Comprehensive Klinefelter Syndrome Research Study at Stanford

Boys with Klinefelter Syndrome are invited to participate in a NIH-funded research study designed to increase our understanding of learning, behavior, genetics and brain development. Currently recruiting boys ages 4 to 10 with XXY karyotypes not currently receiving testosterone treatment.

Participation involves a 2 day evaluation including:

  • Comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation
  • Blood test (for genetic analysis)
  • Structural and functional MRI scan (to examine brain development and function)

Potential benefits of participating:

  • Written report providing results of neuropsychological evaluation
  • Access to ongoing updates about the outcomes of the study
  • Opportunity to help researchers develop new treatment studies to improve cognition and learning in boys with Klinefelter syndrome

Families will receive a $100 honorarium for participation

Local and long-distance travel arrangements will be made by Stanford research staff, so there will be no travel or lodging costs to families for participation.
