TAKE ACTION: Ask Your Reps to Cosponsor the 21st Century Cures Act (H.R. 6)
The National Down Syndrome Society supports this bipartisan legislation because it will significantly improve the process for developing new treatments, diagnostics and tools for effective clinical trials related to people with Down syndrome. For example, the a lack of research on individuals with Down syndrome who have co-occurring psychiatric and medical conditions is a potential impediment to the development of clinical and behavioral treatments and interventions.
The 21st Century Cures Act will boost the efforts of our scientific, research and medical community to develop a number of potential treatments and interventions for people with Down syndrome, including cognitive delay, Alzheimer's disease, childhood leukemia, congenital heart disease, autism spectrum disorders, sleep apnea and epilepsy, to name a few.
