The possibility of immunization against AD has now emerged [35]. This is highly attractive but as yet entirely unevaluated. Vascular dementia presents the greatest scope for prevention, because there are a number of risk factors which are modifiable. Control of hypertension and smoking are the interventions most likely to be successful. There is evidence that stroke mortality in Australia is declining at around DEFINITION AND EPIDEMIOLOGY: A REVIEW 27 5% a year [108]. If so, this decline should also be reducing mortality from vascular dementia.

Each person has two alleles, one of which is inherited from the mother and one from the father. Thus, individuals may have any of the following combinations of ApoE alleles: e2ae2, e2ae3, e2ae4, e3ae3, e3ae4 and e4ae4. People with one e4 allele have an increased risk of developing AD, while those with two e4 alleles have an even greater risk. There is some evidence that the e2 allele is associated with a decreased risk. A meta-analysis found that, in Caucasians, the e4ae4 genotype was associated with 15 times the risk compared to the common e3ae3 genotype, while the e3ae4 genotype was associated with three times the risk [58].
