Do you have a child with Rett syndrome? If so, your child may be eligible to participate in a research study at Texas Children’s Hospital. Researchers at Texas Children’s Hospital want to learn about a new medication for Rett syndrome. 

Would the study be a good fit for your child?

• Yes if your child has a diagnosis of Rett syndrome

• Yes if your child is a female between 16-45 years old

• Yes if your child is able to swallow a liquid or have a gastrostomy tube

What will happen if your child takes part in this research study?

Your child will:

• Stay at Texas Children’s Hospital for 6 days with 34 days follow up

• Be given medication or a placebo (fake medication)

• Have blood and laboratory sampling

• Have brain activity monitored

• Have heart activity monitored

• Have Rett syndrome symptoms monitored

Participation comes at no cost to the family. Research is always voluntary!
