The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry is committed 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.​​​
