OBJECTIVES: To elucidate whether any relationship exists between genetic acetylator polymorphism and the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. METHODS: Acetylator polymorphism has been determined, using sulphamethazine, in 54 patients with Alzheimer's disease or senile dementia of Alzheimer type and in 93 age-matched controls. RESULTS: Thirty-one patients (57.4%) and 54 controls (58%) were classified as slow acetylators (non-significant difference). No relation was found between acetylator polymorphism and age at onset of disease and scores of Minimental examination and Blessed, Tomlinson & Roth scale in the group of patients with Alzheimer's disease/senile dementia of Alzheimer type. CONCLUSIONS: Our results do not support the existence of any relationship between acetylator polymorphism and the risk of developing Alzheimer type dementia.
