英文摘要:

Objectives: To describe the distribution of apolipoprotein E (APOE) genotypes among an elderly Chinese patient population with memory complaints treated in a memory clinic in Beijing and to compare the epsilon 4 allele frequency among individuals with subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and Alzheimer′s disease (AD).

Methods: A total of 385 subjects with memory complaints participated in the study, including 216 patients with AD, 56 with MCI, 17 with SCI, and 96 with other types of cognitive impairment. A total of 75 healthy elderly control subjects were also recruited. The polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) technique was used to investigate the APOE genotypes.

Results: The frequency of the epsilon 4 allele was 19.6 percent for the entire sample of patients who had memory complaints. The APOE allele distribution differed between women and men (22.6% and 14.9%, respectively; p<0.05) in the individuals with memory complaints. Compared with the control group (7.3%), the prevalence of the APOE epsilon 4 allele was significantly higher in the AD (23.6%) and MCI (21.4%) groups and was slightly increased in the SCI (14.7%) group.

Conclusions: In the memory clinic, we observed a higher prevalence of the APOE epsilon 4 allele among Chinese AD and MCI patients. A similar trend was observed in patients with SCI. These findings suggest that nondemented APOE epsilon 4 allele carriers with memory complaints may have a greater genetic risk for AD and should be monitored more closely.
