To clarify how Alzheimer disease pathology develops in the brains of nondemented subjects, we examined the interrelations among the amounts and morphology of Abeta deposition, neurofibrillary pathology, and apolipoprotein E (ApoE) genotype in the frontal association cortex of 101 autopsy brains from patients aged between 40 to 83. Senile plaque density correlated well with the logarithmic data of insoluble Abeta measured by enzyme immunoassay (EIA). The amounts of Abeta42-ETA increased… CONTINUE READING
