Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Are caused by chomosomal abnormalities Genetic Diseases Named after John Langdon Down who described the syndrome in the late 1800.
One out of every 700 births are born with Down Syndrome.
Down Syndrome is characterized by having 1 extra chromosome on set 21, hence the name, Trisomy 21. Children with Down Syndrome have specific physical features, such as:
small chin, eye fissures,enlarged
tongue, etc.
They may also exhibit other issues, such as, infertility, thyroid disease, stunted growth, slower cognitive function.
Adults with Down's can go on to secondary schools and can work as adults.
Life expectancy is about 50 years old.
It has increased dramatically over the last 20 years. People with Down Syndrome are valued and important members of our community. Down Syndrome Down Syndrome
Video PROGERIA Sickle - Cell Disease Hemophilia Cystic Fibrosis is a disease that is that attacks the red blood cells.
Sickle Cell only affects certain ethic groups. is a disease in which that affects less than 100 people in the world. Children with Progeria age 8 times faster than normal. Children have come a long way recently, and the life expectancy has increased substantially in the last few years. This is a recessive disorder, which means that both parents must pass on the defective gene for any of their biological children to get the disease. If a child inherits only ONE copy of the faulty gene, he or she will be a carrier. Carriers don't actually have the disease, but they can pass it on to their children. is a genetic disease in which the blood doesn't clot. It is inherited on the X chromosome. Hemophilia almost always occurs in males since the gene can be passed from mother to son, and a son lacks a second X chromosome to make up for the defective gene. Girls, on the other hand, are likely to be carriers of hemophilia but unlikely to actually have the disorder. In order to have hemophilia, girls must have the abnormal gene on both X chromosomes - a very rare occurrence.

Though most hemophiliac cases are inherited, it is possible for someone to acquire the condition through a spontaneous genetic mutation. It can also develop if the body forms to clotting factors in the blood that prohibit the clotting factors from working. antibodies
