Imaging Inflammation in Alzheimer's Disease

This study is being done to learn about inflammation and amyloid in Alzheimer's disease. A type of brain scan called a PET scan is used measure 1) inflammation and 2) abnormal accumulation of a the amount of a certain protein fragment called beta-amyloid (plaques) in the brain. These are thought to be involved in Alzheimer's disease. The investigators will also perform brain MRI and do tests to measure the participants' memory and thinking.


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 measure inflammation in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Both patients (with either mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or Alzheimer's disease) and healthy controls (participants without memory complaints or impairment) will be included in this study.

Study of the Effects of Current Drug Treatments on Levels of Certain Brain Chemicals in Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease is a medical illness that damages the brain and causes problems with memory, mood and behavior. A substance called acetylcholine (ACh), which is naturally produced in the body, plays an important role in the normal functioning of the brain. In subjects with Alzheimer's disease, the level of ACh is greatly reduced. Currently, there are three commonly prescribed drugs used for treating the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease by helping to maintain the level of ACh...


Evaluating Simvastatin's Potential Role in Therapy

The purpose of this study is to see how simvastatin, a cholesterol lowering drug, affects processes related to the development of Alzheimer's disease, including: 1) levels of a substance called beta-amyloid 42 found in the fluid surrounding the brain, 2) blood flow in the brain, 3) inflammation in the brain, and 4) the brain's handling of cholesterol.

Functional Brain Imaging of Medication Treatment Response in Mild Alzheimer's Disease Patients

The purpose of this study is to determine whether standard medications approved for Alzheimer's disease treatment differ in their action on brain functioning and whether any observed brain activity differences as result of treatment are associated with particular patterns of dementia improvement or reduced decline.

Imaging Tau in Alzheimer's Disease and Normal Aging

This study is being done to learn about tau tangles in Alzheimer's disease. A type of positron emission tomography (PET) scan is used to measure the abnormal accumulation of protein called tau in the brain. These are thought to be involved in Alzheimer's disease. The investigators will also perform brain MRI and to tests to measure the participant's memory and thinking.

PET Changes in Alzheimer's Disease (AD)

The purpose of this study is to identify the earliest predictors of memory and brain deterioration in pre-clinical Alzheimer's disease using positron emission tomography (PET) to monitor brain glucose metabolism.

The Relationship Between Neuropsychological Testing and MRI, PET and COBRE - Project 1: AIM 2 (GE-180)

The complex pathological cascades leading to both Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Parkinson's disease (PD) involve, at various points, inflammation. Since inflammation is a treatable symptom, understanding how and when it impacts the brain, and where specifically in the brain, would offer important guidance in the development of new treatments, sorely needed in both diseases. Microglia play an important anti-inflammatory role, and produce a substance, mitochondrial transloc...

Alzheimer's Disease Treatment With Combination of 40Hz Light and Cognitive Therapy

Electrical activity in the brain known as "gamma" brainwaves help connect and process information throughout the brain. These gamma waves are diminished in Alzheimer's disease. New research in Alzheimer's disease mouse models shows that exposure to light flickering at the rate of 40 flashes per second or 40Hz increased gamma brainwaves and led to clearing of beta amyloid plaques in the brain, a key abnormality in Alzheimer's disease. This project will test the ability of a nove...

Risk Evaluation and Education for Alzheimer's Disease - the Study of Communicating Amyloid Neuroimaging (REVEAL-SCAN)

This study is intended to examine the impact of learning amyloid brain imaging results among asymptomatic older adults, and how to safely communicate these results and educate on the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

Evaluation of [18F] PBR06 and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) as a Marker of Inflammation in Subjects With Neurological Conditions

The underlying goal of this study is to assess [18F] PBR06 PET imaging as a tool to detect microglial activation in the brain of Alzheimer Disease (AD), Parkinson Disease (PD) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) research participants.

TNF-Alpha Inhibition for Treatment of Alzheimer's Disease

It is widely believed that inflammation contributes to the pathogenesis of AD. TNF has been implicated in both AD and neurological inflammation. Anti-TNF therapy is therefore surmised to be of potential benefit for treating AD.

Brain Imaging Study Of Rosiglitazone Efficacy And Safety In Alzheimer's Disease

This is a placebo-controlled study evaluating the effects of rosiglitazone on functional brain activity and cognition in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's Disease (AD).

Safety Study of Passive Immunization for Patients With Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease

This research study will assess whether AAB-001 is safe, well tolerated and effective for use in patients with Alzheimer's Disease. AAB-001 is a new drug that is not available outside this study. AAB-001 is an antibody (a type of protein usually produced by white blood cells to destroy other substances in the body). In Alzheimer's disease a protein called amyloid gathers in the brain and is thought to cause symptoms like memory loss and confusion. It is hoped that AAB-001 w...

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 measure the amount of a protein called amyloid in the brain.It is thought that the build up of amyloid may be related to the development of Alzheimer's disease.

Since all patients will receive TEMT, each patient's baseline measurements will serve as thei...

High Frequency Light and Sound Stimulation to Improve Brain Functions in Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by significant memory loss and toxic protein deposits (amyloid and tau) in the brain. The investigators' lab found a non-invasive way to remove these toxic proteins from the brain in AD mouse models. Remarkably, treated mice also have improved memory on behavioral testing. The investigators aim to translate this non-invasive method, which uses light and sound to stimulate the brain, to be used in mild Alzheimer's patients. 40 participan...
