Taggart's Syndrome was a genetic disorder in humans discovered sometime prior to the mid 22nd century. There was no cure as of 2155, but it could be managed through the regular use of Rigelian gene therapy. Untreated, Taggart's Syndrome resulted in death by the age of twenty. John Frederick Paxton suffered from Taggart's Syndrome, and used the Rigelian gene therapy, despite his vocal opposition to human interaction with extraterrestrials. (ENT episode: "Terra Prime")
In an alternate timeline, Paxton gave up the Rigelian gene therapy following his incarceration and succumbed to Taggart's, making himself a martyr to his cause. (ST - Myriad Universes novel: A Less Perfect Union)
