    Abstract Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) allele frequencies were examined in a population-based sample (n = 475; age range 65-84 years; Amsterdam Study of the Elderly). The relation of ApoE [sub epsilon]4 with dementia and with various types of late-life depression was studied. Depression was measured...

    Alzheimer's disease is a debilitating neurodegenerative disorder that afflicts an increasing part of our ageing population. An isoform of apolipoprotein E, a protein that mediates the transport of lipids and cholesterol in the circulatory system, predisposes carriers of this allele to the common...
