The association of APOE genotype and cognitive decline in interaction with risk factors in a 65-69 year old community sample
BACKGROUND: While the evidence of an association between the apolipoprotein E (APOE) *E4 allele and Alzheimer's disease is very strong, the effect of the *E4 allele on cognitive decline in the general population is more equivocal. A cross-sectional study on the lifespan effects of the *E4 allele  failed to find any effect of the *E4 allele on cognitive performance at ages 20–24, 40–44 or 60–64 years.
