Of the 1.4 million nursing home (NH) residents in long term care facilities, more than half have Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Due to changes in their familiar daily routines, difficulty expressing their thoughts or asking for what they need, and overstimulation (such as noise) or under stimulation (such as lack of activity), individuals with dementia often display disruptive behaviors like resisting help or continually repeating the same phrases. Medications are often presc...
This project is based on a three-year program that aims to improve the knowledge of the socioeconomic consequences of dementia in Norway. By including patients with and without dementia in four different cohorts (from nursing homes, from memory clinics, home-dwelling persons with dementia and elderly persons without dementia), the project's aim is to describe tha course of dementia, the economical cost of dementia and to look into possible risk factors for dementia.

Dementia illness often co-exists with painful medical conditions associated with aging (e.g., degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis, skin ulcers, back pain, headaches, cancer, or angina). While the standard practice is pain assessment for all patients, the elderly with dementia have special needs for assessment, management, and evaluation. When they are unable to verbalize pain, objective measurement of their discomfort are possible manifestations of pain. No research rela...
The purpose of this study is to determine the neurologic and cognitive effects of playing tackle football in grade school and high school. During contact practices and games, players wear a football helmet containing an impact sensor. Before and after each season, players complete neurological testing to measure several different aspects of brain function. Two groups of football players will be in the study: 5th and 6th grade tackle football players from the Brighton B...
This is a 52-month study (8 months preparation; 36 months to conduct the trial; 8 months data analyses and manuscript preparation) of a cluster randomized controlled trial (RCT) of an intervention to improve infection management for suspected UTIs and LRIs among residents with advanced dementia (N=480; N=240/arm) living in NHs (N=24; N=12/arm). The NH is the unit of randomization as the intervention must be delivered at the facility level to avoid contamination and because this...
Malnutrition in older inpatients is a significant problem espicially among those with dementia. A number of methods have been used to tackle this issue and oral nutritional supplements (ONS) were proven to be the most effective way. However, they are limited by their poor tolerability due to lack of familiarity with these products. An alternative method is to fortify familiar food with protein, energy and micronutrient. thus, the aim of this study to test the feasibility and ac...
A Double-Blind, Randomized, Single-Dose, Parallel-Group Study in Healthy Volunteers to Assess the Bioequivalence of a 120 mg Denosumab Subcutaneous Dose When Administered as Denosumab CP4 Drug Product or as Commercially Available Denosumab CP2 Drug Produc
Approximately 140 male and female healthy subjects will be randomized (1:1 ratio) to receive a 120 mg single dose of denosumab either as a 1.7 mL single injection of 70 mg/mL denosumab CP4 (Treatment A) or as a 1.7 mL single injection of 70 mg/mL denosumab CP2 (Treatment B). Subjects will be admitted to the research facility on day -1 and remain in the research facility through day 2. The subjects will return to the research facility on an outpatient basis. The PK, PD, and safe...
Objectives: Specific mobility programs can delay the functional decline in people with dementia (PwD) and help to preserve their abilities of daily living. Respite care is a common used short time inpatient service (max. 4 weeks of stay) to support dementia care arrangements. Within the DESKK project, a concept is developed which complements and optimizes dementia-specific respite care through a mobility program and a counseling program. As one part of the DESKK study, i...
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the knowledge of parents and children with respect to dementia symptoms, risk factors, and response before and after an interactive dementia education program that uses music and dance to enhance a health education curriculum at 1-week and 3-months after the intervention.
The study has both quantitative and qualitative components. The objective of the quantitative study is: 1. To culturally adapt and refine Montessori activities for people living with dementia in Pakistan. 2. To determine the feasibility and acceptability of culturally-adapted group based Montessori intervention for people with dementia in Pakistan. 3. To build capacity and capability in dementia research (researcher training) The objective of th...
This study is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, fixed dose study currently being conducted on two geropsychiatric units at Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic. It seeks to evaluate the short-term safety and efficacy of citalopram and perphenazine in the treatment of 112 patients suffering from behavioral disturbances associated with dementia. Findings from this research may directly lead to improved acute pharmacotherapy for psychosis and behavioral problems ...

The study is being coordinated by the HRB Clinical Research Facility at University College Cork. The Principal Investigator is Dr Maeve Rooney, Consultant Psychiatrist in the Mercy University Hospital, Cork. The study will be carried out in collaboration with the HRB Clinical Research Facility in Dublin in prior to rolling out to other...
The purpose of this study is to use a brain imaging method called PIB PET VAT 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.
Studies have shown conflicting results of the effect of exercise on dementia patients. The aim of this study is to examine the role of physical activity on the risk of cognitive impairment and dementia in older persons. To promote the benefits of aerobic exercise on dementia patients and encourage exercise prescription in the management of dementia subjects.

The prevalence of illnesses associated with old age, including dementia, is rising significantly as the elderly population dramatically grows. The use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) after menopause may increase the risk of dementia and cognitive decline, but more research is needed to confirm this link.

Many older adults with dementia living in long-term care facilities experience depression and agitation, which cause angst and personal suffering. Prior to this research, evidence was inconclusive but indicated that bright light exposure may reduce depression and agitation in long-term care residents with dementia. The purpose of this study was to determine if the degree of improvement in depression and agitation scores over the course of eight weeks was significantly greater i...
The aim of this project is to study the safety and efficacy of anthocyanins in improving key dementia-related mechanisms and cognitive functioning in older people at risk for dementia. Secondary analyses will include a variety of biological measures, including biochemistry, imaging and cardiovascular measures.
