• About the Study

    This study is being done to help researchers learn more about the prevalence (commonness) and symptoms of CTX. The tests and procedures done at the study visit are:

    • A review of your medical history
    • A review of any medications you are currently taking around the time of the study visit
    • One urine sample and one blood sample to test for the gene that causes CTX

    A follow-up phone call with the study doctor about eight weeks later to discuss the results of your blood and urine tests and address any questions you may have. If it is determined that you have or may be at risk for CTX, the study doctor will provide you with more information and referrals for appropriate follow-up care.

     

    All study-related tests and evaluations will be provided to you at no cost.
