What is the cause of edward's syndrome?

What is the cause of edward's syndrome?

Defective transfer: When eggs/sperm form they go through a process where the pairs of chromosomes split. Each resulting egg or sperm should only have one of the pair. When /if an egg or sperm fails to drop one or part of the chromosome 18, it will have excessive material once conception occurs. That extra material interferes with normal development. ...Read more

What's the incidence of edward syndrome?

What's the incidence of edward syndrome?

One in 6, 000: Edwards syndrome occurs in around one in 6, 000 live births and around 80 percent of those affected are female. The majority of fetuses with the syndrome die before birth. The incidence increases as the mother's age increases. The syndrome has a very low rate of survival, resulting from heart abnormalities, kidney malformations, and other internal organ disorders. ...Read more

What is the mode of inheiritance for edward's syndrome?

What is the mode of inheiritance for edward's syndrome?

Chromosomal: Edwards syndrome is usually due to trisomy 18 (extra copy of chromosome #18) that is an accidental occurrence with low recurrence risk (<1%) to the parents. Occasionally a translocation is found and the parents need testing to see if they have a balanced translocation (no symptoms) with higher recurrence risk. ...Read more

Is edward's syndrome autosomal or sex-linked? Dominant or recessive?

Is edward's syndrome autosomal or sex-linked? Dominant or recessive?

None of the above: Edward syndrome is brought on by an abnormality of chromosome numbers, specifically an extra 18. The abnormal egg with a single chromosome 1-17 & 19-22 + x has a pair of 18's. When the sperm brings a single chromosome 1-22 + x or y then the embryo ends up with 47 chromosomes rather than 46 in every cell. (3-18's) the excess distorts the organ building information & defects arise. ...Read more

What to do if I think my friend has munchausen syndrom. How do I confront her or her family?

Who is in danger?: If this is munchausen's by proxy -- an adult injures or sickens a child or lies, all in order to get them admitted to the hospital -- phone child protective services and fill out paperwork on them. If this is simply a person who is so desperate as to seek warmth by pretending to be sick, the family is probably already dysfunctional and drama is unlikely to help & may be disastrous -- be a friend. ...Read more

I want to reduce the chances of my future children inheriting asperger's syndrom. I am a 30-year-old male with no kids. So, how much time do I have?

No one knows: Asperger's syndrome is not known to be inherited though genes are thought to play a role. If you are referring to a heightened incidence with an advanced fathers age autism is the full spectrum condition that has been connected to advancing age. Rule of thumb: men's genetic mutations double every 16 yrs. So sooner is better than later. ...Read more

Are there new blood test to detect down's syndrom!!?

Trisomy 21: Certainly a blood test can be used to see if a person has Down syndrome. This is called a karyotype and it is widely available.

A better question, which I think you are asking, is if a blood test can determine if a fetus has Down syndrome. This is not widely available, and it is under development:
