  1. This study joins a recent report from Australia (Laws et al., 2005) that associates variations in a single nucleotide that affect TNF-alpha (a single nucleotide polymorphism, or SNP) with the risk of developing Alzheimer disease. These studies, together with the recent report from the associated groups from the University of Washington and UC Davis (Ramos et al., 2006) provide further clinical evidence suggesting that TNF-alpha may be involved in AD pathogenesis.
