As a part of the WHO Age-Associated Dementia Project, Chile has been participating in a cross-national survey on dementia frequency and determinants since 1989. In the present study, apolipoprotein E (ApoE) polymorphism genotypes have been compared in 95 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) (mean age 80.7; 95% CI 79.2-82.2, range 66-97) and 187 healthy people (mean age 78.2; 95% CI 77.2-79.2, range 65-93). Isoelectric focusing and immunoblotting with anti-human ApoE polyclonal antibody were… CONTINUE READING
