Cognitive intervention response is related to habitual physical activity in older adults

Background and Aims: This study analysed the associations between physical activity and the effects of cognitive training on perceived cognitive functioning and life satisfaction in older adults.; Methods: A sample of 114 intervention group participants (65-89 yrs) received weekly group sessions of cognitive stimulation for two months. This sample was stratified into groups according to […]

Randomized, double-blind, parallel-group, 48-week study for efficacy and safety of a higher-dose rivastigmine patch (15 vs. 10 cm²) in Alzheimer’s disease

Aim: Determine whether patients with Alzheimer’s disease demonstrating functional and cognitive decline, following 24-48 weeks of open-label treatment with 9.5 mg/24 h (10 cm(2)) rivastigmine patch, benefit from a dose increase in a double-blind (DB) comparative trial of two patch doses.; Methods: Patients meeting prespecified decline criteria were randomized to receive 9.5 or 13.3 mg/24 […]

Donepezil treatment of patients with MCI: a 48-week randomized, placebo-controlled trial

Background: Treatment of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) with cholinesterase inhibitors may improve symptoms.; Methods: In this multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, subjects with MCI entered a 3-week placebo run-in period followed by 48 weeks of double-blind donepezil (5 mg/day for 6 weeks, then 10 mg/day for 42 weeks) or placebo treatment. Primary efficacy variables included change […]

Effect of tramiprosate in patients with mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease: exploratory analyses of the MRI sub-group of the Alphase study

Objectives: The efficacy, safety and disease-modification of tramiprosate (homotaurine)were investigated in a recently completed large-scale Phase III clinical study in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease (AD), the Alphase study. Disease-modification was assessed using longitudinal volumetric MRI (vMRI) measurements of the hippocampus in a subgroup of patients. The present study describes the vMRI, cognitive […]

A phase 3 trial of semagacestat for treatment of Alzheimer’s disease

Background: Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by the presence of cortical amyloid-beta (Aβ) protein plaques, which result from the sequential action of β-secretase and γ-secretase on amyloid precursor protein. Semagacestat is a small-molecule γ-secretase inhibitor that was developed as a potential treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.; Methods: We conducted a double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in which 1537 patients […]

Optimal dosing of galantamine in patients with mild or moderate Alzheimer’s disease: post Hoc analysis of a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial

Background: Galantamine (hydrobromide), a reversible acetylcholinesterase inhibitor and allosteric nicotinic receptor modulator, slows cognitive and functional decline in mild to moderate dementia of the Alzheimer’s type. Although several drugs are indicated for mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease (AD), no published study has separately analysed mild and moderate AD subgroups to assess the effect of dosage.; […]
