Author information

Joseph and Kathleen Bryan Alzheimer's Disease Research Center, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina 27710-2900, USA.


Our understanding of the etiologies of the Alzheimer diseases is advancing rapidly, led by the discovery of relevant genetic mutations for autosomal-dominant forms of the disease and widespread confirmation of the role played by apolipoprotein E, the major susceptibility gene for the common form of Alzheimer's disease. New hypotheses are being generated and old hypotheses are being modified to account for the wealth of new information.
