Background: It is important to detect and prevent Alzheimer disease (AD) at its early stage. Constituting the early stage sign of AD, amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI) has drawn much attention. Studies have shown that donepezil could reduce the AD assessment scale-cognitive subscale (ADAS-Cog) score in MCI patients and improve the patient’s attention and speed […]
Objective: To explore the effects of telmisartan, an angiotensin II type 1 receptor blocker with peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ-stimulating activity, on the levels of Aβ1-42, interleukin-1β (IL-1β), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and cognition in elderly hypertensive patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD).; Methods: A total of 48 patients with probable AD and essential hypertension were randomly […]
Objective: To explore the curative effect and safety of acupuncture for mild cognitive disorders after stroke.; Methods: Randomized controlled trial was adopted and one hundred cases conforming to criteria were divided into a combined acupuncture and medication group (group A) and a medication group (group B), 50 cases in each group. The basic treatment of […]
The increased risk for the elderly with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to progress to Alzheimer’s disease makes it an appropriate condition for investigation. While the use of acupuncture as a complementary therapeutic method for treating MCI is popular in certain parts of the world, the underlying mechanism is still elusive. We sought to investigate the […]
Objective: To verify the therapeutic effect of vascular dementia treated with three-line puncture on the Governor Vessel and Bladder Meridian on head.; Methods: Sixty cases were randomly divided into a head-line puncture group and a routine acupuncture group, 30 cases in each group. In head-line puncture group, line puncture was applied on three lines of […]
Objective: Much controversy exists and many questions remain unanswered about the effects of hormone therapy (HT) on cognition in postmenopausal women. There is growing evidence suggesting that HT compounds containing conjugated equine estrogen (CEE) have negative effects on cognition whereas 17β-estradiol (17β-E) either has positive or neutral effects. The present study sought to further examine […]
Research shows that certain antihypertensives taken during midlife confer Alzheimer’s disease (AD) related benefits in later life. We conducted a clinical trial to evaluate the extent to which the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I), ramipril, affects AD biomarkers including cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) amyloid-β (Aβ) levels and ACE activity, arterial function, and cognition in participants with […]
Objectives: Our objective was to compare long-term outcomes of deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the globus pallidus interna (GPi) and subthalamic nucleus (STN) for patients with Parkinson disease (PD) in a multicenter randomized controlled trial.; Methods: Patients randomly assigned to GPi (n = 89) or STN DBS (n = 70) were followed for 36 months. […]
Objective: To assess the efficacy at 12 months of an early psychosocial counselling and support programme for outpatients with mild Alzheimer’s disease and their primary care givers.; Design: Multicentre, randomised, controlled, rater blinded trial.; Setting: Primary care and memory clinics in five Danish districts.; Participants: 330 outpatients with mild Alzheimer’s disease and their 330 primary […]
Rationale: Dementia is a common neurodegenerative condition in older age associated with functional decline across multiple domains. This decline impacts not only on the person with dementia, but also on their informal carers and health and aged care systems. With the number of people with dementia rapidly increasing and few effective treatments, there is now […]
