Associations of anti-hypertensive treatments with Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, and other dementias
We investigated whether angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE-Is) are more strongly associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD), vascular dementia (VaD), and other dementias, than other anti-hypertensive drugs. We conducted a nested case-control analysis within the UK general practice research database, with prospectively recorded anti-hypertensive prescribing data. We sampled cases aged […]
The impact of supplemental macular carotenoids in Alzheimer’s disease: A randomized clinical trial
Background: Patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) exhibit significantly less macular pigment (MP) and poorer vision when compared to control subjects. Objective: To investigate supplementation with the macular carotenoids on MP, vision, and cognitive function in patients with AD versus controls. Methods: A randomized, double-blind clinical trial with placebo and active arms. 31 AD patients and […]
Long-term metformin usage and cognitive function among older adults with diabetes
Evidence strongly supports the important role of insulin resistance in cognitive decline and dementia and suggests that insulin sensitizers may protect against cognitive decline in diabetic and pre-diabetic individuals. Inconclusive results have been reported in clinical trials of rosiglitazone, an insulin sensitizer that also increases cardiovascular mortality risks. No study has yet reported a protective […]
Cognitive-motor intervention in Alzheimer’s disease: Long-term results from the Maria Wolff trial
Background: Little is known about the long-term acceptance and effects of cognitive and motor stimulation interventions (CMSI) in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Objective: To evaluate a replicable CMSI program for mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and mild-to-moderate AD persons. Methods: Eighty-four non-institutionalized subjects with AD were randomized to receive either CMSI, administered by a single care provider, […]
Cognitive training enhances pre-attentive neurophysiological responses in older adults ‘at risk’ of dementia
Background: With predicted increases in dementia incidence, interventions targeting neuroplasticity and neuroprotection are required. Cognitive Training (CT) is an intervention which has been shown to improve aspects of cognition, but the pathophysiological mechanisms contributing to its efficacy are unknown. Objective:We aimed to explore the neurobiological correlates of CT using Mismatch Negativity (MMN), a neurophysiological marker […]
