DOWN SYNDROME 2020

About the Conference

Conference series LLC LTD is hosting Down syndrome 2020 inviting all the participants from all over the globe to the World Congress on Down syndrome, Autism & Cerebral Palsy, scheduled during July 22-23, 2020 at Melbourne, Australia with a theme “Let’s stand up for Down syndrome and focus on abilities not disabilities”.

Down syndrome 2020 is going to furnish an outstanding program for exchange of ideas and authentic vision by Worlds leading Scientists, Doctors and Researchers covering the entire spectrum of research in Neurological and Psychological syndromes and diversified involvement of various treatments Down Syndrome 2020 is the leading annual meeting of Neurologists, Geneticist, Psychiatrists and psychological committees to discuss the future of Gene Therapy and Neurology in terms of the advancement and development in the field.

Sessions/Tracks

Track 1- Down syndrome

A genetic disorder where an abnormal cell division takes place and results in full or partial copy of chromosome 21 also known as trisomy 21 which causes an underdeveloped mental and physical features.

Track 2- Down syndrome signs and symptoms

Person with Down syndrome have physical as well as intellectual disabilities the also have poor immune system and their physical and mental development  is slow as compared to the normal people, They have a huge risk of other health problems such as epilepsy, thyroid diseases, congenital heart disease, leukaemia, tumour and blood cancer.

Track 3- Down syndrome and Epilepsy

It is a neurological disorder, in which nerve cell activity in the brain is disturbed, causing seizures. Epilepsy may occur as a result of a genetic disorder or an acquired by brain injury.

Track 4- Congenital Heart Disease in Down syndrome

Congenital heart disease among Down syndrome is around 40% and above 80% of people have ventricular septal defect, atrioventricular septal disease as well as mitral valve problem.

Track 5- Cancer in Down syndrome

People with Down syndrome have a risk of developing cancer from germ cells which can be blood or non-blood related. The risk of testicular cancer and blood cancer is more which also includes acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) and acute megakaryoblastic leukaemia (AMKL).

Track 6- Endocrinology in Down syndrome

20-50% of people with Down syndrome suffer with thyroid gland problem; congenital hypothyroidism is the most common form of low thyroid within the individual resulting in Type 1 diabetes mellitus, autoimmune hypothyroidism and Grave’s disease.

Track 7- Fertility

Females with Down syndrome are fertile and do ovulate but also they get earlier menopause, about 35-50% of Down syndrome mothers gave birth to children have trisomy21 and other disabilities. Whereas males with Down syndrome have poor fertility as the suffer problem with sperm production and development and generally do not father children.

Track 8- Chromosomal Translocation and Trisomy 21

Down syndrome is caused by having three copies of genes on chromosome 21 also known as mosaic Down syndrome which can also give rise to Robertsonian translocation, isochromosome or ring chromosome, these contain an additional genomic material from chromosome 21.

Track 9- Epigenetics and its mechanism

The study of heritable phenotypic changes that involve modification in the DNA sequence is called epigenetics such as DNA methylation and histone modification.

Track 10- Screening and Diagnosis

Down syndrome can be screened by amniocentesis or chronic villus sampling, blood testing, ultrasound (measures nuchal translucency), Quad screening (measures the maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein, unconjugated estriol, HCG and inhibin-A) Cell-free foetal DNA (blood sample of the foetus is collected by venipunture and DNA analysis is done)

Track 11- Down syndrome management and Prognosis

Down syndrome management can be done by health screening in a systematic way and cognitive development by hearing aids, Speech therapy, sign language, augmentive and alternative communication methods.

Down syndrome also depends upon the medical problem faced and complications, earlier children born with Down syndrome had a life span of 9 years but now due to the advance medical technologies and quality of life have increased their life span up to 55 years and many lived even longer.

Track 12- Down syndrome Prevention

Down syndrome can be prevented by consulting a genetic counsellor before becoming pregnant and discussing about the risk factor but ultimately the condition cannot be prevented.

Track 13- Autism or Autism spectrum disorder

Autism is caused due to both the combination of genetics and environment, Autism is highly variable neurodevelopmental disorder whose symptoms first appears during infancy, this is distinguished by a traid of symptoms like trouble with social interaction, impaired communication, restricted interests, repetitive behaviour.

Track 14- Autism and its causes

Autism has a strong genetic basis it is explained more by mutation, Exposure to air pollution during pregnancy, especially heavy metals and particulates, may increase the risk of autism. Maternal nutrition inflammation during preconception and pregnancy influences foetal neurodevelopment.

Track 15- Screening and Diagnosis of Autism

Since there is no medical test like a blood test, etc. to diagnose the disorders. Doctors look at the child's behaviour and development to make a diagnosis.

Track 16- Autism Management and Prevention.

Autism management can be done by health screening in a systematic way and cognitive development by hearing aids, Speech therapy, special education, augmentive and alternative communication methods and services should be carried out by behaviour analyst, speech pathologist and licensed psychologist.

Track 17- Cerebral palsy and its cause

It’s a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone or posture, cerebral palsy affects body movement and muscle coordination, reflex, balance and it is caused due to brain injury or brain malformation that occurs while the brain is at its developing stage i.e., before, during, or after birth.

Track 18- Cerebral palsy diagnosis and management

Cerebral palsy is diagnosed by checking family history and physical examination, early diagnosis and intervention works wonders in case of managing cerebral palsy as it is a developmental disability. There are many preventive interventions that have been investigated. The method Electronic foetal monitoring helps to prevent cerebral palsy.
