The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry
to informing its readers about the progress now being made in the scientific understanding, diagnosis, treatment,
and prevention of Alzheimer’s disease. With this
commitment in mind, the Journal
announces its plan to
publish from time to time special articles and sections as
part of a “Focus on Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders”
series. To inaugurate the series, this issue includes
a report in which Andreas Papassotiropoulos, M.D., and
his colleagues implicate a cluster of cholesterol-related
genes in the vulnerability to late-onset Alzheimer’s disease
and propose for subsequent research studies a
cholesterol-related genetic risk score to help characterize
an individual’s vulnerability to this disorder.
