Feeding and Autoimmunity in Down’s Syndrome evaluation study (FADES)

Feeding and Autoimmunity in Down’s Syndrome evaluation study (FADES)

The study is led by Professor Julian Hamilton-Shield, Dr Kathleen Gillespie and Dr Georgina Williams, and will be based at University of Bristol and University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust. We are collaborating with the Down’s Syndrome Association and Down’s Syndrome Scotland.

The study will investigate early feeding in babies and children with Down’s Syndrome. We are looking for new parents willing to complete a questionnaire about their child’s feeding and health as a young baby and at six and twelve months. We will also ask about the child’s health yearly after this until the age of five.  Thank you for your interest in our study.
