Changes in cognitive functions of patients with dementia of the Alzheimer type following long-term administration of donepezil hydrochloride: Relating to changes attributable to differences in apolipoprotein E phenotype

Aim: We conducted a study of changes in cognitive functions by long-term monitoring of dementia of Alzheimer type (DAT) patients to investigate the relationship between the progression of DAT symptoms and the presence of apolipoprotein (ApoE)4. Methods: The subjects consisted of 40 DAT patients who had been treated with donepezil for 3 years or more. […]

The effects of ramipril in individuals at risk for Alzheimer’s disease: results of a pilot clinical trial

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 […]

Response to rivastigmine transdermal patch or memantine plus rivastigmine patch is affected by apolipoprotein E genotype in Alzheimer patients

Background/aims: The apolipoprotein E (APOE) genotype in response to pharmacological treatments in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) remains a matter of controversy. This analysis investigated the effect of the APOE genotype on the clinical response to rivastigmine transdermal patch monotherapy or memantine plus rivastigmine patch in patients with mild to moderate AD.; Methods: Two hundred […]

Disclosure of APOE genotype for risk of Alzheimer’s disease

Background: The apolipoprotein E (APOE) genotype provides information on the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, but the genotyping of patients and their family members has been discouraged. We examined the effect of genotype disclosure in a prospective, randomized, controlled trial.; Methods: We randomly assigned 162 asymptomatic adults who had a parent with Alzheimer’s disease to receive […]

Rosiglitazone monotherapy in mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease: results from a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled phase III study

Background/aims: A phase II study of the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ agonist rosiglitazone extended release (RSG XR) in mild-to-moderate Alzheimer’s disease (AD) detected a treatment benefit to cognition in apolipoprotein E(APOE)-ε4-negative subjects. The current phase III study with prospective stratification by APOE genotype was conducted to confirm the efficacy and safety of RSG XR in mild-to-moderate […]

Neuroimaging predictors of brain amyloidosis in mild cognitive impairment

Objective: To identify a neuroimaging signature predictive of brain amyloidosis as a screening tool to identify individuals with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) that are most likely to have high levels of brain amyloidosis or to be amyloid-free.; Methods: The prediction model cohort included 62 MCI subjects screened with structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and (11) […]

Walking the line: a randomised trial on the effects of a short term walking programme on cognition in dementia

Background: Walking has proven to be beneficial for cognition in healthy sedentary older people. The aim of this study was to examine the effects of a walking intervention on cognition in older people with dementia.; Methods: 97 older nursing home residents with moderate dementia (mean age 85.4 years; 79 female participants; mean Mini-Mental State Examination […]
