US scientists say they have moved a step closer to being able to treat disorders caused by an extra chromosome.

They have "switched off" the chromosome that causes the symptoms of Down's syndrome in human cells in the lab.

The research, published in Nature, could one day lead to new medical treatments for the condition.

Woooot! Just please science leave their smiles. Never has anything brightened this world than a smile from a person whom has down syndrome.
