Abstract

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder that can destroy the memory of sufferers and lead to distress for the individual and society. Brain‑derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and butyrylcholinesterase (BCHE) are two genes associated with β‑amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles that are two key factors in the pathophysiology of AD. The aim of the current meta‑analysis was to evaluate the association between BDNF Val66Met (rs6265), BDNF C270T (rs2030324) and BCHE‑K (rs1803274) polymorphisms and AD. A comprehensive meta‑analysis was performed using the online database PubMed without a time limitation. A total of 56 articles evaluating 12,563 cases and 12,622 controls were selected for the current meta‑analysis. The results showed a moderate association of the BDNF C270T polymorphism with the risk of AD in Asians under a dominant model (P=0.03; odds ratio, 1.88; 95% confidence interval, 1.08‑3.27). No other significant association was found during the meta‑analysis for the other two polymorphisms (P>0.05). The current meta‑analysis suggests that BDNF C270T is a risk factor for AD in Asians. This meta‑analysis has been, to the best of our knowledge, the most comprehensive meta‑analysis of BDNF Val66Met, BDNF C270T and BCHE‑K to date.
