Cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) is associated with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD) and might contribute to the relationship between apolipoprotein E ε4 (APOEε4) and LOAD, in older people. However, it is unclear whether CSVD begins in middle age in individuals genetically predisposed to LOAD. Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

Dementia is a major public health issue with rising prevalence rates, but many individuals remain undiagnosed. Accurate and timely diagnosis is key for the optimal targeting of interventions. A noninvasive, easily measurable peripheral biomarker would have greatest utility in population-wide diagnostic screening. Epigenetics, including DNA methylation, is implicated in dementia; Read & Research Alzheimer’s More
