  Purpose

The specific aim of this study is to compare ocular movements abnormalities between males with pre-mutation on FRM1 gene (symptomatic or asymptomatic on the motor plan and/or on the cognitive plan), males without the pre-mutation and males with multi-systematized atrophy, in order to identify the neuronal structures implicated in this pathology.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of the oculo-motricity of patients with FMR1 pre-mutation with the oculo-motricity of patients without FMR1 pre-mutation [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Comparison of the oculo-motricity of patients with FMR1 pre-mutation with the oculo-motricity of patients with multi-systematized atrophy [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Analysis of the correlation between the genotype (number of CGG repetition) and the phenotype. [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • For subjects with FMR1 pre-mutation, comparison of the neuro-psychological test results to the oculo-motor abnormalities. [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 27
Study Start Date: June 2008
Study Completion Date: September 2009
Primary Completion Date: September 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Patient will be followed at the Nantes hospital during half a day for :

  • examination of ocular movements
  • performing Neuro-psychological test (MATTIS)
  • performing tests with scales of motricity (UPDRS, CRST, ICARS).
