Help us defeat dementia in Down’s syndrome – Published by University of Cambridge

A team at University of Cambridge are looking at Dementia in people with Down’s syndrome. They are looking at a chemical called Amyloid in the brains of people with Down’s syndrome. They think that this chemical might cause memory problems, and they would like to know more about how it does this in people with Down’s syndrome.

Their long term objective is to understand why people with Down’s syndrome are at risk for memory problems so that safe treatments can be developed that might prevent the development of Alzheimer’s disease in people with Down’s syndrome, and in the general population.

If you have Down’s syndrome or know someone with Down’s syndrome over the age of 40, who might be interested to hear more about this study,  please contact the team using the link below.
