Relapse risk after discontinuation of risperidone in Alzheimer’s disease
Background: Among patients with Alzheimer’s disease who have had a response to antipsychotic medication for psychosis or agitation-aggression, the risk of a recurrence of symptoms after discontinuation of the medication has not been established.; Methods: Patients with Alzheimer’s disease and psychosis or agitation-aggression received open-label treatment with risperidone for 16 weeks. Those who had a […]
Effect of second-generation antipsychotics on caregiver burden in Alzheimer’s disease
Background: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) imposes a severe burden upon patients and their caregivers. Severity of psychiatric symptoms and behavioral disturbances is an important determinant of caregivers’ experience of burden. These symptoms may be improved with atypical antipsychotic treatment.; Objective: Data from the Clinical Antipsychotic Trials of Intervention Effectiveness-Alzheimer’s Disease (CATIE-AD) trial were used to evaluate […]
Two galantamine titration regimens in patients switched from donepezil
Objectives: In addition to inhibiting acetylcholinesterase, galantamine has allosteric-modulating activity at nicotinic receptors. This may make galantamine an attractive option for patients starting treatment for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), but also for those who have not benefited from their current therapy. This study explored outcomes in subjects with AD transitioning from donepezil because of insufficient tolerability […]
Public-private partnerships improve health outcomes in individuals with early stage Alzheimer’s disease
Purpose: In a collaborative effort between the Missouri Department of Health, Area Agencies on Aging (AAA), Alzheimer Association, and academic researchers, we tested whether early dementia detection and comprehensive care consultations would improve health outcomes in care receivers (CRs) and their family caregivers (FCGs), therefore addressing an important public health concern.; Participants and Methods: A […]
Extended results of the Alzheimer’s disease anti-inflammatory prevention trial
Background: Epidemiologic evidence suggests that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) delay onset of Alzheimer’s dementia (AD), but randomized trials show no benefit from NSAIDs in patients with symptomatic AD. The Alzheimer’s Disease Anti-inflammatory Prevention Trial (ADAPT) randomized 2,528 elderly persons to naproxen or celecoxib versus placebo for 2 years (standard deviation = 11 months) before treatments […]
