Rogaeva and her colleagues found that several overlapping haplotypes in two different regions of the SORL1 gene increased the likelihood of developing late-onset familial Alzheimer's disease (FAD), based on results obtained from two cohorts of families with late-onset FAD and later replicated in a cohort of cases and controls in other studies.
