  • Title: What is Fanconi anemia? | Fanconi Anemia Research Fund
    Descriptive info: What is Fanconi anemia?.. Fanconi anemia (FA) is one of the inherited anemias that leads to bone marrow failure (aplastic anemia).. It is primarily a recessive disorder: if both parents carry a defect (mutation) in the same FA gene, each of their children has a 25% chance of inheriting the defective gene from both parents.. Scientists have now discovered 15 FA or FA-like genes.. These genes account for over 95% of all known FA patients.. Some patients do not appear to have mutations in these 15 genes, so we anticipate that additional FA genes will be discovered in the future.. FA occurs equally in males and females.. It is found in all ethnic groups.. The current median lifespan for a patient with FA is  ...   patients are extremely likely to develop a variety of cancers and at a much earlier age than patients in the general population.. Patients who have had a successful bone marrow transplant and are therefore cured of the blood problem associated with FA still must have regular examinations to watch for signs of cancer.. For more information about Fanconi anemia, view our.. FA Fact Sheet.. what is the fanconi anemia research fund?.. Lynn and Dave Frohnmayer started the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund, Inc.. in 1989 to find effective treatments and a cure for Fanconi anemia and to provide education and support services to affected families worldwide..
