Researchers discover genetic variants that increase the risk of Alzheimer’s

Boston University researchers on Thursday announced a groundbreaking discovery about a gene associated with the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. This risk is linked to the APOE4 gene, which destroys brain cells if a person carries the gene. It puts them at higher risk of developing the disease, although inheriting the gene doesn’t necessarily mean someone …
