How convenient this should show up this week, confirming what anti vaxxers deny:

'Angelman syndrome is caused by the loss of a maternally inherited Ube3a gene at the 15q11-q13 locus, which is expressed in brain neurons. Loss of the same chromosomal region inherited from the male parent causes another neurodevelopmental condition, Prader-Willi syndrome.'
"What determines whether you have Prader-Willi syndrome or Angelman syndrome is whether the maternal or paternal gene is missing,"

Not sure though it's a great idea to give cancer treatment to these children to un-silence the genes.
Vaccines R A FARCE

How convenient you show what a moron you are every time you post. Explain WHY these genes are lost. Just saying they are or that they are shut down doesn't prove vaccines didn't do it. These children are not babies and are not checked at birth. Day one most babies get a nasty hepb vaccine so how can anyone know thats not the reason. OH you way however denial, typical pro-vac/Pharma response.

Hello, in 1965 Harry Angelman discovered the chromosome/Gene/neuron, that causes Angelman syndrome. The syndrome happens while the brain is developing. there was nothing that would or could have changed the path of this child future. This did not happen at birth by a "nasty hepb vaccine". NOW IF THERE IS A TREATMENT TO OFFER A PERSON WITH ANGELMAN, HALALUHA!!!!!!!!!! ANDYTHING WE CAN DO FOR OUR CHILDREN TO GIVE THEM THE BEST POSSIBLE QUALITY FOR THEIR LIFE . WHY NOT, THEY DESERVE THE BEST
