10] Some cross-sectional studies evaluated the effect of the APOE genotype on dementia [14],[61],[66],[73],[83],[84],[85],[86] and concluded that APOE gene expression might be correlated with the development of cognitive decline of PD.
In conclusion, the results of our study suggested positive association of a specific ApoE genotype and onset of non-lesional temporal lobe epilepsy.
This study designed to substantiate the association of APOE genotype allele frequencies with myocardial infarction and their relation with lipid levels.
of Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, and his colleagues conducted the REVEAL (Risk Evaluation and Education for Alzheimer's Disease) trial to assess participants' anxiety and depression levels and behavioral change after disclosure of the association of CAD with APOE genotype during genetic testing for AD because of the dearth of research into the harms and benefits of revealing incidental genomic findings to the patient (Ann Intern Med.
We also tested for association of controls, MCI or AD with caffeine SNP, age, gender, years of education and APOE genotype with a classification and regression tree (CART).
ApoE genotype accounts for the vast majority of AD risk and AD pathology.
Finally, it has been recently shown that the strength of neuronal stress response is highly linked to the APOE genotype, pointing out the relevance of the APOE genotyping for treatment decisions [18].
Additional findings showed that in a subset of patients for which ApoE genotyping was available, ApoE genotype was not a predictor of conversion from mild cognitive impairment to Alzheimer's disease dementia.
These intriguing findings highlight the importance of systematically monitoring cognitive symptoms in elderly individuals with depression and the need for larger studies to clarify the potential role of the APOE genotype in mediating the relationship between depressive and cognitive symptoms in the elderly.
This association in women remained robust in further analyses that adjusted for a history of stroke, age, education, and APOE genotype status.
