Background: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) imposes a severe burden upon patients and their caregivers. Severity of psychiatric symptoms and behavioral disturbances is an important determinant of caregivers’ experience of burden. These symptoms may be improved with atypical antipsychotic treatment.; Objective: Data from the Clinical Antipsychotic Trials of Intervention Effectiveness-Alzheimer’s Disease (CATIE-AD) trial were used to evaluate […]

Delusion symptoms and response to antipsychotic treatment are associated with the 5-HT2A receptor polymorphism (102T/C) in Alzheimer’s disease: a 3-year follow-up longitudinal study

Although the etiology of psychotic symptoms (hallucinations and delusions) in Alzheimer’s disease is still not known, alterations in serotonergic neurotransmission have been proposed. In a 3-year follow-up study, we evaluated the association of serotonin (5-HT) receptor 5-HT2a 102T/C polymorphism (allelic variants CC, CT and TT) with psychotic symptom severity and response to treatment with atypical […]
