Abstract: Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathology has been described in Parkinson's disease (PD) patients with leucine-rich repeat kinase-2 (LRRK2) mutations. A common LRRK2 Gly2385Arg variant has been widely shown to be associated with a twofold increased risk of PD in various Asian populations. In a case control study, the frequency of the heterozygous Gly2385Arg genotype was demonstrated in 4.3% of AD compared to 4.5% in controls (odds ratio = 0.94, 95% CI 0.37-2.42, p = 1.0). The Gly2385Arg variant does not appear to modulate the risk of AD in our population. © 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
