Resumo: Objectives: To study the interplay between serum concentrations of homocysteine, steroid hormones and vitamins B and mutations in 5,10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene, in association to Alzheimer's type dementia (ATD). Design and methods: Case-control study including 19 individuals diagnosed with ATD and 36 healthy controls. Serum concentrations of the analytes were determined and MTHFR 1298A - C mutation was screened by PCR-RFLP. Results: Multivariable logistic regression analysis identified homocysteine (OR=1.92, P0.01), cholesterol (OR C mutation (OR=6.01, P0.04) as independent predictors of ATD. Positive interaction between homocysteine and uric acid, creatinine, urea or cortisol (P0.02) and negative interaction between homocysteine and vitamin B-12 or MTHFR 1298A - C mutation (P0.03) were observed. Conclusions: High serum concentrations of homocysteine, cholesterol and uric acid, and low concentrations of estradiol and vitamin B-12, as well as the MTHFR 1298A - C mutation are simultaneously associated to ATD.
