Abstract

Large-scale genome-wide association studies (GWAS) identified that the single nucleotide polymorphism rs11136000 in Clusterin (CLU) gene was associated with risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD) in Caucasian ancestry. However, recent studies reported either a weak association or no association between rs11136000 polymorphism and AD in Asian populations. Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis to explore whether rs11136000 polymorphism is associated with susceptibility to AD in Asian populations. A total of 17 articles including 26 studies with 19,829 cases and 30,900 controls, which were identified by searching PubMed, MEDLINE, and AlzGene up to Nov 2016, were collected for this meta-analysis. The significant association between rs11136000 and AD in the pooled population was found under all the models. In subgroup analysis, we identified significant association in Asian population under the additive mode (OR = 0.90, 95% CI = 0.85-0.96) but not in the recessive model (OR = 0.80, 95% CI = 0.53-1.21) and the dominant model (OR = 0.94, 95% CI = 0.86-1.03). Our analysis further supports previous findings that the rs11136000 polymorphism C allele is associated with AD susceptibility. To our knowledge, this is the new largest meta-analysis to access to the association of CLU rs11136000 polymorphism with AD risk.
