Relationship Between Amyloid-β Positivity and Progression to Mild Cognitive Impairment or Dementia over 8 Years in Cognitively Normal Older Adults.
BACKGROUND: Preclinical Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is defined by cerebral amyloid-β positivity (Aβ+) in cognitively normal (CN) older adults. OBJECTIVE: To estimate the risk of progression to the symptomatic stages of AD due to PET Aβ+ and […]
The National Institute on Aging and the Alzheimer’s Association Research Framework for Alzheimer’s disease: Perspectives from the Research Roundtable.
The Alzheimer’s Association’s Research Roundtable met in November 2017 to explore the new National Institute on Aging and the Alzheimer’s Association Research Framework for Alzheimer’s disease. The meeting allowed experts in the field from academia, industry, […]
INTRODUCTION: In patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment, structural changes in the retina (i.e., reduced thicknesses of the ganglion cell and retinal nerve fiber layers and inclusion bodies that appear to contain beta-amyloid […]
Feasibility of baseline neurocognitive assessment using Cogstate during the first month of therapy for childhood leukemia.
PURPOSE: Neurocognitive impairment is frequently observed among acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) survivors within the domains of intelligence, attention, processing speed, working memory, learning, and memory. However, few have investigated treatment-induced changes in neurocognitive function during the […]
OBJECTIVE: We assessed a blood-based signature, which previously demonstrated high accuracy at stratifying individuals with high or low neocortical β-amyloid burden (NAB), to determine whether it could also identify individuals at risk of progression to Alzheimer […]
