We are currently recruiting for a biosensors study taking place at Boston Children’s Hospital to test two biosensors on individuals with Rett syndrome. The purpose of the study is to identify objective measures for symptom improvement in clinical trials. Your participation could help revolutionize how we test the effectiveness of treatments for Rett.
This study involves one in-person visit to the Boston Children’s Rett Clinic followed by four weeks of at-home data collection with a wearable biosensor patch and a freestanding device that is placed in the home. The biosensor patch will be worn two days a week for four weeks. The freestanding device will collect data whenever the individual with Rett is nearby; for this study we are collecting overnight data, so it will be in the child's room. Caregivers will answer questions electronically each day of the four-week period about their child’s sleep, anxiety, and seizures. At the end of the four-week observation period, the biosensors will be mailed back to Boston Children’s Hospital and parents can get a report of their child’s biosensor data.
This study is currently enrolling a small number of participants. To be eligible, you must be able to travel to Boston Children’s Hospital and have a daughter diagnosed with Rett syndrome confirmed by a genetic mutation in the MECP2 gene. Additional requirements apply. To be contacted by a research coordinator for the study to determine your eligibility, sign up below.
