IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES
March 9, 2000
Mr. Edwards (for himself, Mr. Hagel, Mr. Robb, Mrs. Boxer, and Mr.
Kerrey) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the
Committee on the Judiciary
Designating July 17 through July 23 as ``National Fragile X Awareness
Whereas Fragile X is the most common inherited cause of mental retardation,
affecting people of every race, income level, and nationality;
Whereas 1 in every 260 women is a carrier of the Fragile X defect;
Whereas 1 in every 4,000 children is born with the Fragile X defect, and
typically requires a lifetime of special care at a cost of over
Whereas Fragile X remains frequently undetected due to its recent discovery and
the lack of awareness about the disease, even within the medical
Whereas the genetic defect causing Fragile X has been discovered, and is easily
identified by testing;
Whereas inquiry into Fragile X is a powerful research model for neuropsychiatric
disorders, such as autism, schizophrenia, pervasive developmental
disorders, and other forms of X-linked mental retardation;
Whereas individuals with Fragile X can provide a homogeneous research population
for advancing the understanding of neuropsychiatric disorders;
Whereas with concerted research efforts, a cure for Fragile X may be developed;
Whereas Fragile X research, both basic and applied, has been vastly underfunded
despite the prevalence of the disorder, the potential for the
development of a cure, the established benefits of available treatments
and intervention, and the significance that Fragile X research has for
related disorders; and
Whereas the Senate as an institution and Members of Congress as individuals are
in unique positions to help raise public awareness about the need for
increased funding for research and early diagnosis and treatment for the
disorder known as Fragile X: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That the Senate--
(1) designates July 17 through July 23 as National Fragile
X Awareness Week; and
(2) requests that the President issue a proclamation
calling upon the people of the United States to observe
National Fragile X Awareness Week with appropriate recognition
