Catalase (CAT) -262 C/T promoter (rs1001179), cathepsin D (CTSD) exon 2 (rs17571), and apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene polymorphisms were studied in 242 patients with sporadic Alzheimer's disease (AD) and 421 unrelated age-, sex-, and ethnically matched control subjects from Apulia (Southern Italy). No statistically significant differences in CAT rs1001179 and CTSD rs17571 genotype and allele distribution between AD cases and healthy controls were observed for the whole AD sample, and when AD… CONTINUE READING
