Clinical Trial to Evaluate the Efficacy and Security of Deep Brain Stimulation in Alzheimer s Disease

Approximately one million of Spaniards suffer from AlzhEimers Disease (AD) and this figure is expected to triple by 20150. The approved treatments modulate neurotransmission in general and are not specific or anatomically directed. In AD there is a dysfunction in cognitive and memory circuits. It has been shown that the ...

Phase N/A

Study of Degenerescence CSF Hallmarks in Older Bipolar Patients

Describe the profile of the 4 neurodegeneration's biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease dosed in the cerebrospinal fluid (Total Tau proteins, phosphorylated, A40 and A1-42) for old subjects suffering from bipolar disorder with or without cognitive impairment.

Phase N/A

3D Team Care for Cognitively Vulnerable Older Adults

This study addresses how to achieve better outcomes for cognitively vulnerable community-dwelling older adults and their families. Cognitive vulnerability means living with dementia, depression, and/or a recent episode of delirium (the 3Ds). Cognitive vulnerability in older adults is often overlooked by primary care and hospital-based providers, and represents a marker ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation and Characterization of Behavioural Disorders and Dementias by the Behavioural Dysexecutive Syndrome Inventory (BDSI)

Behavioural disorders are very common right from the initial stage of dementia and contribute to loss of autonomy. Behavioural dysexecutive disorders have a particular status due to their prevalence and their diagnostic importance, as they often constitute the initial symptoms of Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD), Semantic Dementia (SD) and Huntington's disease ...

Phase N/A

Co-LEsions in Alzheimer Disease and Related Disorders

One of the crucial challenges for the future of Alzheimer's disease (AD) therapeutic approaches in elderly is to target the main pathological process responsible for disability and dependency. However, a progressive cognitive impairment occurring after the age of 70 is often related to mixed lesions of neurodegenerative and vascular origins. ...

Phase N/A

Early Counseling and Support for Alzheimer's Disease Caregivers

This study will be a multicentre Umbrian PROBE design (treatment regimens are blinded to both caregivers and evaluators) with investigating the effectiveness comparing two active treatment "counseling and support" versus "educational group focusing on AD" in 230 primary caregivers of AD patients. If all inclusion criteria are met, the caregiver ...

Phase N/A

Evaluating the Relationship Between Tau PET Imaging and CSF Biomarkers of AD (Alzheimer Disease) in Humans

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate a new radioactive compound used in positron emission tomography (PET) scans in identifying tau tangles (a certain protein that might be associated with Alzheimer's disease) in the brain, and if the amount of tau tangles in the brain has a relationship ...

Phase

Pre-Clinical (Alzheimers) Diagnosis PCD = Optimum Outcomes OO

Prospective observational study participants age 50-75 years are identified who are currently (<1 month) taking or will soon (within 3 months) start taking study medications of interest thru their own physician. Prospective observational study participants are explained how persons can be cognitively normal but at high risk for developing clinical ...

Phase N/A

Triglyceride-rich Lipoprotein and Development of Dementia

Because of the rapid aging of the global population, dementia has become a serious problem, and Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia. Population studies have shown that dietary fats influence risk and progression of age-related diseases including AD, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Consumption of saturated fat, ...

Phase N/A

Intervention to Improve Shared Decision Making Among Seniors With Dementia Their Caregivers and Healthcare Providers

Background: The increasing prevalence of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia causes new challenges in primary care. Indeed, primary care providers point to a need for more training to care for this population, especially seniors presenting behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia. They also find the inter-professional nature of ...
