There is ample evidence that autophagy is affected in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) but the causes, the nature of the dysfunction and the mechanisms of autophagy impairment are unclear. Autophagy depends on vesicular trafficking and membrane fusion, events that rely on several protein complexes and...
Roles of the Insulin-like Growth Factor-II/Cation-independent Mannose 6-phosphate Receptor and Cathepsin D in Alzheimer’s Disease PathologyDownload
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common type of senile dementia affecting the elderly. A critical contributing factor to the neurodegeneration and development of AD pathology stems from the processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP), leading to the generation of β-amyloid (Aβ) peptides....
Incidence and prevalence of dementia in linked administrative health data in Saskatchewan, Canada: A retrospective cohort studyDownload
Kosteniuk, Julie G., Crossley, Margaret, Teare, Gary F., Stewart, Norma J., Quail, Jacqueline M., Kirk, Andrew, Bello-Haas, Vanina Dal, O’Connell, Megan E., Forbes, Dorothy A., Morgan, Debra G., Innes, Anthea
Background Determining the epidemiology of dementia among the population as a whole in specific jurisdictions – including the long-term care population–is essential to providing appropriate care. The objectives of this study were to use linked administrative databases in the province of...
Background: The prevalence of dementia, a progressive and incurable condition that affects memory and daily function, is increasing worldwide. The perspective of people with dementia can be captured to better understand which factors impact quality of life for this particular population. Such...
Role of Glutamate and GABA in a mouse model expressing mutant human APP in the absence of NPC1 proteinDownload
Cholesterol plays a critical role in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) pathogenesis, but the underlying mechanisms remain unclear. To address this issue we have generated a line of ANPC transgenic mice that overexpress mutant-human amyloid precursor protein in the absence of cholesterol transporting...
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a complex neurodegenerative disorder believed to be triggered by the accumulation of β-amyloid (Aβ)-related peptides derived from the proteolytic processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP). Research over the last two decades has shown that alterations in the levels...
Objectives: The purpose of this review is to critically evaluate the available evidence from the published scientific literature on dementia care and service provision in rural and remote settings from the perspective of formal/paid caregiving, in order to assess the current state of knowledge,...
The processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP) by β- and γ-secretases produces amyloid β (Aβ) peptide, the principal component of the neuritic plaques found in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) pathology. The enzyme γ-secretase is a multimeric protein consisting of presenilins-1/2 (PS1/PS2), nicastrin,...
Use of autobiographical memory cues as cognitive support for episodic memory: Comparison of individuals with mild-stage Alzheimer's disease and healthy older adultsDownload
The purpose of the study was to examine the effectiveness of autobiographical memories to support the improvement of episodic memory (i.e., word recall) in patients with mild- stage Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and healthy older adults. Participants included 20 healthy young-old adults (M Age =...
Background. There is some evidence that physical activity delays the onset of dementia in healthy older adults and slows down cognitive decline to prevent the onset of cognitive disability. Studies using animal models suggest that physical activity has the potential to attenuate the...
