The serious and growing impact of the neurodegenerative disorder Alzheimer's disease (AD) as an individual and societal burden raises a number of key questions: Can a blanket test for Alzheimer's disease be devised forecasting long-term risk for acquiring this disorder?

NOD2 functions in concert with the autophagy protein ATG16L1, which is also implicated in Crohn disease. Recently, we identified a novel protective role of ATG16L1 deficiency in(More)
