Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have associated several genetic variants with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD), a neurodegenerative disease. Among those, rs3764650 ABCA7, rs6656401 CR1, and rs744373 BIN1 were associated as risk factors for LOAD, while rs11136000 CLU and rs610932 MS4A6A were protective. Recently, several case-control studies have investigated the association of these polymorphisms with AD. However, not all meta-analyses analyzed these variants across different ethnic groups. Therefore, we performed an updated meta-analysis of rs3764650 ABCA7, rs6656401 CR1, rs744373 BIN1, rs11136000 CLU, and rs610932 MS4A6A variants associated with LO...
