Risk factors for Alzheimer's disease: The EURODEM
collaborative re-analysis of case-control studies.
In a collaborative re-examination of 11 case-control studies, undertaken as part of the EURODEM
concerted action programme, a significant association with previous depressive illness was found for Alzheimer-type dementia, the relative risk among cases being 1.
The predictive value of the 4 IADL score could be tested in other epidemiological studies of dementia in the community, such as those in the EURODEM
project, to which PAQUID also belongs.
