Fourteen years ago when David was born we were very anxious. We worried about everything. We wondered what the future held for our David and for us. We need not have worried, David has turned into quite a character as you can see from his photos. David's Nana used to say: "Are you sure he has Down's syndrome he seems so normal?" Medical research is starting to come to that same conclusion concerning all of our children. The latest evidence indicates that a few extra genes are causing an upset to the way that the body functions and this is causing elevated oxidative stress and this results in cell damage. Antioxidants are the logical response to this problem and the DSRF is initiating medical research to find the best antioxidants and the correct dose rates.

    Down Syndrome
    What is Down syndrome?
    Down syndrome is a relatively common birth defect caused by the presence of an extra chromosome number 21 (three instead of two number 21 chromosomes, or, trisomy 21). This chromosome abnormality adversely affects both the physical and intellectual development of the individual. What are some of the features of Down syndrome?
    Down syndrome causes mental retardation, a characteristic facial appearance, and multiple malformations. It is associated with a major risk for heart malformations, a lesser risk of duodenal atresia (part of the small intestines is not developed), and a small but still significant risk of acute leukemia What is the nature of the chromosome abnormality?
    The chromosome abnormality that causes Down syndrome is trisomy 21, an extra copy of chromosome number 21. This means that instead of having the normal 2 copies of chromosome number 21, the person with Down syndrome has 3 copies of chromosome number 21. Confirmation requires a chromosome study (analysis under the microscope of the chromosomes).

    Measurements for Down Syndrome
    Earlier parameters used included the actual to expected FL ratio the BPD/FL ratio . More recently the nuchal translucency thickness is used in detecting Down syndrome fetuses. In Down syndrome both the femur and the humerus tend to be shortened. The expected FL = -9.645 + 0.9338 x BPD If the ratio is below 0.84 the likelihood of Down syndrome is higher. The BPD/FL ratio should be established for each individual population, and it’s value varies with gestation. The mean +1.5 SD is usually used as the cutoff level. GA (weeks) - BPD/FL ratio# Positive predictive value 1/294 for the general population ( normally 1/1000 )
    and 1/112 for maternal age over 35 (normally 1/270). The BPD/FL ratio and the nuchal skin fold thickness can be used in conjunction with the maternal age incidence to arrive at a new probability for the occurrence of Down syndrome in a particular fetus. The nuchal translucency thickness is the thickness of the skin fold behind the nape of the neck. In chromosomal abnormalities this may be thickened due to venous or lymphatic engorgement. In the measurement of the nuchal skin fold thickness, critical landmarks should include the cavum septum pellucidum, the cerebral peduncles and the cerebellar hemispheres. Calipers are placed from the outer skull table to the outer skin surface. Percentage of Down syndrome fetuses with nuchal fold >6 mm after 16 weeks vary from 69% (Benacerraf 1991) to as low as 3.8% (Grandjean 1995) in different reports. A mean value of about 50% can be obtained from different reports.

    D own Syndrome Named after John Langdon Down, the first physician to identify the syndrome, Down syndrome is the most frequent genetic cause of mild to moderate mental retardation and associated medical problems and occurs in one out of 800 live births, in all races and economic groups. Down syndrome is a chromosomal disorder caused by an error in cell division that results in the presence of an additional third chromosome 21 or "trisomy 21." T he Chromosomal Basis of Down Syndrome To understand why Down syndrome occurs, the structure and function of the human chromosome must be understood. The human body is made of cells; all cells contain chromosomes, structures that transmit genetic information. Most cells of the human body contain 23 pairs of chromosomes, half of which are inherited from each parent. Only the human reproductive cells, the sperm cells in males and the ovum in females, have 23 individual chromosomes, not pairs. Scientists identify these chromosome pairs as the XX pair, present in females, and the XY pair, present in males, and number them 1 through 22.

    One-Hour Down Syndrome Screenings
    PHILADELPHIA, May 20, 2004
    (Photo: AP / CBS)
    "Older women will very much be interested in this screening. But since most Down syndrome babies are being born to women under 35, there's a good argument that it should be available to everyone."
    Dr. Stuart Weiner
    (AP) A Philadelphia hospital says it is the first in the nation to offer pregnant women a two-test combination that tells them within an hour after its completion whether their baby has Down syndrome.
    The new screening at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital involves a first trimester blood test and an ultrasound and can have test results for Down's syndrome within one hour and as early as 10 weeks into the pregnancy. The first trimester test typically requires a one-week wait for results.
    Doctors say the faster turnaround time should give anxious mothers-to-be peace of mind sooner, or allow them more time to decide whether to end the pregnancy. For women who would not consider abortion, prenatal screening still is important because babies with Down syndrome, the most common chromosomal birth defect, can need specialized care at delivery that affects hospital choice.

    The Down's Baby Creed
    My face may be different but my feelings are the same.
    I laugh and I cry and take pride in my gains.
    I was sent here among you to teach you to love,
    As God in the Heavens looks down from above. To Him I'm not different, His love knows no bounds.
    It's those here among you in cities and towns,
    That judge me by standards that man has imparted.
    But this family I've chosen will help me get started For I'm one of the children, so special and few, That came here to learn the same lessons as you. That love is acceptance, it must come from the heart; We all have a purpose though not the same start. The Lord gave me life to live and embrace, And I'll do it as you do but at my own pace.
    What is Down Syndrome?
    Down Syndrome is a genetic abnormality where a person has an "extra" 21st chromosome (also known as Trisomy 21). There are three types of Down Syndrome: Trisomy 21 (standard), Mosaicism, and Translocation . The most common is Trisomy 21. The risk for a Down Syndrome child increases with a woman's age, however, Down Syndrome children are born more often to younger women (due to the fact younger women have more children).

    Yoga for babies and children with special needs down syndrome, autism, attentiondeficit disorder, ADHD, cerebral palsy and learning disabilities.
    Down syndrome is a congenital disability with an overall incidence of one in every 700 births. The incidence of Down syndrome in children born to 25 year old mothers is approximately 1 in 1200; the risk increases to approximately 1 in 350 for 35 year olds and approximately 1 in 120 for women older than 40 years. The chromosomal abnormality involved in most cases of Down syndrome is trisomy 21. As a result, the affected person has 47 chromosomes in all body cells, instead of the normal 46. Persons with Down syndrome are shorter than average, with truncated limbs. Some other common characteristics of Down syndrome include an epicanthic fold of skin extending from the eyelid over the inner canthus of the eye, strabismus (crossed eyes) and hypotonia (low muscle tone). Motor development is slow; and instead of walking by 12 to 14 months as most children do, children with Down syndrome usually learn to walk between 15 to 36 months. Language and cognitive development are also significantly delayed. The majority of children with Down syndrome function in the mild to moderate range of mental retardation. In addition to these delays, children with Down syndrome are also susceptible to certain medical problems, including: congenital heart defects; increased susceptibility to infection; respiratory problems; obstructed digestive tracts and childhood leukemia. Yoga poses (asanas) help to stretch, tone and strengthen the entire body. Asanas also benefit the internal organs and help to balance and revitalize the endocrine glands. For this reason children with Down syndrome who practice yoga stay slim and flexible, while those who do not practice yoga tend to put on weight as they age. In conjunction with yogic breathing exercises, which have a beneficial effect on the central nervous system, asanas facilitate the development of body awareness, concentration and memory vital skills for any child with a developmental disability.
