1. Genetic characteristics of dementia in Taiwan.
Match Strength: 10.451
The most common causes of dementia in Taiwan are Alzheimer's disease (AD) followed by vascular dementia (VaD). Several genetic studies have documented an increased risk of AD among apolipoprotein E gene allele 4 (ApoE4) carriers in Taiwanese (ethnic Chinese). Although ApoE4 is considered the most important risk factor for AD, the ApoE4 allele frequency is lower in Taiwanese (around 7%), than that in most Caucasian populations (over 10%). This phenomenon raises the hypothesis that low ApoE4 allele frequency contributes to the low prevalence of AD in Taiwanese. Other studies of the genetic ... Read More »
