Cognitive decline from estimated premorbid status predicts neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease
This study investigated the relationship between premorbid and current cognitive function with respect to the clinical features of patients with various types of neurodegeneration in the form of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), as compared with a healthy control group (C). Clinical features (MMSE, cognitive and depressive symptoms), […]
Urine neural thread protein measurements in Alzheimer disease
Objectives: Neural thread protein (NTP), a membrane-associated phosphoprotein, was selectively elevated in the urine of patients with Alzheimer disease (AD). To demonstrate the potential utility of urine NTP assays for the diagnosis of AD, we performed this study.; Design: A prospective blinded multicentered study.; Participants: Individuals diagnosed as having probable AD (n = 49), Parkinson’s […]
Hospice use and outcomes in nursing home residents with advanced dementia
Objectives: To identify characteristics of nursing home (NH) residents with advanced dementia and their healthcare proxies (HCPs) associated with hospice referral and to examine the association between hospice use and the treatment of pain and dyspnea and unmet needs during the last 7 days of life.; Design: Prospective cohort study.; Setting: Twenty-two Boston-area NHs.; Participants: […]
Effects of cholinesterase inhibitors on visual attention in drivers with Alzheimer disease
Objective: We conducted a combined observational cohort and case-control study in patients with Alzheimer disease (AD) to assess the effects of acetylcholinesterase inhibitor (ChEI) treatment on cognitive functions important for driving.; Methods: Performance of 24 outpatients with newly diagnosed (untreated) early-stage AD was compared before beginning ChEI (pre-ChEI) and after 3 months of therapy (post-ChEI) […]
Effect of rhythmic auditory cueing on gait in people with Alzheimer disease
Objective: To determine whether rhythmic music and metronome cues alter spatiotemporal gait measures and gait variability in people with Alzheimer disease (AD).; Design: A repeated-measures study requiring participants to walk under different cueing conditions.; Setting: University movement laboratory.; Participants: Of the people (N=46) who met study criteria (a diagnosis of probable AD and ability to […]
