Abstract

This article, the first of two parts, considers the link between Down's syndrome and Alzheimer's disease and how this link has been a significant factor with regards to research into the aetiology of Alzheimer's disease. It describes some of the suggested causes of Alzheimer's disease in people with Down's syndrome. The diagnosis, signs and symptoms of Alzheimer's disease are briefly discussed. The second article concludes with the implications of Alzheimer's disease in people with Down's syndrome for family careers, services and nurses.
