In recent years, researchers have made significant progress in understanding
factors that may modify the risk of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
Known genetic risk factors include mutations of the presenilin 1 (PS1), presenilin
2 (PS2), and amyloid precursor protein (APP) genes and the apolipoprotein
E (APOE) ε4 allele. The relatively uncommon PS1, PS2, and APP mutations
cause a form of the disorder typically characterized by dementia onset
before the age of 60 and autosomal dominant inheritance.
