Performance of FDG PET for detection of Alzheimer’s disease in two independent multicentre samples (NEST-DD and ADNI)

Aim: We investigated the performance of FDG PET using an automated procedure for discrimination between Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and controls, and studied the influence of demographic and technical factors.; Methods: FDG PET data were obtained from the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) [102 controls (76.0 +/- 4.9 years) and 89 AD patients (75.7 +/- 7.6 […]

Computer-assisted system for diagnosis of Alzheimer disease using data base- independent estimation and fluorodeoxyglucose- positron-emission tomography and 3D-stereotactic surface projection

Background and Purpose: Recently, voxel-based statistical parametric images have been developed as additional diagnostic tools for AD. However these methods require the generation of a data base of healthy brain images. The purpose of this study was to produce and evaluate an automatic method using a data base-independent estimation system for the diagnosis of mild […]

Memantine is associated with longer survival than donepezil in a Veterans Affairs prescription database, 1997 to 2008

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) shortens life-expectancy, but the effects of pharmacological treatments for this disorder on mortality have not been studied. We compared two commonly prescribed medications, donepezil and memantine, with respect to the length of survival of veterans presumed to have AD. The Computerized Medical Records System at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care […]

Persistence with cholinesterase inhibitor therapy for dementia: an observational administrative health database study

Objective: To determine if choice of drug and ease of administration affect persistence of therapy with cholinesterase inhibitors (ChEIs) for treatment of dementia.; Methods: An observational administrative health database study was conducted in 5622 patients aged >or=65 years who received a new prescription for donepezil (DON), rivastigmine (RIV) or galantamine (GAL) from February to May […]

Comparison of adverse drug reactions with donepezil versus memantine: analysis of the French Pharmacovigilance Database

Background: Since donepezil and memantine are currently used for treating Alzheimer’s disease, it is interesting to analyse, reassess and compare their safety profile in order to promote a better use.; Methods: All spontaneous reports of suspected serious adverse drug reactions with donepezil alone and with memantine alone recorded in the French Pharmacovigilance Database during 6 […]

Low agreement between the modified diet and renal disease formula and the Cockcroft-Gault formula for assessing chronic kidney disease in cognitively impaired elderly outpatients

Objective: Chronic kidney disease is a global public health concern. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) prediction based on serum creatinine is used to assess renal function in the elderly. The Cockcroft-Gault (CG) formula, based on body surface area (CG/BSA formula), and the Modified Diet and Renal Disease formula (MDRD formula) are commonly used in assessing renal […]
