Vitamin D and risk of cognitive decline in elderly persons
Background: To our knowledge, no prospective study has examined the association between vitamin D and cognitive decline or dementia.; Methods: We determined whether low levels of serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25[OH]D) were associated with an increased risk of substantial cognitive decline in the InCHIANTI population-based study conducted in Italy between 1998 and 2006 with follow-up assessments […]
Qualification of the analytical and clinical performance of CSF biomarker analyses in ADNI
The close correlation between abnormally low pre-mortem cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentrations of amyloid-β1-42 (Aβ(1-42)) and plaque burden measured by amyloid imaging as well as between pathologically increased levels of CSF tau and the extent of neurodegeneration measured by MRI has led to growing interest in using these biomarkers to predict the presence of AD plaque […]
Platelet decline as a predictor of brain injury in HIV infection
An association between platelet decline and increased risk of progression to dementia has been observed in an advanced HIV infection cohort study. This investigation evaluated the prognostic significance of platelet decline for dementia, for psychomotor slowing, and for brain injury, as quantified in vivo, in a much larger population of HIV+ men. Platelet counts and […]
Optimal blood pressure for cognitive function: findings from an elderly African-American cohort study
Objectives: To report the results from a prospective cohort study on the association between blood pressure (BP) and cognitive function in elderly African Americans.; Design: Prospective cohort study conducted from 1997 to 2009.; Setting: Community-based study in Indianapolis.; Participants: African Americans aged 65 years or older (N = 3,145).; Measurements: At each assessment, participant cognitive […]
Prediction of dementia in primary care patients
Background: Current approaches for AD prediction are based on biomarkers, which are however of restricted availability in primary care. AD prediction tools for primary care are therefore needed. We present a prediction score based on information that can be obtained in the primary care setting.; Methodology/principal Findings: We performed a longitudinal cohort study in 3.055 […]
