3 Genetic risk factors Other risk factors have become known due to the Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) in which large numbers of individuals are examined for common genetic variants to highlight any associations with the disease. Approximately 30 polymorphisms have been identified as significantly lowering or increasing the age of onset of sporadic AD. This includes proteins involved in immune function including CR (complement component (3b/4b) receptor ) and TREM2 (triggering receptor expressed on mye14 loid cells 2), and cholesterol metabolism and transport such as APOE, clusterin (apolipoprotein J), and ABCA7.

Further to this, an RXR agonist bexarotene has been shown to upregulate APOE and lipid transporters and to increase phagocytosis by macrophages and microglia, resulting in increased clearance of Aβ. 3 Genetic risk factors Other risk factors have become known due to the Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) in which large numbers of individuals are examined for common genetic variants to highlight any associations with the disease.
