Research Article Summaries

Below, we have summarized research articles about changes in the SETBP1 gene. We hope you find this information helpful.

The information available about SETBP1 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.

You can also visit the Simons Foundation’s SFARI Gene website to see information for researchers about this gene.
