Donepezil for dementia with Lewy bodies: a randomized, placebo-controlled trial

Objective: Because cholinergic deficits are prominent in dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), we investigated the effects of a cholinesterase inhibitor, donepezil, in such patients in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled exploratory phase 2 trial.; Methods: One-hundred forty patients with DLB, recruited from 48 specialty centers in Japan, were randomly assigned to receive placebo or 3, 5, […]

A phase I trial of deep brain stimulation of memory circuits in Alzheimer’s disease

Objective: Alzheimer disease (AD) is characterized by functional impairment in the neural elements and circuits underlying cognitive and memory functions. We hypothesized that fornix/hypothalamus deep brain stimulation (DBS) could modulate neurophysiological activity in these pathological circuits and possibly produce clinical benefits.; Methods: We conducted a phase I trial in 6 patients with mild AD receiving […]

Neuroimaging predictors of brain amyloidosis in mild cognitive impairment

Objective: To identify a neuroimaging signature predictive of brain amyloidosis as a screening tool to identify individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) that are most likely to have high levels of brain amyloidosis or to be amyloid-free.; Methods: The prediction model cohort included 62 MCI subjects screened with structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and (11) […]

Application of immunosignatures to the assessment of Alzheimer’s disease

Objective: Accurate assessment of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), both presymptomatically and at different disease stages, will become increasingly important with the expanding elderly population. There are a number of indications that the immune system is engaged in AD. Here we explore the ability of an antibody-profiling technology to characterize AD and screen for peptides that may […]

In vivo assessment of amyloid-β deposition in nondemented very elderly subjects

Objective: This study examined amyloid-β (Aβ) deposition in 190 nondemented subjects aged ≥82 years to determine the proportion of Aβ-positive scans and associations with cognition, apolipoprotein E (APOE) status, brain volume, and Ginkgo biloba (Gb) treatment.; Methods: Subjects who agreed to participate had a brain magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography scan with (11) […]
