New genetic link for late onset Alzheimer's disease discovered

Mass. General researchers have found a region on human chromosome 10 that could harbor a genetic variant that powerfully predisposes people to develop late onset Alzheimer's disease. They have not yet identified the actual disease-predisposing variant; researchers have evidence it could be more potent than previously discovered risk factors.
