This inherit disease also called autosomal dominant trait.

It means one copy of an alter gene that cause a disease or disorder in one person is passed down from one of the affected parent.

A person who has biological mother or father suffers the early onset Alzheimer's disease, then this person has 50 percent chance for having the early onset Alzheimer's disease.

Sadly, if a person who has biological mother or father has a gene mutation of the early onset Alzheimer's, this person has 50 percent chance for having a gene mutation.

So, from the diagram above we can see how the genetic disease inherits from generation to the next generation.

Now, let's do math! If a mother (or father) has early-onset Alzheimer's disease has 2 children, one of the two will get Alzheimer's disease. When she/he has 4 children, then 2 of the children will have this disease,

Fortunately, this early-onset Alzheimer's disease is less common. There is 1 person from 10 person who suffer with Alzheimer's disease.

  3. Una enfermedad penosa no sólo para la persona que la sufre, sino para sus familiares. Quién sabe si con el estudio que ahora se hizo de los que restaba del genoma humano por conocer, se ,logre su cura. García Márquez, el Nbel colombiano, la padeció con gran pesar, porque al saber que la tenía, cuando se recuperaba de las lagunas, sentía que su carrera como escritor se había acabado. Un abraxo.

  4. Qué miedo...
    Creo no tener antecedentes familiares pero eso tampoco asegura no enfermar.

    Saludos.
