Background: We attempt to evaluate objectively the regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) changes during long-term donepezil therapy and the relationship between the clinical response and rCBF change in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD).; Patients and Methods: Thirty-one patients with mild-to-moderate AD (11 men, 20 female; mean age, 76.2 ± 6.7 years) were treated with donepezil […]
Background/aims: Hypercholesterolemia in midlife increases risk for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and contributes to cerebrovascular dysregulation – an early finding in preclinical AD pathology. Statins improve vascular reactivity, but it is unknown if they increase regional cerebral blood flow (CBF) in individuals at risk for AD.; Methods: In a randomized, controlled, double-blind pilot study, 16 asymptomatic […]
Aim: Recent studies have shown that some antihypertensive medications are associated with a significant reduction in the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). However, it remains uncertain whether antihypertensive drugs may have a preventive effect on cognitive decline in patients with AD. We investigated the effects of telmisartan, an angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker with […]
Objectives: To compare the effects of three antihypertensive medications on cerebral hemodynamic and cognitive function in hypertensive individuals with executive dysfunction.; Design: Double-blind randomized clinical trial.; Setting: Community.; Participants: Fifty-three individuals aged 60 and older with hypertension and executive dysfunction.; Intervention: Lisinopril, candesartan, or hydrochlorothiazide for 1 year.; Measurements: Cerebral blood flow velocity (BFV; transcranial […]
