Clinical Trials [969 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Trial of DMXB-A in Schizophrenia

The study hypothesis is that 3-2,4 dimethoxybenzylidene anabaseine (DMXB-A), an orally administered nicotinic cholinergic agonist, will improve attention and other neuropsychological dysfu...

Nicotinic Receptors and Schizophrenia

This study proposes to conduct a clinical trial comparison of olanzapine and the combination of a nicotinic cholinergic agonist, 3-[2,4-Dimethoxybenzylidene]anabaseine (DMXB-A) with a dopa...

Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network (DIAN)

The purpose of this study is to identify potential biomarkers that may predict the development of Alzheimer's disease in people who carry an Alzheimer's mutation.

Imaging Inflammation in Alzheimer's Disease With 11C-ER176

This study is being done to learn about inflammation in the brain of those with Alzheimer's disease (AD). The purpose of this study is to determine if 11C-ER176 is able to accurately measu...

Blood Biomarker of Alzheimer's Disease (AD)

Currently, no cures or disease modifying therapies exist for Alzheimer's disease (AD). This is partially due to the inability to detect the disease before it has progressed to a stage wher...

PubMed Articles [14847 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

Elevated CSF GAP-43 is Alzheimer's disease specific and associated with tau and amyloid pathology.

The level of the presynaptic protein growth-associated protein 43 (GAP-43) in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) has previously been shown to be increased in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and thus may serve as an o...

An updated Alzheimer hypothesis: Complement C3 and risk of Alzheimer's disease-A cohort study of 95,442 individuals.

We tested the hypothesis that low plasma complement C3 is observationally and genetically associated with high risk of Alzheimer's disease.

A systems-based model of Alzheimer's disease.

The new National Institute on Aging and the Alzheimer's Association Research Framework for Alzheimer's disease has been developed to accelerate drug discovery and offer a common structure and language...

Sex-Related Reserve Hypothesis in Alzheimer's Disease: Changes in Cortical Thickness with a Five-Year Longitudinal Follow-Up.

Sex effects on the progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD) have received less attention than other demographic factors, including onset age and education.

A Retrospective Belgian Multi-Center MRI Biomarker Study in Alzheimer's Disease (REMEMBER).

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) acquisition/processing techniques assess brain volumes to explore neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease (AD).

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat ALZHEIMER DISEASE.

A progressive form of dementia characterized by the global loss of language abilities and initial preservation of other cognitive functions. Fluent and nonfluent subtypes have been described. Eventually a pattern of global cognitive dysfunction, similar to ALZHEIMER DISEASE, emerges. Pathologically, there are no Alzheimer or PICK DISEASE like changes, however, spongiform changes of cortical layers II and III are present in the TEMPORAL LOBE and FRONTAL LOBE. (From Brain 1998 Jan;121(Pt 1):115-26)

A carbamate-derived reversible CHOLINESTERASE INHIBITOR that is selective for the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and is used for the treatment of DEMENTIA in ALZHEIMER DISEASE and PARKINSON DISEASE.

A biochemical phenomenon in which misfolded proteins aggregate either intra- or extracellularly. Triggered by factors such as MUTATION, POST-TRANSLATIONAL MODIFICATIONS, and environmental stress, it is generally associated with ALZHEIMER DISEASE; PARKINSON DISEASE; HUNTINGTON DISEASE; and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS.
