AMYLOID BURDEN AND CORTICAL ATROPHY IN NON-DEMENTED DOWN SYNDROME

      The triplicate copy of amyloid precursor protein gene (APP; chromosome 21) in Down syndrome (DS) genetically predisposes adults with DS to over production of amyloid-β (Aβ) leading to increased Aβ plaque deposition and a higher prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and dementia. Patterned localization of Aβ plaques are a hallmark of AD. This study investigated the relationship between co-localized Aβ deposition and cortical atrophy in non-demented adults with DS.
