Emory’s Sharron Close Started Clinic for Patients with X & Y Chromosome Variations

AXYS Editor’s Note: AXYS was excited to see this article in the Atlanta Business Chronicle. Dr. Close serves as the chair of the AXYS Professional Advisory Committee and her Atlanta clinic was one of the original clinics in the AXYS Clinic & Research Consortium (ACRC). Her dedication and insight into X and Y variations was already well-known in the community and the guidance that she provides the AXYS organization is invaluable.

New Oral Testosterone Drug

A group of people representing AXYS and the Klinefelter Syndrome community traveled to Washington,
DC in early January 2018 to provide public comments at an FDA hearing related to the approval of a new
oral testosterone drug called Jatenzo.

The Clarus drug company has developed this oral pill as an alternative for men that require testosterone
replacement therapy (TRT). Currently the only options for TRT involve the use of gels, patches, injections
or pellet implants. All of these options have different challenges and difficulties that can cause some
men to become frustrated and stop following their recommended replacement plan. This can lead to
multiple physical and emotional difficulties for some KS individuals. We believe an oral alternative would
be easier for many people and would help them start and continue their TRT programs.
