Has there been any research on Alz caused by Agent Orange exposure during the Vietnam War?

There is one study indicating that the combination of Agent Orange exposure and post-traumatic stress disorder increases the risk for Alzheimer's disease.

This may also be true of Agent Orange and other risk factors for Alzheimer's disease.
