ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a randomized controlled trial (RDC) on asymptomatic adults who have a parent with Alzheimer disease to study the increase in short-term anxiety or depression with disclosure of their own apolipoprotein E (APOE) genotype. Before deciding whether to participate in the trial, all participants had blood drawn for genotyping. The trial showed that short-term anxiety or depression des not increase with disclosure of their own apolipoprotein E genotype.

    The apolipoprotein E ( APOE) is a well-established risk factor for late-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD). Several studies have attempted to confirm the association between the polymorphism located at position −491 in the transcriptional regulatory region of the APOE gene and AD. We examined...

    Background and Aims: Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common form of dementia among the elderly, is a progressive, degenerative disorder of the brain with a loss of memory, behavior and cognition. The APOE4 allele is the only established risk factor in the development of AD. However, as the...

    The authors investigated whether apolipoprotein (apo) E polymorphism has an allelic and/or genotypic impact on the risk of an ischemic vascular event (IVE) in Greek patients with cardiovascular diseases (CVD). They compared apo E polymorphisms in 1) a group of 165 patients with IVE [IVE(+)], of...

    Accumulation of β-amyloid (Aβ) in the brain is associated with memory decline in healthy individuals as a prelude to Alzheimer's disease (AD). Genetic factors may moderate this decline. We examined the role of apolipoprotein E (ɛ4 carrier[ɛ4+], ɛ4 non-carrier[ɛ4−])...

    Evidences have been gathered from several studies suggest that a mechanism involving an estrogen-signaling pathway may contribute to modulate risk for Alzheimer's disease. It was demonstrated that estrogen upregulates the expression of apolipoprotein E gene, which has a role in the metabolism of...

    Background: The apolipoprotein E (APOE) e4 allele has been reported to be a risk factor for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB). Previous neuropathological studies have demonstrated similar frequencies of the APOE e4 allele in AD and DLB. However, the few ante-mortem...
