The Chromosome 22 Central is a non-profit, voluntary health organization registered in both the U.S. and Canada dedicated to networking families of individuals affected by abnormalities of chromosome 22. There are several disorders that may result due to abnormalities of chromosome 22 such as deletion (monosomy), duplication (trisomy), or translocation of chromosomal material from the 22nd chromosome. The symptoms and physical features associated with such disorders depend upon the exact length, location, and nature of the specific chromosome 22 abnormalities in question. Established in 1998, Chromosome 22 Central provides international networking opportunities that enable affected families to exchange information, resources, and mutual support; offers a registry for those affected by chromosome 22 disorders; and links affected families with researchers.
