The main result is the lower HDL-C level in individuals with DS than in the ID group, suggesting a modification in the lipid profile whose origin would lie in genetic alterations. However, further researches are important to analyze if there is any link between trisomy 21 and the reduction o...

This study was carried out to assess the incidence and association of aberrant right subclavian artery in North Indian population and to analyse its significance as a marker of Down syndrome and to formulate an adaptable protocol for counselling and management of such pregnancies. A prospective assessment of 1024 consecutive unselected pregnancies with gestational age between 12 and 34 weeks was carried out from May 2016 to August 2017 at the author’s fetal medicine centre in North India.
