Risk factors and parent's knowledge related to Down syndrome: A retrospective study

Down syndrome or Trisomy 21 is the most common chromosomal abnormality. It is caused by chromosomal malfunction during the meiosis process. Some parents are more likely to have a child with Down syndrome. Risk factors include advancing maternal age and carrying the Down syndrome genetic translocation. Treatments are based on each individual's physical and intellectual needs as well as his or her personal strengths and limitations. Medical treatment can be used to treat illnesses including seizure disorders, hypothyroidism, and juvenile leukemia. Several studies investigated possible risk factors for Down syndrome and sex chromosomal aneuploidy. In the current study a simple random sample will be utilized to choose participants based on inclusion criteria for this study, and all people who agree to participate will be included in the study. A questionnaire will be used by the research team to collect data. Data monitoring, safety considerations, handling complications, samples disposal, and hazardous materials have been examined.
