The International Rett Syndrome Foundation Company Profile

01:07 EST 20th November 2017 | BioPortfolio

While there are over 3,800 known cases of Rett Syndrome in the United States which predominantly strikes only girls, the disorder is genetically linked to more widespread neurological disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. Rett symptoms begin to manifest between the first six to eighteen months of life and in most cases will eventually incapacitate the afflicted children so that they cannot survive without constant care. The disorder causes seizures, respiratory and gastrointestinal abnormalities, and a variety of muscular and motor impairments.
