  1. 1. Predictors of Dementia Insulin, Fatty Acids and Vascular Risk Factors

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elina Rönnemaa; Uppsala universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dementia; Alzheimer’s disease; vascular dementia; insulin secretion; diabetes; fatty acids; epidemiology; vascular risk factors; Geriatrics; Geriatrik;

    Abstract : Identification of modifiable risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is crucial in order to diminish suffering from this devastating disease. The aim of this thesis was to investigate if different aspects of glucose metabolism, insulin, fatty-acid composition or other vascular risk factors predict the future development of AD and dementia.

  2. 2. Biochemical markers in dementia - Exploring Swedish registry data and the human proteome

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Tobias Skillbäck; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biomarkers; Dementia; Alzheimer s disease; Vascular dementia; Creutzfeldt Jakob disease; Lewy body dementia; Frontotemporal dementia; Parkinson s disease dementia;

    Abstract : Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers of neurodegenerative diseases have a wide scope of applications in diagnostics, prognosis assessment, disease staging, treatment evaluation and more. In this PhD project we aimed to expand the understanding of the properties of known CSF biomarkers of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other neurodegenerative diseases, including the most prevalent dementia disorders.

  3. 3. Comorbidity and vascular risk factors  associated with idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus the INPH-CRasH Study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Hanna Israelsson Larsen; Umeå universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hydrocephalus; normal pressure; vascular disease; vascular risk factors; elderly; depression; case control study; epidemiology; dementia; vascular dementia; small vessel disease; cerebrovascular disease; transient ischemic attack; neurologi; Neurology;

    Abstract : Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH) is a dementia treatable by insertion of a cerebrospinal fluid shunt. It has been suggested that INPH has similar pathophysiological mechanisms as cerebrovascular disease, but the vascular risk factor (VRF) profile of INPH patients has not been assessed using a modern epidemiological approach.

  4. 4. Vascular mechanisms in dementia with special reference to folate and fibrinolysis

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Nils-Olof Hagnelius; Örebro universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; dementia; Alzheimer’s disease; vascular dementia; folate; homocysteine; vitamin B12; CSF Serum folate ratio; fibrinolysis; tPA; PAI-1; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Geriatrics and medical gerontology; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Geriatrik och medicinsk gerontologi; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Geriatrik; Geriatrics; Medicin; Medicine;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to study the biomarker homocysteine and other novel potential vascular risk factors for dementia. In an out-patient based study of a cohort of 926 consecutive subjects referred to our Memory Unit during 1996―2000, serum-folate was lower and total plasma homocysteine (tHcy) and serum methyl malonate were higher in subjects being prescribed with B12.

  5. 5. Neuropathological findings and staging in dementia

    University dissertation from Dept of Pathology

    Author : Hans Brunnström; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer disease; concordance; dementia; diagnostics; frontotemporal lobar degeneration; grading; Lewy body disease; locus coeruleus; neuropathology; prevalence; staging; vascular dementia;

    Abstract : Dementia is a clinical syndrome with the development of impairment in multiple cognitive functions (including memory), severe enough to interfere with activities of daily living, as the main symptom. There are a large number of disorders that can lead to dementia, and neuropathological examination after death is necessary to determine the underlying cause with certainty. READ MORE
