Abstract: We aimed to evaluate the association of PLCG2 rs72824905 variant with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and multiple sclerosis (MS) using large-scale genetic association study datasets. We selected 50,024 AD cases and 467,330 controls, and 32,367 MS cases and 36,012 controls. We found moderate heterogeneity of rs72824905 in different studies. We found significant association between rs72824905 G allele and reduced AD risk (OR = 0.66, 95% CI 0.59–0.74, p = 5.91E-14). Importantly, rs72824905 G allele could also significa…
