What happened to my original question? If the moderator doesn't like the link he can always delete it and edit the end of my question.
Usually it is not ethically correct to find people with disease then refuse to treat them, so why would a survey that is currently being advertised (somewhere) for participants, be ethically correct when half the affected individuals will be given a placebo, but told they're taking testosterone?
The purpose of this study is to determine if testosterone replacement therapy leads to changes in psychological factors and/or motor skills in adolescent males with 47,XXY This study will also evaluate whether certain genetic factors of the X chromosome affect the psychological or motor features of XXY/Klinefelter syndrome.
The study will follow half the boys who'll be given testosterone by gel, and the other half a placebo gel, for 12 months.
There are no plans stated to evaluate the intelligence or social adaptation of the parents of these boys. The full description of the study can found here:
Patient Moderator Comment: I have reinstated the information and URL (a link) referring to the study into your new discussion.
