Meta-analysis confirms CR1, CLU, and PICALM as alzheimer disease risk loci and reveals interactions with APOE genotypes.

OBJECTIVES To determine whether genotypes at CLU, PICALM, and CR1 confer risk for Alzheimer disease (AD) and whether risk for AD associated with these genes is influenced by apolipoprotein E (APOE) genotypes. DESIGN Association study of AD and CLU, PICALM, CR1, and APOE genotypes. SETTING Academic research institutions in the United States, Canada, and… CONTINUE READING
