Summary

The investigator will perform clinical studies to test the hypothsis that participants who had Alzhemer's disease will have different gut microbiota in the feaces as compared to participants who did not have Alzhemer's disease, as well as compared to their spouse.The investigators plan to perfoem the studies in 150 participants in Shanghai Tenth's People's Hospital.

Clinical Trials [1155 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

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...

Biodistribution of [11C]PIB in Patients With Risk Factors for Alzheimer's Disease

Participants enrolled in the Alzheimer's Disease Clinical Core at Wake Forest School of Medicine will be invited to take part in this study. The purpose of this study is to identify and me...

Effect of Choline Alphoscerate on Cognitive Function in Alzheimer's Dementia

This study will evaluate the performance of Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale-cognitive subscale (ADAS-cog) in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD).

PubMed Articles [15057 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

Interaction between APOE4 and herpes simplex virus type 1 in Alzheimer's disease.

Numerous results suggest the implication of infectious agents in the onset of Alzheimer's disease (AD).

miR-16-5p and miR-19b-3p prevent amyloid β-induced injury by targeting BACE1 in SH-SY5Y cells.

Alzheimer's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease, characterized by accumulation of amyloid β peptides. MicroRNAs have been identified as significant regulators and therapeutic targets...

Tau Aggregation Correlates with Amyloid Deposition in Both Mild Cognitive Impairment and Alzheimer's Disease Subjects.

Amyloid plaque and tau-containing neurofibrillary tangles are important features of Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the relationship between these processes is still debated.

A pilot study of exenatide actions in Alzheimer's disease.

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...

"Like He's a Kid": Relationality, Family Caregiving, and Alzheimer's Disease.

Spousal caregivers draw upon understandings of shifting relationality to maintain a familial understanding of their spouse with Alzheimer's disease. Working through what it means to think of an adult ...

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.
