A New Target to Slow Alzheimer Disease? Alan R. Jacobs, MD Researchers led by scientists at the Indiana University School of Medicine have discovered an immune system gene associated with higher rates of amyloid accumulation in patients with Alzheimer disease and in older adults at risk for Alzheimer disease. Five hundred subjects underwent amyloid PET scan imaging at baseline, and again after 2 years. A genome-wide analysis then identified genetic variance associated with the rate of plaque accumulation over the 2-year window. In addition to finding the expected *APOE* e4 gene varian...mais »
