DEMENTIA-SEQ: Genome sequencing in Lewy Body Dementia, Frontotemporal Dementia, and neurologically healthy controls
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
Lewy body dementia and frontotemporal dementia are age-related, neurodegenerative dementia syndromes that are poorly understood. Delineating the genetic risk that is driving the pathophysiology of these neurological diseases is fundamental for understanding disease mechanisms and for developing disease-modifying treatments. We performed a whole-genome sequencing study consisting of 7,403 total samples that included 2,633 genomes from patients with Lewy body dementia, 2,641 frontotemporal dementia patients, and 1,980 neurologically healthy controls. All subjects were of European ancestry.
