APOE4 gene and associated risk for Alzheimer's disease | Dale Bredesen
Apolipoprotein E (APOE), a lipoprotein produced in the liver and the brain, plays key roles in fat metabolism. Approximately 25 percent of people in the United States – roughly 75 million people – carry a genetic variant of this lipoprotein called APOE4, which is associated with higher circulating levels of LDL cholesterol and an increased risk for Alzheimer's disease. In this clip, Dr. Dale Bredesen describes the risks associated with APOE4 and identifies strategies for mitigating that risk.
