A recent genome-wide study on late-onset Alzheimer's disease identified a SNP (rs5984894) on Xq21.3 in the PCDH11X gene strongly associated with LOAD individuals of European descent from the United States. We genotyped the same polymorphism in 1222 cases and 938 controls from central-northern Italy and could not confirm the association on the Italian population: multivariate logistic regression adjusted for gender and APOE ε4 allele resulted in a global p value of 0.56. © 2010 - IOS Press and the authors.

Abstract

A recent genome-wide study on late-onset Alzheimer's disease identified a SNP (rs5984894) on Xq21.3 in the PCDH11X gene strongly associated with LOAD individuals of European descent from the United States. We genotyped the same polymorphism in 1222 cases and 938 controls from central-northern Italy and could not confirm the association on the Italian population: multivariate logistic regression adjusted for gender and APOE ε4 allele resulted in a global p value of 0.56. © 2010 - IOS Press and the authors.
