RESULTS

Found (107) clinical trials

The primary objective of this study is to determine whether treatment with an oral investigational drug can slow cognitive decline compared with placebo treatment in individuals who are asymptomatic but at high risk for Alzheimer's disease. Asymptomatic means that the individual is not currently experiencing any symptoms of memory loss ...

Phase

Study Description: CREAD2 is a Phase 3 study investigating the effect of an investigational drug in the form of an infusion on Alzheimer's disease progression in individuals with prodromal to mild Alzheimer's disease. The study drug, crenezumab, is a monoclonal antibody that targets amyloid-beta proteins in the brain. The study ...

Dopaminergic Enhancement of Learning and Memory in Healthy Adults and Patients With Dementia/Mild Cognitive Impairment

Prior work of our group shows that the dopamine precursor levodopa markedly improves word learning success in healthy subjects. In this randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind trial, we probe whether administration of levodopa improves learning performance as compared to placebo administration on neuropsychological tests and in an associative learning paradigm. We postulate ...

Phase

Memantine for Agitation in Dementia

Agitation is a cause of morbidity and mortality in Alzheimer's due to distress and use of medication with side effects. Memantine has beed shown to be associated with less agitation and a recent study by forrest pharmaceuticals failed to recruit. We will perform a 12 week rct in 164 patients ...

Phase

Donepezil and Brain Activity Patterns in Those at Risk For Alzheimer's Disease

HYPOTHESIS 1. Cognitively intact individuals with normal brain morphology at genetic risk for developing Alzheimer's' Disease (AD) show alterations in brain activation patterns during tasks that require memory compared to similar individuals with lower risk for developing AD. 2. Donepezil, a cholinesterase inhibitor, can normalize such brain activation patterns in ...

Phase

An Innovative Psychosocial Intervention for Adult-Child Caregivers of Parents With Alzheimer's Disease

Caring for an elderly parent is a growing societal problem, and many studies have shown that caring for a person with dementia can have a negative impact on a caregiver's psychological and physical health, social life and career, and relationship with the patient. Stress and coping models proposed in the ...

Implementation Study of Dementia Guidelines in Primary Care

Background Early diagnosis of dementia benefits both patient and caregiver. Nevertheless, dementia in primary care is currently under-diagnosed in developed countries. In several countries educational interventions were developed to improve dementia diagnosis and management in primary care. Some of these interventions were successful in increasing the number of dementia diagnoses ...
