    Down's syndrome has an incidence of about 1·3 per 1000 births. Antenatal testing for this disorder on the basis of maternal age has been common practice (increasing age is associated with increasing risk of having an affected pregnancy). Since the late 1980s it has been possible to calculate...

    To gain further knowledge on the preclinical phase of Alzheimer's disease (AD), we sought to characterize cognitive performance, neuroimaging and plasma-based AD biomarkers in a cohort of non-demented adults with down syndrome (DS). The goal of the down syndrome biomarker Initiative (DSBI) pilot...

    Background: Adjusting maternal serum markers for maternal weight is considered to be a standard practice when screening for pregnancies associated with Down's syndrome. The choice of model for taking maternal weight into account is, however, rarely explicitly evaluated. Method: The relationship...
