Genotype patterns at PICALM, CR1, BIN1, CLU, and APOE genes are associated with episodic memory
Neurology®, 05/21/2012Barral S et al.
Multilocus genotype patterns (MLGPs) provide an alternative analytical approach to predict an individual's genetic risk for episodic memory performance, a surrogate indicator of late–onset Alzheimer disease (LOAD). Identifying genotypic patterns contributing to the decline of an individual's cognitive performance may be a critical step along the road to preclinical detection of Alzheimer disease.
