AbstractA central characteristic of people with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) is an apparent insatiable appetite leading to severe overeating and the potential for marked obesity and associated serious health problems and premature death. This behaviour maybe due to the effects of the genetic defect resulting from the chromosome 15 abnormalities associated with the syndrome.
