Genetics overlap found between Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular risk factors

An international team of scientists, led by researchers at University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, have found genetic overlap between Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and two significant cardiovascular disease risk factors: high levels of inflammatory C-reactive protein (CRP) and plasma lipids or fats. The findings, based upon genome-wide association studies involving hundreds of… Genetics overlap found between Alzheimer’s disease and cardiovascular risk factors
