BACKGROUND angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene insertion/deletion (indel) polymorphism is considered a biomarker for Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the associations of ACE gene and protein level to AD are undetermined among Taiwanese. METHODS this study investigated 257 Taiwanese cases with AD and 137 ethnically matched controls using ACE gene indel genotype association methods with logistic regression adjusted for other variables. Besides, 65 out of 257 AD patients, 11 with D/D… CONTINUE READING
