Abstract

Diseases in old age affect organs which normally function for most of life. They clinically manifest themselves after a longstanding process influenced by cumulated effects of many genes and environmental factors, each with relatively minor contributions. In the present study, vascular dementias (VD) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) were analyzed in an identical method in an attempt to compare the risk factors of the two major dementing diseases in old age.
