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

Spectacles for Patients With Down Syndrome

Individuals with Down syndrome suffer from significant ocular complications including high levels of lower-order refractive error (sphere and cylinder) and elevated levels of higher-order aberrations. These optical factors likely contribute to the poor acuity observed in this population. Current clinical prescribing practices may under-serve this community, as the cognitive demands ...

Phase N/A

Strategies for Teaching Verbs

This study is designed to evaluate whether children with Down syndrome and children with typical development exhibit different levels of accuracy demonstrating novel verbs taught under three conditions: semantic cues (perform action), syntactic cues (sentence frame), and combined (syntactic and semantic cues). The participants complete an eligibility evaluation and then ...

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

Nicotine Treatment of Cognitive Decline in Down Syndrome

Over 50% of adults with Down Syndrome (DS) develop Alzheimer's disease (AD) by the age of 60 (Nadel 2003), and life expectancy in DS is now 50-60 years. Thus, age-associated cognitive impairment and dementia in older adults with DS is an urgent public health concern. The investigators propose that nicotinic ...

Phase

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 ...
