Summaries for Alzheimer Disease-2

About this section

NIH Rare Diseases:41 Alzheimer disease is a degenerative disease of the brain that causes gradual loss of memory, judgment, and ability to function socially. alzheimer disease currently affects about 5 million people. about 75 percent of alzheimer disease cases are classified as sporadic, which means they occur in people with no history of the disorder in their family. although the cause of these cases is unknown, genetic changes are likely to play a role. virtually all sporadic alzheimer disease begins after age 65, and the risk of developing this condition increases as a person gets older. the remaining cases of alzheimer disease are familial, which means they are found in multiple members of a family. familial alzheimer disease can be divided into early-onset disease (symptoms begin before age 65) and late-onset disease (symptoms begin after age 65). last updated: 7/2/2013

MalaCards based summary: Alzheimer Disease-2, also known as alzheimer disease type 2, is related to alzheimer disease and dementia, and has symptoms including dementia, parkinsonism and neurofibrillary tangles. An important gene associated with Alzheimer Disease-2 is APOE (apolipoprotein E), and among its related pathways are Alzheimer's disease and A-beta Uptake and Degradation. The drugs galantamine and selegiline and the compounds thioflavine s and metrifonate have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, and related mouse phenotype other.
