Alzheimer Disease
  Follow Topic   Edit Search

Alzheimer Disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disorder in older individuals sixty years and older, typically characterized by memory problems and inability to independently perform activities of daily living. Common clinical presentations involve different degrees of memory impairment. Episodic memory for newly acquired information and declarative memory for facts and events are initially affected while memory of remote, procedural memory and motor learning are spared during early stages. With progression of the disease, language, visiospatial skills, abstract reasoning, and executive function deteriorate. Some individuals will also develop apraxia, alexia, and delusion. From the Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics, 35e.

Abstract: Purpose To assess the relative risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD) among patients with prostate cancer who received androgen deprivation therapy (ADT), after adjustment for other cancer therapies. Methods Data from demographics, survival, diagnoses codes, procedure codes, and other information about beneficiaries age 67 years or older in the Medicare claims database was assessed to determine the unadjusted and adjusted ...

... homeostasis or tissue changes induce several dynamic microglial processes, including changes of cellular morphology, surface phenotype, secretory mediators, and proliferative responses (referred to as an "activated state. Activated microglia represent a common pathological feature of several neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease (AD. Cumulative evidence suggests that microglial inflammatory activity in AD is increased while microglial-mediated clearance mechanisms are compromised.

To cross-sectionally study subjective memory complaints (SMC) in autosomal dominant Alzheimer disease (ADAD).We examined self-reported and study partner-based SMC in 52 young, cognitively unimpaired individuals from a Colombian kindred with early-onset ADAD. Twenty-six carried the PSEN-1 E280A mutation, averaging 7 years of age younger than the kindred's expected clinical onset.

Abstract: Alzheimer's disease (AD) causes alterations of brain network structure and function. The latter consists of connectivity changes between oscillatory processes at different frequency channels. We proposed a multi-layer network approach to analyze multiple-frequency brain networks inferred from magnetoencephalographic recordings during resting-states in AD subjects and age-matched controls.

Neuroimaging and other biomarker assays suggest that the pathological processes of Alzheimer's disease (AD) initiate years prior to clinical dementia onset. However some 30%-50% of older individuals that harbor AD pathology do not become symptomatic in their lifetime. It is hypothesized that such individuals exhibit cognitive resilience that protects against AD dementia.
