SOLFAMU Study of Nasal Brushing Collected OLFActory MUcosa Samples in the Diagnosis of Human Encephalopathies

Encephalopathies are a group of central nervous system (CNS) affection with heterogeneous etiology. Several causes have been recognized including neurodegenerative, vascular, infectious, autoimmune, toxic or allergic affections or secondary to systemic disorders. While 30-50% of acute encephalitis remains without etiological definition, definitive criteria for neurodegenerative diseases are usually unavailable in ...

Phase

Reshaping the Path of Vascular Cognitive Impairment (VCI)

A total of 88 adults diagnosed with vascular cognitive impairment will be randomized to either a 12-month twice-weekly resistance training program or stretch and relaxation program. There will be three measurement sessions: baseline, 6 months (midpoint of intervention period), and 12 months (end of intervention period).

Phase N/A

The Residential Care Transition Module

Emerging research on family caregiving and institutionalization has found that families do not disengage from care responsibilities following relatives' admissions to residential long-term care settings. Families instead remain involved in a spectrum of care activities ranging from instrumental activities of daily living to emotional support. Perhaps for these reasons, a ...

Phase N/A

Salsalate in Patients Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease

This is a Phase 1b, 12-month, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and preliminary efficacy of salsalate in patients with mild to moderate AD. Approximately 40 subjects will be randomized 1:1 to placebo or active. All study drugs will be administered orally bid [two placebo tablets ...

Prediction of Cognitive Properties of Memantine for Neurodegenerative Diseases

The aim of the present study is to test the effect of a 15-day treatment with memantine on a mixed battery associating cognitive assessment, imaging and neurophysiological tests in healthy volunteers. This multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled, cross-over study is double-blind controlled and is conducted in 3 centers located in France (Lille, ...

Phase

Exploration of the Enteric Nervous System in Alzheimer Disease

The close homology between the central and enteric nervous system suggests that a disease process affecting the central nervous system could also involve its enteric counterpart. The investigators have recently shown in that the enteric neurons can be readily analyzed using routine colonic biopsies. The investigators propose that the enteric ...

Phase N/A

UAB Alzheimer's Disease Center Core Cohort - Imaging Substudy

The primary objective of this study is to measure the concentration and the regional brain distribution of pathologic amyloid deposition using the PET tracer [C-11]PiB in participants in the UAB-ADC cohort. The amount and distribution of [C-11]PiB in the brain will be correlated to demographic, clinical, genetic, and biospecimen data ...

Phase

rTMS Treatment for Positive and Negative Symptoms of Schizophrenia

This study will examine the effects of rTMS on the negative and positive symptoms of schizophrenia using 2 treatments in sequence applied to related brain areas.

Phase

Neurophysiological Correlates of Cognitive Tasks in Healthy Volunteers -WP3 P003

In the perspective to better evaluate the efficacy of new treatment strategies for Alzheimer disease (AD), it appears important to develop experimental paradigms to precisely measure cognitive endpoints/biomarkers that may be used in healthy volunteers as tools to validate drug efficacy profile. The use of Electroencephalography (EEG) may be, therefore, ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Controlling Vascular Risk Factors on the Progression of Alzheimer's Disease

It is not currently known whether the optimum treatment of VRFs influences the progression and prognosis of Alzheimer's disease. Our starting hypothesis is that VRF control in Alzheimer's patients is associated with slower cognitive decline, less intense loss of personnel independence and fewer adverse events over the course of the ...
