Cognition and function in Alzheimer’s disease: identifying the transitions from moderate to severe disease
Background/aims: Cognitive and functional decline define the transition from moderate to severe Alzheimer’s disease (AD); however, specific relationships between deteriorating cognition and functional abilities are less well characterized. Such relationships are important in care planning and understanding patient needs. Objectives of this post hoc analysis of data from a multicenter randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study were […]
A pilot study using nabilone for symptomatic treatment in Huntington’s disease
Pilot study of nabilone in Huntington’s disease (HD). Double-blind, placebo-controlled, cross-over study of nabilone versus placebo. Primary outcome, Unified Huntington’s Disease Rating Scale (UHDRS) total motor score. Secondary measures: UHDRS subsections for chorea, cognition and behavior, and neuropsychiatric inventory (NPI). 44 randomized patients received either nabilone (1 or 2 mg) followed by placebo (n = […]
Long-term follow-up of patients immunized with AN1792: reduced functional decline in antibody responders
Background: Immunization of patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) with synthetic amyloid-beta peptide (Abeta(42)) (AN1792) was previously studied in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase 2a clinical trial, Study AN1792(QS-21)-201. Treatment was discontinued following reports of encephalitis. One year follow-up revealed that AN1792 antibody responders showed improvements in cognitive measures as assessed by the neuropsychological test battery […]
