Antioxidants for Alzheimer disease: a randomized clinical trial with cerebrospinal fluid biomarker measures
Objective: To evaluate whether antioxidant supplements presumed to target specific cellular compartments affected cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers.; Design: Double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial.; Setting: Academic medical centers.; Participants: Subjects with mild to moderate Alzheimer disease.; Intervention: Random assignment to treatment for 16 weeks with 800 IU/d of vitamin E (α-tocopherol) plus 500 mg/d of vitamin C […]
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 […]
Vascular care in patients with Alzheimer’s disease with cerebrovascular lesions-a randomized clinical trial
Objectives: To investigate whether vascular care slows dementia progression in patients with Alzheimer’s disease with cerebrovascular lesions on neuroimaging.; Design: Multicenter randomized controlled clinical trial with 2-year follow-up.; Setting: Neurological and geriatric outpatient clinics in 10 Dutch hospitals: three academic, five teaching, and two midsize community hospitals.; Participants: One hundred thirty community-dwelling patients with mild […]
Vitamins B(12), B(6), and folic acid for cognition in older men
Objective: To investigate whether supplementing older men with vitamins B(12), B(6), and folic acid improves cognitive function.; Methods: The investigators recruited 299 community-representative hypertensive men 75 years and older to a randomized, double-blind controlled clinical trial of folic acid, vitamin B(6), and B(12) supplementation vs placebo over 2 years. The primary outcome of interest was […]
Mibampator (LY451395) randomized clinical trial for agitation/aggression in Alzheimer’s disease
Background: Mibampator, an amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionic acid receptor potentiator, was evaluated for treatment of agitation and aggression (A/A) in Alzheimer’s disease (AD).; Methods: Outpatients (n = 132) with probable AD and A/A randomized to 12 weeks of double-blind treatment with 3-mg po mibampator or placebo were assessed using the 4-domain A/A subscale of the Neuropsychiatric Inventory […]
