This study is to compare the safety and effects of donepezil (Aricept) or if it decreases memory loss after receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer.
A randomized, placebo controlled, double-blind, parallel group Phase 3 design will be used to assess the effect of 24 weeks of donepezil on cognitive function (memory) in breast cancer survivors who report having cognitive dysfunction and demonstrate memory impairment 1-5 year post chemotherapy. Patients who meet the eligibility criteria will be stratified by age (<50, 50-59, 60-69, ≥70) and randomized to donepezil or placebo with equal probability.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

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.
