Every 22nd of the month is 22q@ZooWorld2!

Because of the way our understanding of the 22q11.2 deletion evolved, several different names continue to be used for what we now know to be the same condition. These older terms include DiGeorge syndrome (DGS), velo-cardio-facial syndrome (VCFS), conotruncal anomaly face syndrome (CTAF), Opitz G/BBB syndrome, and Cayler cardiofacial syndrome. Genetically speaking, there is no detectable difference in the microdeletions found in people with VCFS versus those with DGS or the other related syndromes. Individuals with these diagnoses all have the same underlying condition: the 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. The Foundation aims to bring us all together by educating the public and professionals about the deletion’s many names.


22q11 Deletion Syndrome is one of 7,000 rare diseases.

Hey Zookeepers!

Every 22nd of the month is 22q@ZooWorld2!

For this month’s awareness day – We would like to introduce the Global Genes Project because World Rare Disease Day happens this year on Feb 28 – March 1st (on years with a leap day it is Feb 29th).  Global Genes Project’s primary mission is to increase rare disease and genetic awareness worldwide and empower a vibrant rare disease community. The organization works to increase public and physician education, builds community through social media and is working to fund innovative ways to increase rare disease research.

Visit the Global Genes Project Fan Page for more information here: http://bit.ly/GlobalGenesProject

Some interesting facts:  http://globalgenes.org/rarefacts/

“30 million people in the United States are living with rare diseases. This equates to 1 in 10 Americans or 10% of the U.S. population. Similar to the United States, Europe has approximately 30 million people living with rare diseases. It is estimated that 350 million people worldwide suffer from rare diseases.”

22q11 Deletion Syndrome is one of 7,000 rare diseases.

For this month’s awareness day – Dr. Jack Routes, a clinical immunologist/physician scientist at the Medical College of Wisconsin described one major focus of his research was to develop and then implement an inexpensive, sensitive and specific test that would identify newborn infants with 22q.11.2. He went on to describe that he, along with Dr.Aoy Mitchell had indeed developed such a test and that the next step would be nominating this inexpensive option to the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Heritable Disorder in Newborns and Children.
