A Nutritional Formulation for Cognitive Performance in Mild Cognitive Impairment: A Placebo-Controlled Trial with an Open-Label Extension

Thirty-four individuals with mild cognitive impairment were randomized for 6 months to a nutraceutical formulation (NF: folate, alpha-tocopherol, B12, S-adenosyl methioinine, N-acetyl cysteine, acetyl-L-carnitine) or indistinguishable placebo, followed by a 6-month open-label extension in which all individuals received NF. The NF cohort improved in the Dementia Rating Scale (DRS; effect size >0.7) and maintained baseline […]

Quality of life and Alzheimer’s disease: The influence of participation in a rehabilitation center

Quality of life is seldom explored in evaluations of therapeutic interventions in Alzheimer’s disease. Objective: To verify whether participation in a cognitive and functional rehabilitation program improves quality of life (QOL) among Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients. Methods: 19 AD patients participated in this study, 12 of whom attended 24 multi-professional intervention sessions—the experimental group—whereas the […]

Effects of multisensory stimulation on cognition, depression and anxiety levels of mildly-affected Alzheimer’s patients

Aims: The purpose of this study was to investigate and assess the effects of musical therapy, painting inanimate–animate object pictures, and orientation to time–place–person interventions on the cognitive state, depression, and anxiety levels of mildly-affected Alzheimer’s patients. Methods: The study using a quasi-experimental design was conducted with 27 mildly-affected Alzheimer’s patients. The effects of the […]

The effect of music therapy on reducing agitation in patients with Alzheimer’s disease in Shahryar city nursing home

Objective: One of the most important challenges in present-day societies is the growing number of patients with Alzheimer’s disease and the related problems afflicted upon the patients, their families, and organizations providing health services. Agitation is one of the behavioral problems present in Alzheimer’s. To overcome these behavioral problems, many pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical remedies have […]

Longitudinal medication usage in Alzheimer disease patients

This study examined in detail patterns of cholinesterase inhibitors (ChEIs) and memantine use and explored the relationship between patient characteristics and such use. Patients with probable Alzheimer disease AD (n=201) were recruited from the Predictors Study in 3 academic AD centers and followed from early disease stages for up to 6 years. Random effects logistic […]

Rivastigmine for cognitive impairment after spontaneous subarachnoid haemorrhage: A pilot study

Background and objective: Rivastigmine has been shown to be effective for patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease. Its effect on cognitive impairment after aneurysmal subarachnoid haemorrhage has not been previously studied. The aim of the study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of rivastigmine 3 mg day over 12 weeks in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid […]

Examination of a psychoeducational intervention and a respite grant in relieving psychosocial stressors associated with being an Alzheimer’s caregiver

Alzheimer’s disease can be particularly devastating to those who are caring for their loved one with the condition. There have been recent calls for the tailoring of caregiving interventions to examine outcome differences between groups of caregivers and the reporting of effectiveness via longitudinal and specific outcomes. The purpose of this study was to examine […]

Treatment effects of therapeutic cholinesterase inhibitors on visuospatial processing in Alzheimer’s disease: A longitudinal functional MRI study

Background/Aims: Visuospatial impairments are known to occur in Alzheimer’s disease (AD). We hypothesised that functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) response in task-related brain regions would be impaired in patients with AD during the task and that treatment with acetyl cholinesterase inhibitors would enhance activations in brain regions concerned with this visual perceptual processing. Method: Ten […]

Estimation and validation of a multiattribute model of Alzheimer disease progression

Objectives: To estimate and validate a multiattribute model of the clinical course of Alzheimer disease (AD) from mild AD to death in a high-quality prospective cohort study, and to estimate the impact of hypothetical modifications to AD progression rates on costs associated with Medicare and Medicaid services. Data and Methods: The authors estimated sex-specific longitudinal […]

Evaluating rivastigmine in mild-to-moderate Parkinson’s disease dementia using ADAS-cog items

Rivastigmine has been shown to improve cognition in patients with Parkinson’s disease dementia (PDD). To further explore the impact of anticholinesterase therapy on PDD, Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale—cognitive subscale (ADAS-cog) items were assessed in a retrospective analysis of a 24-week, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of rivastigmine. Mean changes from baseline at week 24 were calculated for […]
