Down syndrome and Alzheimer’s research—find ways to connect

e-Update from the Alzheimer's Disease Education and Referral Center, a service of the National Institute on Aging at N I H

Many, but not all, people with Down syndrome develop Alzheimer’s disease when they get older. There are several ongoing research studies and clinical trials exploring the link between Down syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease. For Down Syndrome Awareness Month, learn more about research opportunities for people with Down syndrome by:
  • Joining DS-Connect®, a voluntary, confidential, online registry from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. You, your legally authorized representative, or your guardian can submit information about your health and choose to be contacted about research opportunities.
  • Searching the National Institute on Aging’s Alzheimer’s disease clinical trials finder.
  • Looking at the National Down Syndrome Society’s directory of studies.
  • Visiting NIH’s “Clinical Research Trials and You.”
