We have assessed whether apolipoprotein E (ApoE) genotype influences the age of onset of dementia in a series of families with frontal temporal dementia with defined mutations in the tau gene. In contrast to the situation in Alzheimer's disease (AD), we could find no evidence that the age of onset of disease was influenced by the ApoE genotype.
