NIH Rare Diseases:43 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: Alzheimer Disease Type 2, also known as late onset familial alzheimer disease, is related to alzheimer's disease and lewy body dementia. An important gene associated with Alzheimer Disease Type 2 is APOE (apolipoprotein E), and among its related pathways are Validated transcriptional targets of AP1 family members Fra1 and Fra2 and Notch Pathway. The drugs galantamine and selegiline and the compounds bleomycin and h2o2 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain and endothelial, and related mouse phenotypes are limbs/digits/tail and respiratory system.
