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...
Alzheimer's disease is characterised by memory loss and difficulties with thinking. These problems may be due to a deficiency in a brain chemical called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine helps transmit messages between nerve cells. Acetylcholine is degraded by an enzyme called "acetylcholinesterase". ZT-1 is a new drug derived from a plant extract already used in China for memory disorders, which blocks the action of the enzyme and restores adequate levels of acetylcholine. T...
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.
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.
Background: Alzheimer disease (AD) is a debilitating brain disorder that affects over 4.75 million people in the US and Canada. People with AD have difficulty remembering general facts and previously experienced autobiographical events. Animal and human research demonstrates that this type of memory depends on neural function within specific brain areas, and that it may be possible to enhance memory with electrical stimulation of these brain areas. We have recently shown that d...
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.
Alzheimer disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder with a poorly understood pathology. It is an irreversible progressive brain disease that slowly deteriorates memory, thinking and behavior. It affects the elderly population and is also hereditary. The incidence doubles with every decade after sixty with no signs of leveling off. More than 35 million people Worldwide, including 5.5 million living in the United States, suffer from AD. As the United States population ages, it...
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...
This study plans to establish a large bank of blood, cerebral spinal fluid (CSF), imaging, and clinical data. These data and samples will be used for future research into the causes of Alzheimer's disease (AD), Down Syndrome (DS) and other diseases that cause thinking and memory problems. This future research will also study how treatments for these diseases work. This research may help develop new treatments for some diseases of the nervous system and help us understand these ...
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) in men 65 years and older with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease who reside in the community.
The purpose of the research is to see how simvastatin affects a substance in the body called beta-amyloid. Beta-amyloid is found in the brain and in the liquid around the brain and spinal cord. High amounts of beta-amyloid may be associated with a greater risk of getting Alzheimer's disease. This study will see if simvastatin can lower the amount of beta-amyloid in the spinal fluid. This study will also see if simvastatin affects memory and thinking, blood flow in the brain, an...
The purpose of the expanded study is to examine the effectiveness of a "Stand Up and Move More" intervention to reduce sedentary behavior in older adults from underserved communities.
The purpose of this research study is to use two different drugs to find where melanoma might spread and to remove these tissues. We believe that tumor cells from the melanoma first move through the lymphatic system (a system of clear fluid that moves around the body and carries white blood cells, much like the blood system) to a lymph node in an orderly way. If we can identify the first lymph nodes to receive a tumor cell, this can be removed and examined. We currently use ...
This is a research study about how family members make research participation decisions for a relative with Alzheimer's or a related dementia. The purpose of this study is to learn more about how proxies (the family member who makes decisions for that relative), would think through decisions about whether to enroll their relative in studies for not-yet-approved medications for Alzheimer's Disease. The long-term goal of the study is to improve the way researchers inform families...
This research project will address a desperate need for evidence on how diet could be used to treat and improve symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (AD). It has been estimated that 36 million people have dementia worldwide, and in older people Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60-70% of all dementia. Research supports the hypothesis that modifiable lifestyle-related factors are associated with cognitive decline, which opens new avenues for prevention or modification of disease. ...
Environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) is a poorly understood condition characterized by intestinal inflammation and loss of barrier function that is prevalent in regions of the world with inadequate sanitation and hygiene. EED is a major driver of malnourishment, poor neurological development, stunting, oral vaccine failure, and infection, affecting 25% of all children globally and causing over a million deaths each year. Progress towards understanding EED and developing eff...
