sciences Review

"Includes updated chapters on the cytogenetic and molecular biology of the FXS mutation and premutation. The first half addresses the diagnosis and research aspects and is well referenced. The latter half is dedicated to treatment and intervention. The chapter that emphasizes an integrated approach to intervention could easily qualify for continuing medical education credit."

- Journal of the American Medical Association

"This book should sit on the library shelves of clinical geneticists. It is well written, well referenced, and should become well thumbed."

- Journal of Medical Genetics

"Answers nearly all the questions that parents or clinicians might raise about fragile X syndrome... Can be recommended confidently as a thoroughly up-to-date, reliable, and informative account of the condition."

- The Lancet

"The clinical and cytogenetic material in this book is excellent and provides a strong background for physicians and students... Fragile X Syndrome still presents the best comprehensive treatment of this complex disorder. Physicians, students, and other interested professionals can either read this book from cover to cover or select the chapters that interest or apply to them."

- New England Journal of Medicine

"This useful and unique book can be used as a reference for specific issues related to fragile X, as an overview of particular topics, and as a comprehensive review of all of teh various aspects of this condition."

- William O. Walker, Jr.MD - Doody's Book Reviews

"I strongly encourage genetic counselors and clinical geneticists to invest in a copy of this book. It is an invaluable resource on all aspects of Fragile X syndrom from genetic counceling, molecular testing, and prenatal diagnosis, to the latest treatment, education, and interventional strategies. When searching for up-to-date information on Fragile X syndrom, this book constitutes as one-stop-shopping."

- Barbara Pettersen - Journal of Genetic Counseling

"This book is essential on the desk of everyone committed to the care of fragile X patients and to the research of the fascinating syndrome."
