AAIC 2019 Alzheimer’s Imaging Consortium Talk on Amyloid in Down Syndrome

Individuals with Down syndrome (DS) have an increasing age-related prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). In DS, the triplication of amyloid precursor protein on chromosome 21 contributes to a life-long accumulation of brain amyloid. Dementia increases with age to over 75% … Continue reading
