Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal 18 new loci associated with body mass index
18 new loci associated with body mass index are identified, one of which includes a copy number variant near GPRC5B, and genes in other newly associated loci may provide new insights into human body weight regulation.

These studies indicate that analyses of the caudate nucleus in grade 4 would reflect mainly its astrocytic composition with a component of remote neurons projecting to the striatum, which would reflect early cellular and biochemical changes in HD.
Effects of Age, Sex, and Ethnicity on the Association Between Apolipoprotein E Genotype and Alzheimer Disease: A Meta-analysis
The APOE∈4 allele represents a major risk factor for AD in all ethnic groups studied, across all ages between 40 and 90 years, and in both men and women.
Effects of age, sex, and ethnicity on the association between apolipoprotein E genotype and Alzheimer disease. A meta-analysis. APOE and Alzheimer Disease Meta Analysis Consortium.
It is found that the APOE epsilon4 effect is evident at all ages between 40 and 90 years but diminishes after age 70 years and that the risk of AD associated with a given genotype varies with sex.
Large-scale meta-analysis of genome-wide association data identifies six new risk loci for Parkinson’s disease
A meta-analysis of Parkinson's disease genome-wide association studies using a common set of 7,893,274 variants found four loci, including GBA, GAK-DGKQ, SNCA and the HLA region, contain a secondary independent risk variant.
A novel gene containing a trinucleotide repeat that is expanded and unstable on Huntington's disease chromosomes
Association analyses of 249,796 individuals reveal eighteen new loci associated with body mass index
Genetic loci associated with body mass index map near key hypothalamic regulators of energy balance, and one of these loci is near GIPR, an incretin receptor, which may provide new insights into human body weight regulation.
CAG repeat number governs the development rate of pathology in Huntington's disease
The results imply that striatal damage in Huntington's disease is almost entirely a lineaar function of the length of the polyglutamine stretch beyond 35.5 repeats, and it is predicted that the pathological process develops linearly from birth.

The features of brains from patients with CAA that are most consistently related to cerebral hemorrhage are a severe degree of CAA and the presence of fibrinoid necrosis, with or without microaneurysms.
