Phase N/A

Purpose of the study: This research seeks to understand how Down syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease may affect a person’s memory and thinking as they get older. The goals of this longitudinal project are: to follow neurological, learning and memory changes in adults with Down syndrome as they age; to examine ...

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

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

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

Digital Dysmorphology Project

In this study, investigators propose a novel method to detect Down syndrome using photography for facial dysmorphology, a tool called computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) . Local texture features based on Contourlet transform and local binary pattern are investigated to represent the facial characteristics. A support vector machine classifier is then used ...

Phase N/A

Rocky Mountain Alzheimer's Disease Center Longitudinal Biomarker and Clinical Phenotyping Study

This study plans to establish a large bank of blood, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), imaging, and clinical data. These data and samples will be used for future research into the causes of Alzheimer's disease (AD), Down Syndrome (DS) and other diseases that cause thinking and memory problems. This future research ...

Phase N/A

Early Detection and Treatment of Respiratory Sleep Disorders in Children With Down Syndrome

Interventional, comparative, open label, single-center study to demonstrate that an early (from 6 months of age) and systematic (every 6 months) screening of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) by polysomnography (PSG) in children with Down Syndrome during the first 3 years of life is associated with an improved neurocognitive development at ...

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 ...
