According to researchers, children who carry the APOE4 gene and who are exposed to air pollution have higher behavior problem scores and their attention capacity was slower to develop.
ApoE4, a gene associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease, also appears to increase susceptibility and the severity of COVID-19. SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for coronavirus, increased susceptibility to COVID-19 in ApoE4 neurons and astrocytes in brain organoid models.
Exercise helped to reduce cognitive decline two years later in Parkinson's patients with the APOE e4 gene variant.
According to a new study, keeping mentally active can help stave off symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, but does not change the underlying disease in the brain.
A gene variant responsible for vascular damage to the brain is a promising new target for drug therapy to fight...
A new study reveals carriers of the ApoE4 gene who have chronic inflammation are more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease.
Stem cell study reveals astrocytes carrying the Alzheimer's associated APOE4 gene release more cholesterol than those carrying the APOE3 gene. Findings shed light on how different versions of the APOE gene in astrocytes influence amyloid-beta production and how the oversupply of cholesterol associated with APOE4 astrocytes may promote amyloid-beta formation in Alzheimer's patients.
Researchers report a link between a lower BMI and greater deposits of amyloid plaques in older individuals.
Researchers are testing a new vaccine and oral medication that could delay or prevent Alzheimer's disease from developing in those with a genetic predisposition.
