A Possible "treatment"
User avatar #68 to #33 - RisenLichen ONLINE (04/01/2013) [-]
he put treatment in quotes because if he didn't all the scientists in FJ would've awoken and corrected him.

People with Down Syndrome have an extra chromosome, right?

So all we need to do is take that chromosome away, and they'll stop being down's syndrome.

Doctors ain't got **** on my logic.

seven sex mating system? how the hell does that work?
User avatar #45 to #43 - Visier (04/01/2013) [-]
Actually, only six of them are mating, the seventh is there to coordinate them.

Treatment for down syndrome? Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think it's the type of thing that can be treated, we'd be talking about removing an entire chromosome from every cell in the body, and not a mutated or unhealthy chromosome that could be tracked by antibodies, an identical healthy third chromosome in every single cell of the body, I don't know sounds impossible to me.
User avatar #26 to #23 - techketzer (04/01/2013) [-]
Now I have no particular knowledge about this, but here is what I assume.
When the specialized cells of the body die, they are replaced by stem cells dividing.
If you manage to get these stem cells into normal chromosome configuration, the entire organism will eventually consist of cells of this new, changed type.

Maybe that has nothing at all to do with this possible treatment, but curing Down's syndrom (or any other genetic disorder) is not categorically unthinkable.
User avatar #28 to #26 - largilloquent (04/01/2013) [-]
no knowledge huh, heres what i thought.

>down syndrome treatment might have been found

>me: could work
User avatar #38 to #26 - laphantom ONLINE (04/01/2013) [-]
Some specialized cells don't get produced after a certain age, for example brain cells. Stem cells are in hard to get at places sometimes like in bones which are impossible to all replace.
User avatar #63 to #38 - techketzer (04/01/2013) [-]
"Some specialized cells don't get produced after a certain age, for example brain cells"
That is wrong. Old information, I was taught that, too, once upon a time.
Tissues are sustained by regulated division of stem-cells.
Especially the brain has a load of very potent ones.

Also I did not say it's quick and easy, only that it is not categorically impossible and we simply lack the technology to pull it off yet.
User avatar #75 to #63 - laphantom ONLINE (04/01/2013) [-]
It would be far easier to change the bacteria in the body which can make you "evolve" as it seems. Long story short they can trigger genes which can make you fat/thin give you a strong heart/weak heart etc. So that would possibly be the way, the only problem with that is that once the bacteria go your body will go back to normal so you need to keep taking the bacteria.

Treatment=/=Cure
User avatar #52 to #23 - Scorch (04/01/2013) [-]
theoratically you could use a form of gene therapy in the first stages of the embryo's life
and like said before treatment does not equal cure, they probably found a way to (up to a certain point) prevent the faulty chromosome from coming to expression
User avatar #69 to #23 - RisenLichen ONLINE (04/01/2013) [-]
I think thats why treatment is in quotes..

Well it says treatment and not cure, so maybe the treatment helps with the mental deficiency? I mean there are "treatments" for autism, but autism hasn't been cured. But I could be wrong, I'm not very smart.
#54 to #35 - anon (04/01/2013) [-]
it says "treatment" because they accepted that hitler's treatment was the only way
