Comparison of Bispectral Index Values in Patients With and Without Down's Syndrome

Based on the Valkenburg group's study (2009), one might hypothesize that if the BIS value is fixed for all patients, then a patient with an intellectual disability such as a patient with DS would require less anesthetic drugs compared to a control patient without any neurological disability. However, if one ...

Phase N/A

19/5000 (SYNAPSOT21) Predictive Factors of Sleep Apnea Syndrome in Down Syndrome

The predictive factors for OSA that will be studied are: physical activity level, dentofacial disharmonies, blood parameters, motor disabilities, heart rate variability parameters measured during sleep and during autonomic nervous stimulation by orthostatic test. All these factors will be linked to the data obtained by: polysomnography by the joint use ...

Phase N/A

Noninvasive Screening for Affected Pregnancies: Assay Development & Optimization in Affected Pregnancies

To collect samples for the purpose of developing and optimizing an in vitro noninvasive prenatal diagnostic (NIPD) test. The NIPD test employs circulating cell free (ccff) DNA extracted from whole blood samples collected from women who are pregnant with a fetus previously determined to have a chromosomal abnormality. The NIPD ...

Phase N/A

Pathogenesis of Acute Stress Induced (Tako-tsubo) Cardiomyopathy: Energy Shut-Down or Intense Inflammation?

The investigators aim to study the reciprocal modulation of fatty acids and glucose metabolism in the Tako Tsubo Cardiomyopathy physiology, in both humans and an animal model, and to investigate which metabolic pathway is preferentially adopted by acute Tako Tsubo Cardiomyopathy myocytes during this severe functional shut down with largely ...

Phase N/A

Development of Non-invasive Prenatal Screening Test for Microdeletions Based on Fetal DNA Isolated From Maternal Blood

The goal of this study is to further develop a non-invasive prenatal blood test that can diagnose genetic disorders in the fetus by looking at fetal DNA (genetic material) found in the mother's bloodstream during pregnancy. Women carrying a fetus diagnosed with microdeletions/microduplications (small missing or extra pieces of DNA ...

Phase N/A

The Crnic Institute Human Trisome Project Biobank

The purpose of this study is to provide qualified and approved researchers with access to biological samples and health information to answer specific research questions. This project will significantly increase the speed of Down syndrome research and the understanding of associated medical conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, congenital heart defects, ...

Phase N/A

Description and Modeling of Swallowing Disorders After a Stroke

The oropharyngeal junction participates in 3 interpenetrating functions: Swallowing, Breathing and Speech. In the context of ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, these are altered, isolated or associated manner, causing major disorders and representing a source of handicap for patients. Understanding the swallowing mechanisms is therefore a major challenge to guide the ...

Phase N/A

Whole Blood Specimen Collection From Pregnant Subjects

This sample collection protocol allows for the identification, recruitment, and participation in women who are pregnant and are known to: be at an increased risk for fetal genetic abnormalities be at increased risk for congenital fetal infection by virtue of being positive by initial screening tests, or are known to ...

Phase N/A

Neurocognitive and Psychosocial Outcomes in Survivors of Childhood Leukemia With Down Syndrome

The investigators will recruit survivors of childhood leukemia with DS to participate in a one-time assessment of neurocognitive and psychosocial functioning. Potentially eligible families will be identified via medical record review at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (SJCRH) and contacted to discuss study objectives, assess interest, and confirm eligibility. Eligible ...

Phase N/A

Specimen Collection From Pregnant Women at Increased Risk for Fetal Aneuploidy

To collect specimens for the purpose of developing a prenatal aneuploidy test. The test will analyze circulating cell free fetal (ccff) nucleic acid from blood samples from pregnant women who have an increased risk indicator/s for fetal chromosomal aneuploidy and are undergoing invasive prenatal diagnosis by chorionic villus sampling (CVS) ...
