Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene
...w, robust tools may eventually allow us to improve our
ability to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease, even before it strikes” To date, the most significant gene found to predispose an individual to late onset Alzheimer’s (LOAD) has been APOE4. In this latest study, researchers from seven organizations contr...
