Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia in the elderly and affects more than 6 million Americans. It is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by the neuropathologic findings of amyloid plaques containing β-amyloid and neurofibrillary tangles in the brain. AD is a complex and heterogeneous disease, influenced by many genetic and environmental factors. One of the well-characterized genetic factors are mutations in the Apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene. Alzheimer’s disease is a genetically heterogeneous disorder and some of the well characterized mutations are in the Apolipoprotein E (APOE), APP, PRNP, PSEN1, PSEN2, SORL1 and TRME2 genes.

Alzheimer's Disease DNA tests 7 gene variations involved in nine key biological processes, which are all key factors in the onset of chronic disease.
