Some time ago I was asked to write about the parent's view of medical research for DSRF UK (Down Syndrome Research Foundation).
Although of course we don't want our children altered, heaven forbid that 70s trend of facial plastic surgery for cosmetic purposes, we all want to enhance their lives as much as possible for as long as possible.
This is where Down Syndrome Research Foundation step in, with research into the use of vitamin supplements for example and more laterly, trials into medication that might improve concentration, memory and delay Alzheimers. Read about the current trial by Roche here.
