All people with thalassemia are susceptible to health complications that involve the spleen (which is often enlarged and frequently removed) and gallstones.  These complications are mostly found in thalassemia major and intermediate patients. Individuals with beta thalassemia major usually present within the first two years of life with severe anemia, poor growth and skeletal abnormalities during infancy. Untreated thalassemia major eventually leads to death, usually by heart failure; therefore, birth screening is very
Each chromosome in the DNA strand has a job or task that helps the body function, for chromosome 18 its job is to make proteins. When the chromosome 18 has three copies instead of two, then Edwards syndrome is formed. Edwards syndrome or trisomy 18 is the second most common trisomy disease with trisomy 21 being the most common. In every 5,000 babies born 1 will be born with Edwards syndrome. More than 20 to 30% of the infants that make it to full term will die within the first week to month.
About 420,000 childhood cancer survivors live in the U.S., with much more around the world (St. Jude Children 's Research Hospital) this shows that cancer is one major diagnosed disease found in children under the age of 15. Cancer patients will have long-lasting chronic conditions during treatment. Plus 0.35% of children get cancer and is always being overlooked. Childhood cancer research is vastly and consistently underfunded. Childhood cancer is the leading cause of death by disease in children under the age of 15 in the U.S.One in 285 children in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer by the time they are 20 years old.Every year, an estimated 250,000+ new cases of cancer affect children under the age of 20 worldwide.Two-thirds of
The cause of death is usually diarrhea, but behind it is acute deficits of necessary micronutrients. About 2 million children die from pneumonia. Antibiotics to treat it cost 27 cents a dollar. Their families lack them. In total, 18 million people die each year from poverty-related causes.
Whooping Cough known as pertussis. It is an infection in the respiratory system that’s caused by the bacterium Bordetella (Kids Health, 1995-2015). In 1906, Octave Gengou and Jules Bordet discovered the bacteria Bordetella pertussis, and found a vaccine to stop the disease before it actually occurred. The first outbreak took place in the 16th century. Before they were able to discover such vaccine to cure whooping cough, well over 250,000 cases of whooping cough per year in the U.S., with 9,000 reported deaths (Medicine Net, 1996-2015).
It cost money to get the egg donor to use when organ cloning. It also cost money to actually the process which limit the amount the scientist can try therapeutic cloning. If there was a more funding for the research for therapeutic cloning than the limits on it will increases. There are many advantages to organ cloning. The first advantage is one that have to state before it was replacement of internal organs or tissues for patients.
The cervix is one of the least common sites in genitourinary tract.We report a case of Cervical Rhabdomyosarcoma who was misdiagnosed as Vaginal RMS and was started on chemotherapy. We had to do an emergency excision of the mass,when she developed excessive bleeding per vaginum. Keywords Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcomas,Cervical Rhabdomyosarcomas, Background Rhabdomyosarcomas are malignant skeletal muscle tumors and account for about 50% of soft tissue sarcomas in children. The Intergroup Rhabdomyosarcoma Study Group divided it into three major histologic subtypes: Embryonal(ERMS), alveolar, and undifferentiated. The most common sites include head and neck(35%),extremities, trunk, retroperitoneum.
After this stage, there is a risk for arrhythmia or sudden death due to heart failure. Question 3 So far it has been discovered that all ethnic groups are at risk of Danon disease since it is a rare genetic disease that only 20 families in the world where found to have it. The prevalence could however be estimated at less than 1 in 1000 000. Question 4 The gene that is involved here is X-linked dominant. Therefore, males experience a more severe case than females as the X chromosome in males is only one, whereas in females there are two X chromosomes.
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited life-threatening disorder that damages the digestive system and the lungs, this diseases shortens life span as well. There is also the fact that genetic testing is very expensive. If you do not have insurance that will cover the cost of genetic testing it will be very expensive. So I think there should be some type of help for those who can 't afford genetic testing, if not make genetic testing cheaper. Gene testing lets some use genetic test to change the gender of their baby.
In 2010, an estimated 7.6 million children over 20,000 per day died of starvation. 6. Hunger problem exists mostly in underdeveloped countries. Hunger could be transmitted from mother to child. Every year, million of children are born underweight because their mothers are also
