Latest Apolipoprotein E Stories
Scientists at the Gladstone Institutes have enhanced our understanding of how a protein linked to Alzheimer's disease keeps young brains healthy, but can damage them later in life—suggesting new research avenues for treating this devastating disease.
Persistent depression symptoms may be associated with significantly greater declines in cognitive performance in older patients with coronary artery disease who underwent cardiac catheterization.
A recent study showed that the protein beta-amyloid which is found in the brain and associated with Alzheimer's disease may even affect the mental function in healthy individuals.

One of our genes is apolipoprotein E (APOE), which often appears with a variation which nobody would want to have: APOEε4, the main genetic risk factor for sporadic Alzheimer's disease (the most common form in which this disorder manifests itself and which is caused by a combination of hereditary and environmental factors).
If you had a family history of developing Alzheimer's disease, would you take a genetic test that would give you more information about your chances?
