The Rett Syndrome Research Trust launches operations

inical presentations of MECP2 spectrum disorders, which include autistic profiles, and their molecular underpinnings. She comments on the relevance of this work to conditions beyond classic Rett Syndrome: "Rett Syndrome and MECP2 disorders provide an opportunity to understand the neuronal and molecular basis of a variety of neuropsychiatric disorders. Patients with Rett and related disorders manifest features of so many of the neurological disorders we encounter in the clinic. Thus, understanding the pathogenic mechanism underlying MECP2 disorders is likely to help us understand diseases ranging from autism and schizophrenia to cognitive disorders, epilepsy, and Parkinson disease."

Monica Coenraads, Executive Director of the Trust, describes the work ahead. "This early stage of drug discovery is unlikely to be a high funding priority for the National Institutes of Health, large pharmaceutical or small biotech companies, but is the Trust's sole and immediate pursuit. RSRT has been structured as an agile, science-driven organization, able to respond dynamically to emerging research. A private effort is essential if treatments and cures are to be developed in a time frame that the devastating nature of this disorder demands."
