Sharing Pathogenetic Mechanisms between Acute Myocardial Infarction and Alzheimer's Disease as Shown by Partially Overlapping of Gene Variant Profiles

Myocardial infarction  commonly known as heart attack

One of the many puzzling things about late-onset  Alzheimer's disease is that one could argue that it in fact  protects against a number of other diseases. After all, Alzheimer's disease patients are generally old and have survived to this age without succumbing to heart attacks, strokes or other fatalities.  Could some of the genes identified be protective ?
