The purpose of this study is to determine whether movement-oriented dementia care has a positive effect on quality of life and independence in activities of daily living (ADL) in nursing-home residents with dementia. It was hypothesized that movement-oriented dementia care has a positive effect on quality of life and independence in ADL, as well as on mood, behavior, cognition and physical functioning, in comparison to regular care.
This project aims to leverage existing data from a large observational prospective study on dementia, the Three-City study, to investigate the relationship between intakes of polyphenols and the risk to develop dementia in the 12 years following dietary assessment.
The purpose of this study is to use a brain imaging method called PIB PET to determine dementia subtypes in patients with Parkinson's disease. The ultimate goal of this project is to be able to identify individuals with PD who are at risk of developing dementia, and to distinguish the underlying cause of dementia.
The purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and effective to give CPI-1189 to patients with AIDS dementia. Advanced HIV infection can cause AIDS dementia (brain damage due to HIV leading to loss of memory and muscle control). CPI-1189 may be able to postpone AIDS dementia or slow it down.
This pilot study seeks to examine the extent to which, relative to usual care, a dementia care management program for veterans and their caregivers (CGs)improves patient (e.g., behavioral symptoms, delayed nursing home placement) and caregiver (e.g., CG mastery, burden, affect) outcomes.
The purpose of this research study is to compare the effectiveness of Zolpidem CR to that of placebo in improving sleep efficiency in people with dementia admitted to the hospital because of their symptoms. You can participate in this study if you have dementia of the Alzheimer's type or vascular dementia. This study involves placebo; a placebo is a tablet that looks exactly like Zolpidem CR, the study drug, but contains no active study drug. We will use placebos to see if the...
The study is designed to determine the diagnostic efficacy of the visual assessment of SPECT scans in differentiating between probable dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) and non-DLB dementia subjects determined by the clinical diagnosis of an independent expert consensus panel used as the standard of truth.
This study will compare the clinical efficacy and safety of Voluven® and Human Albumin during elective open-heart surgery in pediatric patients.
The purpose of this study is to develop an effective, low-cost, telephone-based intervention to reduce anxiety, depression, and feelings of burden and stress in caregivers of patients with dementia. This study will also determine whether the intervention can alter the course of dementia.
Hepatorenal syndrome is a common complication of cirrhotic patients. The prognosis of patients with HRS is very poor. It have been demonstrated that vasoconstrictors agents (Terlipressin) plus albumin are effective in the reversal of the treatment. However, previous studies are pilot studies and they are not able to give information about an improvement in survival. This comparative randomized study was delineated to test the efficacy of terlipressin on survival.
Weekly Nanoparticle Albumin-Bound Paclitaxel (Abraxane) + Weekly Cetuximab + Radiation Therapy (IMRT, Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy) in Patients With Stage III-IVB Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma (HNSCC)
For patients with this type of cancer, one standard treatment option is cetuximab (Erbitux®) + radiation. We wish to study the addition of albumin-bound paclitaxel (Abraxane®) to this standard regimen of cetuximab + radiation. Albumin-bound paclitaxel and cetuximab both are chemotherapy drugs which are administered by vein. Previous studies have shown that albumin-bound paclitaxel can kill head and neck cancer cells when given alone or in combination with chemotherapy. The p...
In cohort studies, a Mediterranean Dietary Pattern (MDP) has been consistently associated with reduced dementia incidence. The efficacy of a MDP to prevent dementia has never been directly demonstrated by RCTs, with existing research limited to cognition as a secondary outcome. Furthermore, despite their likely additive effects, the combined impact of Physical Activity (PA) and a MDP on dementia risk is unknown. MedEx-UK is a RCT that will evaluate the feasibility of a multi-d...
Objectives: The objective of this study was to assess prospectively the effectiveness of ultrasonic denture hygiene interventions in improving denture cleanliness among community-dwelling elders. Methods: A randomized clinical trial was conducted among community-dwelling elders, in which a total of 66 subjects who received upper metal framework removable partial dentures in the past five years were recruited randomly from a computerized database. They were randomly allocated in...
Alzheimer's disease (AD) and related forms of dementia currently affect over 400,000 individuals in Canada and the numbers of community dwelling older adults with AD is rapidly growing. AD is associated with over $15 billion annually in care costs. Most individuals with AD are under the care of primary care providers (PCPs) including family physicians and primary care nurses. The evaluation and management of AD is challenging for PCPs and the quality of care provided to older ...
Intervention Nurses Start Infants Growing on Healthy Trajectories (INSIGHT 2)-Long Term Follow-up will follow participants enrolled in the Intervention Nurses Start Infants Growing on Healthy Trajectories (INSIGHT) (NCT01167270) study from age 3 years through the developmentally important time at school-entry around age 6 years and into middle childhood at age 9.
Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP) is a common and frequently fatal complication of end-stage liver disease with a mortality of up to 10% primarily due to the development of kidney failure. Current standard practice is to treat this infection with broad spectrum antibiotics and salt-poor albumin administration on day one and three of treatment. In this study the investigators test the hypothesis that the administration of a second dose of albumin at 48 hours only to pati...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether the infusion of albumin 4 gr per liter of ascites removed is as effective as the infusion of albumin 8 gr per liter of ascites removed in the prevention of post-paracentesis circulatory dysfunction
PCO patients will be assessed clinically,urine & blood samples will be tested. Systolic & diastolic blood pressure, serum glucose & insulin levels, lipid profile, C-reactive protein, complete hormonal profile, and Urinary albumin excretion will be measured.
Seventy-two pregnant patients diagnosed of minor or intermediate beta thalassemia with mild anemia were randomly assigned to treatment group and control group. Patients in the treatment group were given 15 g of Colla corii asini in powder form daily for 4 weeks while the control group were observed and followed up in the same period without any treatments. Levels of hemoglobin(Hb), serum iron (SI), serum ferritin (SF) and three types of hemoglobin components [adult hemoglobin (...
Whereas the advantageous effects of exercise-training on memory is increasingly recognized, the practicality and clinical usefulness of such interventions in community-dwelling older African Americans (AA)s Mild Cognitively Impaired (MCI) subjects, and the mechanism by which an effect occurs need elucidation. Because aerobic-exercise can improve emerging cardiovascular (CVD)-related risk factors for cognitive decline such as lipids, inflammatory cytokines and glucose homeostasi...
The number of people living with dementia is increasing as the population ages. The UK government has initiated a "Dementia strategy" to respond to this increase, and has set four main goals; 1) to identify those with dementia as early as possible, 2) to prolong their independence, 3) to reduce the need for hospital and nursing home admissions, and 4) to delay the time until death. So far lots of research has looked at what factors might cause or increase the risk of dementia,...
This study addresses how to achieve better outcomes for cognitively vulnerable community-dwelling older adults and their families. Cognitive vulnerability means living with dementia, depression, and/or a recent episode of delirium (the 3Ds). The investigators will test the effectiveness of a team care model focused on the 3Ds (Home Based Care Team) guided by nurse practitioners with expertise in geriatrics and geriatric psychiatry. Specific aims are to determine Home Based Care...
This study will use continuous glucose monitoring and actigraphy to examine whether a personalized, daily sleep extension intervention improves glucose regulation for community dwelling, sleep-restricted adults with pre-diabetes.
