Full Abstract Title: Association of Higher Levels of High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol in Elderly Individuals and Lower Risk of Late-Onset Alzheimer Disease.

Objective: To reexamine the association of lipid levels with Alzheimer disease (AD) using Cox proportional hazards models.

Design: Prospective cohort study.

Setting: Northern Manhattan, New York.

Participants: 1,130 elderly individuals free of cognitive impairment at baseline.

Main Outcome Measure: High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels.

Results: Higher levels of HDL-C (>55 mg/dL) were associated with a decreased risk of both probable and possible AD and probable AD compared with lower HDL-C levels (hazard ratio, 0.4; 95% confidence interval, 0.2-0.9; P = .03 and hazard ratio, 0.4; 95% confidence interval, 0.2-0.9; P = .03). [A hazard ratio of 1.0 would indicate no difference in risk. The 0.4 ratio represents 60% less likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s or signs of impending AD.]

In addition, higher levels of total and non–HDL-C were associated with a decreased risk of AD in analyses adjusting for age, sex, education, ethnic group, and APOE e4 genotype.

Conclusion: High HDL-C levels in elderly individuals may be associated with a decreased risk of AD.
