Apolipoprotein E genotype-specific short-term cognitive benefits of treatment with the antihypertensive nilvadipine in Alzheimer’s patients–an open-label trial

Background: Evidence suggests that dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers may be useful in preventing and treating Alzheimer’s disease (AD).; Objective: In an open-label trial of safety and tolerability of nilvadipine in patients with AD, we examined cognition and executive function over a short time period to determine an influence of nilvadipine on these outcomes.; Method: We […]

Effects of telmisartan on cognition and regional cerebral blood flow in hypertensive patients with Alzheimer’s disease

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 […]

Antihypertensive agents and risk of Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor and dementia: a population-based prospective study (NEDICES)
