(22) to be associated with ARMD (in particular the non-neovascular subtype), but this same association was not found by others (23,24). The APOE-ε4 allele has been found to be associated with a decreased risk, and the ε2 allele was associated with a slight increase in risk for ARMD (25,26). This association was not found by others, however (27,28).
