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.
The present study will test the hypothesis that the medication Ambroxol is safe and well tolerated and will improve cognitive and motor symptoms of Parkinson's Disease Dementia (PDD). Ambroxol has been shown to raise the levels of the enzyme beta-glucocerebrosidase resulting in lower the levels of the protein alpha-synuclein, both of which have been shown to improve cognition in mouse models. This will be a 52 week trial of Ambroxol in 75 patients with PDD. Patients will underg...
A brain PET scan is recognized as "reasonable and necessary" for some patients with "a recently established diagnosis of dementia" (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Decision Memo CAG-00088R, 2004), but evidence is less clear for patients having less severe cognitive problems. A substantial portion of such patients will develop Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, which affect millions of people in the U.S., costing us over $100 billion annually. This proj...
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.
In Western Countries, stroke and dementia are the main causes of long-term disability, dependency, and nursing home admission. Due to demographic trends a continuous increase of patient numbers can be expected. There is growing evidence that vascular risk factors which are implicated in the etiology of stroke also play important etiologic roles in both vascular dementia and Alzheimer disease. The present project is aimed at the reduction of stroke and dementia by means of a ...
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.
This study is being done to learn more about normal thinking and behavior, mild thinking and behavior problems, Frontotemporal Dementia and other forms of dementia in families in which one or more relatives have a mutation associated with Frontotemporal Dementia.
The purpose of this randomized controlled pilot study is to examine the preliminary effectiveness, feasibility, and potential treatment moderators (i.e., behavioral symptoms and spousal relationship status) of a newly developed intervention for individuals with dementia and their family caregivers that combines elements of the established care consultation (CC) approach with additional counseling modules (CC+C). Outcomes for Veterans with dementia and their family caregivers (e...
Neuroinflammation is increasingly implicated as a potential critical pathogenic mechanism in a variety of neurologic and psychiatric disorders. This study will use hybrid PET/MRI imaging to evaluate neuroinflammation and its relationship to cerebral perfusion in frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Patients with FTD will be recruited from the Cognitive Neurology and Aging Brain clinics at Parkwood Institute and will undergo neurocognitive assessment and MRI/PET using the PET ligand F...
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.
People with dementia have complex medical, social, and psychological needs and can be exacerbated by physical illness and the complex relationships between health care systems, patients and their families or caregivers. They are a vulnerable and fragile population that differs significantly from the population without dementia. Therefore, the investigators propose the following objectives: 1. To describe the evolution of dementia patients admitted during the study period in two...
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.
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.
Caring for a patient with dementia is associated with increased feelings of burden and depression. The proposed study will examine the efficacy of Family Intervention: Telephone Tracking - Dementia (FITT-Dementia), a multi-component, family-based, telephone intervention, as a tool to reduce caregiver stress.
The goal of the study is to learn about how possible benefits of movement and music for individuals with dementia. Individuals with dementia will participate in either a dance class or listen to live music. The study includes assessments of walking, balance and cognition.
