Gene associated with bad cholesterol linked to early-onset Alzheimer’s disease
Researchers in the US have linked high levels of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) to the risk of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. The scientific journal, JAMA Neurology, publishes the findings today (Tuesday 28 May).
In the study, researchers looked at the levels of cholesterol in the blood of people with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease and healthy volunteers.
The team found that people with elevated levels of LDL cholesterol, sometimes called ‘bad’ cholesterol, are linked to the risk of early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.
