Is it possible to create a epidemiological study which compares the presence of some main risk factors (which are proved in other studies) between two groups which both developed disease? So, it means it's not a classical case-control study.
For example: group of patients younger than 65 years who have Alheimer's deisease and group of patients older than 65 years who also developed Alzheimer's?
The group above 65 years has one extra risk factor: years.

Thanks!
