LATEST REGISTRY REPORT
Download the latest quarterly report here. The goal of this report is to share up-to-date data contributed by families. Building off the last report, the team used the Quality of Life Inventory to ask caregivers to describe how their family member with PACS1 responds to life experiences. This survey and other important tasks are located on your dashboard. Participating in surveys is very important to the longevity of our study. Your unique experience could hold the clues that scientists need to find answers for you and others with rare genetic disorders. If you want to be included in future reports, join Simons Searchlight today!

To view past registry reports go to the bottom of this page and click on the dropdown menu tab labeled “Previous Registry Reports.”

GeneReviews

GeneReviews are a great resource to bring to your child’s clinicians. These publications provide a summary of current research on genetic conditions and information on ongoing care. Check out the GeneReviews for PACS1.

Research Article Summaries

Below, we have summarized research articles about changes in the PACS1 gene. We hope you find this information helpful. The information available about PACS1 is limited, and families and doctors share a critical need for more information. As we learn more from children who have a change in this gene, we expect this list of resources and information to grow.

Full versions of published research articles can be found on PubMed. PubMed is a National Institutes of Health (NIH) online database that is free. It has a collection of both medical and scientific research articles. A PubMed search for PACS1 articles can be found here. You can also visit the Simons Foundation’s SFARI Gene website to see information for researchers about this gene.
