We previously characterized associations between brain imaging measurements of amyloid-β (Aβ) plaque burden and apolipoprotein E (APOE) ϵ4 gene dose in a small number of cognitively unimpaired late-middle-aged APOE ϵ4 homozygotes (HMs), heterozygotes (HTs), and noncarriers (NCs). We now characterize cross-sectional Aβ plaque, tau tangle, and cortical atrophy (neurodegeneration) measurements, Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

Some Alzheimer’s disease biomarker studies found amyloid changes 20 years or more in advance of expected symptoms, while cognitive changes lagged for more than a decade, but this apparent lag might reflect the sensitivities of the biomarker and cognitive assays used. How far in advance of incident amnestic mild cognitive impairment Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

Hispanics/Latinos are the largest ethnic/racial group in the United States and at high risk for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia (ADRD). Yet, ADRD among diverse Latinos is poorly understood and disparately understudied or unstudied compared to other ethnic/racial groups that leave the nation ill-prepared for major demographic shifts that lay Read & Research Alzheimer’s More
