TERAPIA TEMPRANA PRENATAL DEL SÍNDROME DE DOWN

Líneas de Investigación / Terapia Temprana Prenatal de Síndrome de Down

El Síndrome de Down o trisomía 21, es una enfermedad genética causada por la presencia de un cromosoma adicional en el par 21. Los efectos de este cromosoma adicional causan diferentes trastornos que van desde cambios en las características físicas de las personas que lo padecen, hasta alteraciones neurológicas, discapacidad intelectual y trastornos cardiovasculares, entre otros.

 

En MELISA Institute estamos investigando terapias no invasivas novedosas que permitan mejorar in utero de manera temprana las alteraciones que produce este cromosoma adicional.
