A new research by Universities of Montana in the US, which focused on children between ages 12 and 16, and one of their parents sharing the same APOE version of the gene,suggests that Higher levels of air pollution may increase risk of Alzheimer's disease in those who carry a gene associated with the debilitating brain disorder.

The researchers found the detrimental impact of toxic air on cognitive abilities of kids having a version of the apolipoprotein E gene (APOE) which is linked with the risk for Alzheimer disease (AD).

Lilian Calderon-Garciduenas, who is one of the member of researcher team and also a professor at Universities of Montana in the US, said, "These results add to growing data suggesting APOE e4 carriers could have a higher risk of developing early AD if they reside in a polluted urban environment, and unfortunately this statement applies to individuals all around the world with high exposures to air pollutants regardless of ethnicity."

They investigated the hippocampus, a key structure present in higher cognitive capacity, basically memory forms, alongside certain full of feeling practices.

Three noteworthy cerebrum metabolites in the hippocampus were measured in every kid/guardian pair utilizing proton attractive reverberation spectroscopy.

In the right hippocampus, the proportion intelligent of functional integrity and neuronal density, was essentially diminished in youngsters conveying e4 adaptation of the APOE quality who were presented to larger amount of contamination versus those presented to low contamination.

Researchers also found that the young children showed evidence of a spectral marker of neurodegeneration that is often seen in adults with mild cognitive impairment, and in Alzheimer patients.
