Background: There is evidence that iron may play a role in the pathology of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). There may be genetic factors that contribute to iron deposition resulting in tissue damage thus exacerbating AD. Methods: We have genotyped 269 healthy elderly controls, 191 cases with definite or probable AD, and 69 with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) from the OPTIMA cohort. Results: We have examined the interaction between the C2 variant of the transferrin (TF) gene and the C282Y allele of… CONTINUE READING
