However, the prevalence of AD is much less than 100% even by age 50 [56]. Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) and other genes. It is now known that some earlyonset cases of AD are caused by single genes [57]. The genes identified at this stage are mutations of the b-amyloid precursor gene on chromosome 21 and of the presenilin genes on chromosomes 1 and 14. However, these genes account for only a small percentage of AD cases. The vast majority, which have onset after age 65, probably have complex causes involving both genetic and environmental influences.

If so, this decline should also be reducing mortality from vascular dementia. SUMMARY Consistent Evidence . . It is methodologically possible to estimate the prevalence of dementia, and specifically of AD and vascular dementia, in general population samples. Estimates of incidence are much more taxing. There is an unprecedented growth in the world's elderly. The dementias are progressive disorders. There are four known risk factors for AD: age, family history of dementia, Down's syndrome, and apoE 44 genotype.
