Quality of life and Alzheimer’s disease: The influence of participation in a rehabilitation center
Quality of life is seldom explored in evaluations of therapeutic interventions in Alzheimer’s disease. Objective: To verify whether participation in a cognitive and functional rehabilitation program improves quality of life (QOL) among Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients. Methods: 19 AD patients participated in this study, 12 of whom attended 24 multi-professional intervention sessions—the experimental group—whereas the […]
Longitudinal medication usage in Alzheimer disease patients
This study examined in detail patterns of cholinesterase inhibitors (ChEIs) and memantine use and explored the relationship between patient characteristics and such use. Patients with probable Alzheimer disease AD (n=201) were recruited from the Predictors Study in 3 academic AD centers and followed from early disease stages for up to 6 years. Random effects logistic […]
Estimation and validation of a multiattribute model of Alzheimer disease progression
Objectives: To estimate and validate a multiattribute model of the clinical course of Alzheimer disease (AD) from mild AD to death in a high-quality prospective cohort study, and to estimate the impact of hypothetical modifications to AD progression rates on costs associated with Medicare and Medicaid services. Data and Methods: The authors estimated sex-specific longitudinal […]
No effect of donepezil on striatal dopamine release in mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease
Objective: Work in experimental animals suggests that an interaction with dopaminergic networks might explain some of the therapeutic effects of the cholinesterase inhibitor class of drugs. This study aimed to test whether acute (single 5 mg) or 4–8 weeks (5–10 mg) of treatment with oral donepezil would elicit measurable striatal dopamine (DA) release in patients […]
A serum protein-based algorithm for the detection of Alzheimer disease
Objective: To develop an algorithm that separates patients with Alzheimer disease (AD) from controls. Design: Longitudinal case-control study. Setting: The Texas Alzheimer’s Research Consortium project. Patients: We analyzed serum protein-based multiplex biomarker data from 197 patients diagnosed with AD and 203 controls. Main Outcome Measure: The total sample was randomized equally into training and test […]
