EPSRC : Lauren Johnston : EP/R513349/1 Girls with Turner syndrome (TS), a chromosomal condition in which a female has complete or partial absence of the second sex chromosome, present a unique group of patients, with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Mortality rates are three times higher in TS women compared with the general population, and life expectancy is reduced by up to 13 years - the most common cause of death being from cardiovascular disease. Children with TS also have a greater underlying predisposition to obesity, which is found to increase with age. Since the mid 1900s extensive research has led to advancements in the treatment of Turner ...
