Challenge

Dup15q syndrome is a rare genetic disorder caused by a duplication of chromosome 15q11.2-13.1. Individuals with this disorder often have autism, seizures and global developmental delays. Parents have a difficult time finding information and medical care specific to dup15q due to it's rarity. Dup15q Alliance provides education and support for those affected by dup15q and encourages research and targeted treatments.

Solution

15q clinics provide comprehensive health care for individuals with dup15q syndrome. Physicians collaborate to create the best evaluation and treatment protocols. These clinics are working to standardize care to share with local physicians. They serve as a platform for clinical research that will increase research and publications, and add important clinical data that can impact treatments. Our goal is to provide the opportunity for the best quality of life, while striving for future treatments.

Long-Term Impact

With focused evaluation and treatment of individuals with dup15q syndrome, more will be learned about this rare disorder. We will improve the lives now of those dealing with dup15q now with more effective therapies and diagnostic tools. Our hope is that clinicians and bench scientists will one day be able to create targeted treatments for dup15q syndrome.
