1.Lovastatin corrects ERK pathway hyperactivation in fragile X syndrome: potential of platelet's signaling cascades as new outcome measures in clinical trials.
Pellerin D1, Çaku A1, Fradet M1, Bouvier P1, Dubé J1, Corbin F1. Biomarkers. 2016 Apr 8:1-12. [Epub ahead of print]
AIM: To establish whether platelets from fragile X syndrome (FXS) individuals recapitulate FXS mouse neurons' defects in ERK and Akt pathways, and to evaluate the effect of lovastatin on these pathways.
2.A randomized placebo-controlled lovastatin trial for neurobehavioral function in neurofibromatosis I.

OBJECTIVE: Lovastatin has been shown to reverse learning deficits in a mouse model of Neurofibromatosis Type 1 (NF1), a common monogenic disorder caused by a mutation in the Ras-MAPK pathway and associated with learning disabilities. We conducted a randomized double-blind placebo-controlled trial to assess lovastatin's effects on cognition and behavior in patients with NF1.
