Of critical relevance, successes in mapping genes for Wilson's disease and deafness using inbred Arab kindreds facilitated the cloning of these genes, which were subsequently shown to have diseasecausing mutations prevalent in outbred populations from other parts of the world, including the United States. All of the known Alzheimer-related genes (on chromosomes 21, 14, 1, and 19) are dominant (chromosomes 21,14,1) or codominant (chromosome 19). There are no known genes affecting the development of AD that are recessive, perhaps because there have been few studies of AD in populations with high levels of inbreeding.
Participants were questioned about their responses to the interview and the process.
