PXE International launches Ideation Challenge at Innocentive
Evaluating hypotheses and suggesting experiments for a rare disease

PXE International (the Seeker) recently launched an Ideation Challenge seeking evidence favoring one of two prevailing hypotheses for the cause of pseudoxanthoma elasticum (PXE). Is PXE's phenotype caused primarily by an active circulating metabolite, or a tissue-specific dysfunction? Seeker desires some representative evidence, correlative data, or other testable theorem of which the Innocentive worldwide Solver community may already be aware that can effectively advance ABCC6 transmembrane research for PXE.
