Performance Metrics

Disclaimer: The performance metrics are displayed as reported by the source studies. It is important to note that metrics are not necessarily comparable with each other. For example, metrics depend on the sample characteristics (described by the PGS Catalog Sample Set [PSS] ID), phenotyping, and statistical modelling. Please refer to the source publication for additional guidance on performance.

PSS011719 Samples used in this study were extracted from autopsied brain tissue. Samples were taken from cognitively normal individuals witth a dementia rating of 0 (controls) and from late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD) patients who had a clinical diagnosis of dementia due to AD and neuropathological confirmation of AD.
