The APOE e4 variant inhibits dimerization of APOE that normally occurs with the e3 and e2 variants . Therefore, the APOE e4 travels the interstitium more easily than the other APOE variants which are confined more intracellularly.
2 Antioxidants The only protective factors for AMD known to date are antioxidants. AREDS showed that a combination of zinc, b-carotene, and vitamins C, and E reduced the risk of progression from intermediate to advanced AMD by 25% . The RS found that an above-median intake of these nutrients was associated with a 35% lower risk of incident AMD . 92). 97) for early AMD. 70), respectively . The BDES studied the 5-year incidence of early AMD in relation to antioxidant intake, and did not find an association.
