Alzheimer's disease (AD) and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) share several epidemiological and biochemical features. The present study aimed to assess the possible influence of the AMD-associated complement factor H (CFH) Y402H (1277T > C) polymorphism on the risk of AD. Caucasian subjects (n = 800) meeting the criteria for probable (n = 717) or definite (n = 83) AD and Caucasian non-demented controls (n = 1265) were included in this multi-center case-control study, in which genotype and… CONTINUE READING
