Understanding Fragile X better

Friday, 19 Feb, 12.05 am

Recently, Bollywood actor Boman Irani posted a video on his Instagram page, in which he spoke about something called the Fragile X Syndrome (FXS). In the video, the actor speaks about what Fragile X Syndrome is and about raising awareness about the syndrome. He ends the short video saying, 'I support Fragile X Syndrome awareness. You can help too! Join me, use the filter and support awareness. Let's pledge to tell 5 people about it today and help @shalinikedia and her team @fragillexindia.'

Not your typical X

For the unversed, Fragile X is the most common inherited, single-gene cause of intellectual disability and autism worldwide.
