An international group of researchers has identified 11 new genes that offer important insights into the disease pathways involved in Alzheimer’s disease. The researchers identified the genes by analyzing previously studied and newly collected DNA data from 74,076 older volunteers with Alzheimer’s and those free of the disorder from 15 countries. The new genes add to a growing list of gene variants associated with onset and progression of late-onset Alzheimer’s.
