Previous estimates of the utility of polygenic risk score analysis for the prediction of Alzheimer’s disease have given Area Under the Curve estimates of <80%. However, these have been based on the genetic analysis of clinical case control series. Here we apply the same analytic approaches to a pathological case control series and show a predictive AUC of 84%. We suggest that this analysis has clinical utility and that there is limited room for further improvement using genetic data.
