Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network (DIAN)

Dominantly inherited Alzheimer's disease (AD) represents less than 1% of all cases of AD and is an important model for study because the responsible mutations have known biochemical consequences that are believed to underlie the pathological basis of the disorder. Three major hypotheses will be tested: - First, that there ...

Phase N/A

Olanzapine for the Treatment of Appetite Loss in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

After randomization, there is a placebo-controlled parallel group treatment with 10 mg OLN in combination with the standard treatment of Riluzole (100mg/day)(Group 1) in comparison to treatment with placebo in combination with 100 mg RIL (Group 2). Study drug will be provided as 5 mg tablets. OLN will be begun ...

Phase

Copy Number Variations Inflammatory Cytokines and the Risk of Dementia

This is a hospital-based case-control study. We plan to assess the association of CNV and inflammatory cytokine with the risk of dementia. Hopefully to find some genetic biomarkers to identify the risk of dementia at an early stage.

Phase N/A

A Shared Decision Making Training for Inpatients With Schizophrenia

Patients suffering from schizophrenia who attend the communication skills program engage more deeply in therapeutic reasoning and treatment decisions. This results in stronger preferences to participate, greater perceived involvement and better long term adherence compared to patients who do not attend the training.

Phase N/A

Chronic Electrical Stimulation of Hypothalamus/Fornix in Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's Disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia for which no treatment has shown consistent efficacy to stop or slow down the disease. Recent report of enhancement of memory abilities by bilateral chronic deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the fornix in the hypothalamus suggests that neuromodulation of circuits ...

Phase

Prevalence and Recognition of Geriatric Syndrome in Outpatient Clinic at Srinagarind Hospital

The purpose of this study is to collect the prevalence of geriatric syndrome, which is recognized by an internist, and to compare the data based on the comprehensive geriatric assessment by a geriatrician. The secondary outcome is to develop a practical collected form for the internist.

Phase N/A

Magnetoencephalographic (MEG) Correlates of Negative Symptoms in Patients Suffering From Schizophrenia and Their Influence by Add-on Treatments

There is a paucity of information regarding electrophysiological correlates of negative symptoms in patients suffering from schizophrenia. The proposed study is set out to compare the MEG correlates of negative symptoms in patients suffering from schizophrenia to those of healthy controls in terms of both relevant ERP components and quantified ...

Phase

Implications of Amyloid Pathology

There is compelling evidence supporting amyloid as one of the key pathologic agents in AD. Autopsy studies suggest the amount and location of fibrillar amyloid deposition does not relate strongly to the degree and type of clinical impairment, compared to tau pathology and neuronal loss. A substantial percentage of individuals ...

Phase N/A

Evolution of Memory Related Activity

The development of biomarkers is now especially critical, as there are a number of promising disease-modifying therapies entering early phase clinical trials, with additional novel therapeutic strategies in development. It is essential to develop biomarkers that can detect a "signal of efficacy" over a relatively short time frame for use ...

Phase N/A

BrainGate2: Feasibility Study of an Intracortical Neural Interface System for Persons With Tetraplegia

The goal of the BrainGate2 research and development project is to identify the core methods and features for a medical device that could allow people with paralysis to recover a host of abilities that normally rely on the hands.
