The Alzheimer's disease (MY) is a major problem of public health. The French National Database Alzheimer ( BNA) registers(records) all the medical acts made by units of memory(report) and of independent specialists in France.
In 2008, the national Plan Alzheimer 2008 - 2012 had for objective to strengthen the search(research) on the Alzheimer's disease (MY) and for related disorders(confusions), to promote an early diagnosis and to improve at the same time the management of the patients and to support careers(quarries). A specific part(party) of this plan gave rise to the creation of the French national database Alzheimer ( BNA) to supply epidemiological data as well as indicators of activity. Since 2009 The information collected(taken in) in the BNA consists of a set(group) limited by data (CIMA of information minimum Corpus Alzheimer) concerning the demographic, clinical and diagnostic data defined by national consensus. The number of variables is limited to facilitate and to improve the participation in this national database. The participants are the Centers Report (CM)((LECTURE)) and Center Memory(Report) of Resources and Search(Research) (CMRR) and independent specialists. In 2015 more than 500 Centers send CIMA to the BNA.
The plan Disease Neurodegenerative 2014 - 2019 wishes to pursue and to amplify the BNA.

The purpose of this study is to test if the investigational medication ABT-089 is a safe and effective treatment for Alzheimer's disease.
ALADDIN is a research study to investigate the safety and effectiveness of leuprolide (a hormone drug) to improve the cognitive function and slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD...
Observational studies have suggested that light-to-moderate alcohol consumption decreases the risk of Alzheimer's disease, but it is unclear if this association is causal.
Short telomeres might lead to increased risk of Alzheimer's disease, but observational analyses have been inconclusive and potentially confounded by the strong association of both telomere length and ...
Strong preclinical evidence suggests that exenatide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist used for treating type 2 diabetes, is neuroprotective and disease- modifying in Alzheimer's dise...
The prevalence, mortality, and healthcare impact of Alaska Native and American Indian (ANAI) people with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias (ADRD) are unknown.
Numerous results suggest the implication of infectious agents in the onset of Alzheimer's disease (AD).
A work that reports on the results of a clinical study in which participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions, but the investigator does not assign participants to specific interventions (as in an interventional study).
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 work that reports on the results of a research study to evaluate interventions or exposures on biomedical or health-related outcomes. The two main types of clinical studies are interventional studies (clinical trials) and observational studies. While most clinical studies concern humans, this publication type may be used for clinical veterinary articles meeting the requisites for humans.

Of all the types of Dementia, Alzheimer's disease is the most common, affecting around 465,000 people in the UK. Neurons in the brain die, becuase 'plaques' and 'tangles' (mis-folded proteins) form in the brain. People with Al...
