Background: Cerebrolysin is a neuropeptide preparation mimicking the effects of neurotrophic factors. This subgroup analysis assessed safety and efficacy of Cerebrolysin in patients with moderate to moderately severe Alzheimer’s disease (AD) (ITT data set: N = 133; MMSE: 14–20) included in a dose‐finding study (ITT data set: N = 251; MMSE: 14–25). Results of the […]

Therefore, the efficacy and safety of memantine were investigated in patients with mild to moderate Parkinson’s disease dementia (PDD) or dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).; Methods: Patients (≥50 years […]

Evaluation of the convenience of changing the rivastigmine administration route in patients with Alzheimer disease

Introduction: Rivastigmine transdermal patches for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have potential benefits compared to capsules because of their sustained absorption through the skin, good local tolerability and reduction of gastrointestinal problems.; Purpose: To assess gastrointestinal and skin tolerability and the need for optimal dose titration of rivastigmine transdermal patches in Alzheimer’s disease patients […]

Effect of an antioxidant drink on homocysteine levels in Alzheimer’s patients

Background: A large body of evidence supports a role of oxidative stress in Alzheimer disease (AD) and in cerebrovascular disease. Blood levels of homocysteine may be increased in AD and hyperhomocysteinemia may contribute to disease pathophysiology by vascular and direct neurotoxic mechanisms. Even in the absence of vitamin deficiency, plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) concentration may […]
