Abstract

Apo-E genotype was not significantly related to cognitive performance in 157 Alzheimer's disease patients. However, patients homozygous for the ε4 allele appeared most impaired on global cognition but least impaired on language measures. Further study with larger samples may reveal that Apo-E genotype accounts for some of the variability in cognitive deficits observed in Alzheimer's disease.
