We're sorry. This audio clip is no longer available.

We wrap up our weeklong series on Down Syndrome with news of clinical trials getting underway in San Diego. They could help lead to better cognitive function.

There's a link to Alzheimer's disease. Also, public policy and how one woman in Washington is helping researchers locally.

For more information on participating in the local clinical trial call 858-657-8540. Online at UC San Diego Down Syndrome Center for Research and Treatment
