This is a study aimed at knowing why XLH affects growth and what would be the best treatments to improve growth in this disease.
The project proposes to address this issue, of high clinical interest for patients, using an animal model of XLH, the Hyp mouse, since it requires microscopic examination and bone and cartilage growth imaging techniques, which is not feasible in humans.
It implies the continuity of a consolidated research line of the group that has resulted in articles in high impact journals and wide international dissemination. It requires for its realization a high time of dedication to it, the acquisition of Hyp mice and laboratory expenses.
Funding is required for the hiring of research personnel capable of carrying out the study.
