Featured NIH Clinical Trials on Klinefelter Syndrome
Androgen Treatment's Influence on Development
This study is examining androgen's effects on learning and development in boys with KS. Researchers are also checking whether giving low-dose androgen treatment at an early age brings the largest benefits in motor function, including muscle strength, motor response speed, simple repetitive movement, and complex non-repetitive motor action. The research is supported by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
Adolescents and Adults Adapting to Their KS
To give a clearer sense of how males with KS conceptualize their condition, cope with their diagnosis, and adapt, this study, supported by the National Human Genome Research Institute, gives a framework for measuring such changes in teens and adults.
