Olfaction in People with Down Syndrome: A Comprehensive Assessment across Four Decades of Age
Olfactory function is overall severely impaired in DS people and may be globally impaired at relatively young age, despite of reportedly normal smell.
Ageing and Olfactory Dysfunction in Trisomy 21: A Systematic Review
Olfactory dysfunction in an individual with trisomy 21 commences at a relatively young age and affects the three olfactory domains, threshold, discrimination, and identification, which are suggested to be impaired in trisome 21 participants with age > 30 years old.
Development of Down Syndrome Research Over the Last Decades–What Healthcare and Education Professionals Need to Know
This mini-review provides a concise update on existent information about the heterogeneity of DS from a full-spectrum developmental perspective, within an interdisciplinary context to enable professionals to enhance the quality of prenatal counseling and help parents to set targeted early interventions.
Health of Children 3 to 17 Years of Age With Down Syndrome in the 1997–2005 National Health Interview Survey
OBJECTIVE. This study provides population-based estimates of recent medical conditions, concurrent developmental disorders, and health impact and utilization indicators for US children with and

The anatomy and physiology of this primary sensory system are reviewed, means of assessing its function, and major diseases and disorders with which it is intimately associated are reviewed.

Analysis of Adult Cerebral Cortex and Hippocampus Transcriptomes Reveals Unique Molecular Changes in the Ts1Cje Mouse Model of Down Syndrome
Functional analyses in Ts1Cje mice highlighted the importance of NFAT signaling, oxidative stress, neuroinflammation and olfactory perception via G‐protein signaling and physiologically relevant pathways that can serve as targets for the development of future treatments to improve neurocognition in Down syndrome.


Prevalence of olfactory impairment in older adults.
It is demonstrated that prevalence of olfactory impairment among older adults is high and increases with age, and self-report significantly underestimated prevalence rates obtained by olfaction testing.
Olfactory function in young adolescents with Down's syndrome.
Tests of odour discrimination and identification suggest that Down's syndrome related olfactory dysfunction occurs only at ages when Alzheimer's disease-like pathology is present, and that these findings, along with those from studies of Olfactory function in older patients with Down’s syndrome, suggest that this issue isomersally related.

Olfactory Deficits in down Subjects: A Link with Alzheimer Disease
Considering the similarity between the neurodegenerative brain pathology exhibited by Alzheimer patients and Down subjects and a recent observation that the former show pathological changes also in the olfactory epithelium (neuritic plaques and neurofibrillary tangles), these two Olfactory tasks could represent a useful noninvasive diagnostic method.
Cilia ultrastructure in children with Down syndrome.
This study is the first to be carried out to determine if cilia ultrastructure abnormalities are prevalent in the population with Down syndrome, and four of 10 patients had documented cilia abnormalities, but these were present in the background of normal cilia, suggesting that they were the result rather than the cause of chronic sinusitis.
