Brief description Children with Saethre-Chotzen syndrome exhibit premature fussed coronal sutures, and other skull/ skeletal malformations. Surgical intervention is the only treatment option to ensure optimal cognitive and skeletal development. Our studies have identified a candidate molecular pathway that regulates bone formation by cranial bone cells from these patients. Targeting these key molecular signalling components with chemical inhibitors will help prevent the premature fusion of cranial sutures.
