Variants in APOE and PSEN1 (encoding apolipoprotein E and presenilin 1, respectively) alter the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. We previously reported a delay of cognitive impairment in a person with autosomal dominant Alzheimer’s disease caused by the PSEN1E280A variant who also had two copies of the apolipoprotein E3 Christchurch variant (APOE3Ch). Heterozygosity for the APOE3Ch variant may influence the age at which the onset of cognitive impairment occurs. We assessed this hypothesis in a population in which the PSEN1E280A variant is prevalent.
