ApoE E4 is a susceptibility factor in amnestic but not aphasic dementias

Alzheimer Disease and Associated Disorders

Feb 25, 2011

Emily RogalskiMarek-Marsel Mesulam

Abstract

The goal of this study was to determine if the apolipoprotein ε gene, which is a well-established susceptibility factor for Alzheimer disease (AD) pathology in typical amnestic dementias, may also represent a risk factor in the language-based dementia, primary progressive aphasia (PPA)....read more
