Just released: Bone Health surveillance recommendations for individuals with SATB2-associated syndrome (SAS) have been published in the American Journal of Medical Genetics. Given the risk of bone fracture, low bone mineral density, abnormal markers for bone formation and resorption, and other bone-related biomarker abnormalities, individuals with SAS have bone health risks that warrant unique bone health screening recommendations. Specific recommendations can found in the full paper, which can be accessed through our Resource Portal.
The SATB2 Gene Foundation is pleased to have been able to financially support this research through our annual Research Grant Program and are very grateful to Dr. Yuri Zarate and the research team for their hard work!
