Abstract

A model of the autosomal dominant diseases, hereditary amyloidosis is also a prototype of late-onset genetic disease - a category that encompasses ailments as rare as Huntington's disease and as widespread as familial Alzheimer's disease, diabetes mellitus, and atherosclerosis. What we have learned about amyloidosis is encouraging for future understanding and control of delayed-onset diseases.
