    ..001). The HCI is associated with three levels of genetic risk for late-onset AD. This supports the possibility of using a single FDG PET measurement to help in the preclinical detection and tracking of AD. ..

    ..Our results suggest that the APOE-epsilon4 allele is a significant factor in the development of CAA in AD and reveal the possibility that APOE is an independent factor in CAA and other vascular abnormalities associated with AD. ..

    ..Thus, epilepsy is linked with a biomarker that might be related to accelerated brain aging and can be considered a neurobiological predisposition to later-life cognitive disorders. ..

    ..NCT00818662. This study provides Class II evidence that IVIg infusions performed every 2 weeks do not improve cognition or function at 18 months in patients with mild to moderate AD. ..

    ..Anosmia is common in older adults, particularly among blacks. Further studies are needed to identify risk factors for anosmia and to investigate racial disparities in this sensory deficit. ..
