Effects of insulin and octreotide on memory and growth hormone in Alzheimer’s disease
Both insulin alone and the somatostatin analogue octreotide alone facilitate memory in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Since octreotide inhibits endogenous insulin secretion, the cognitive effects of insulin and octreotide may not be independent. This study tested the individual and interactive effects of insulin and octreotide on memory and plasma growth hormone (GH) levels in […]
Midlife cardiovascular risk factors and late cognitive impairment
Cardiovascular risk factors increase the risk of dementia in later life. The aims of the current study were to assess the effect of multiple midlife cardiovascular risk factors on the risk of cognitive impairment in later life, and to assess the validity of the previously suggested CAIDE Study risk score predicting dementia risk 20 years later. […]
