Docosahexaenoic acid supplementation and cognitive decline in Alzheimer disease: a randomized trial

Context: Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is the most abundant long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acid in the brain. Epidemiological studies suggest that consumption of DHA is associated with a reduced incidence of Alzheimer disease. Animal studies demonstrate that oral intake of DHA reduces Alzheimer-like brain pathology.; Objective: To determine if supplementation with DHA slows cognitive and functional decline […]

Longitudinal changes in white matter disease and cognition in the first year of the Alzheimer disease neuroimaging initiative

Objective: To evaluate relationships between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based measures of white matter hyperintensities (WMHs), measured at baseline and longitudinally, and 1-year cognitive decline using a large convenience sample in a clinical trial design with a relatively mild profile of cardiovascular risk factors.; Design: Convenience sample in a clinical trial design.; Subjects: A total of […]

The preclinical Alzheimer cognitive composite: Measuring amyloid-related decline

Importance: As Alzheimer disease (AD) research moves to intervene in presymptomatic phases of the disease, we must develop outcome measures sensitive to the earliest disease-related changes. Objective: To demonstrate the feasibility of a cognitive composite outcome for clinically normal elderly participants with evidence of AD pathology using the ADCS Preclinical Alzheimer Cognitive Composite (ADCS-PACC). The […]
