This report seeks to establish the prevalence of sleep apnea in patients with the fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) premutation with and without fragile X-associated tremor/ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) and to determine any correlation between CGG repeat and FMR1 mRNA levels with sleep apnea prevalence. Demographic and medical data from 430 (229 males, 201 females) participants were used in this analysis. Participants included premutation carriers with (n = 118) and without FXTAS (n = 174) as… CONTINUE READING
