  • Feasibility of Conducting Nonpharmacological Interventions to Manage
           Dementia Symptoms in Community-Dwelling Older Adults: A Cluster Randomized
           Controlled Trial
    • Authors: Juyoung Park, Magdalena I. Tolea, Diane Sherman, Amie Rosenfeld, Victoria Arcay, Yve Lopes, James E. Galvin
      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      This study assessed the feasibility of conducting 3 nonpharmacological interventions with older adults in dementia, exploring the effects of chair yoga (CY), compared to music intervention (MI) and chair-based exercise (CBE) in this population. Using a cluster randomized controlled trial (RCT), 3 community sites were randomly assigned 1:1:1 to CY, MI, or CBE. Participants attended twice-weekly 45-minute sessions for 12 weeks. Thirty-one participants were enrolled; 27 safely completed the interventions and final data collection (retention rate of 87%). Linear mixed modeling was performed to examine baseline and longitudinal group differences. The CY group improved significantly in quality of life compared to the MI group (CY mean = 35.6, standard deviation [SD] = 3.8; MI mean = 29.9, SD = 5.3, P = .010). However, no significant group differences were observed in physical function, behavioral, or psychological symptoms (eg, for mini-PPT: slopetime = 0.01, standard error [SE] = 0.3, P = .984 in the CBE group; slopetime = −0.1, SE = 0.3, P = .869 in the MI group; slopetime = −0.3, SE = 0.3, P = .361 in the CY group) over the 12-week intervention period. Overall, this pilot study is notable as the first cluster RCT of a range of nonpharmacological interventions to examine the feasibility of such interventions in older adults, most with moderate-to-severe dementia. Future clinical trials should be conducted to examine the effects of nonpharmacological interventions for older adults with dementia on health outcomes.

  • Physical Activity in Severe Dementia Is Associated With Agitation Rather
           Than Cognitive Function
    • Authors: Daiki Ishimaru, Hiroyuki Tanaka, Yuma Nagata, Shinichi Takabatake, Takashi Nishikawa
      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Background:The authors examined associations between physical activity, cognitive function, activities of daily living, and behavioral and psychological dementia symptoms (BPSD) in severe and moderate dementia.Methods:A cross-sectional study was conducted to assess severe and moderate dementia groups according to the Clinical Dementia Rating. An actigraphy measured physical activity. Other measures included Mini-Mental State Examination, Cognitive Test for Severe Dementia, Hyogo Activities of Daily Living Scale, and Neuropsychiatric Inventory-Nursing Home.Results:Sixty-three participants were assessed (mean age = 89.3 ± 6.4). Physical activity was not associated with cognitive function among participants with severe dementia, although there was a trend-level association with cognitive function among those with moderate dementia. Physical activity was significantly associated with BPSD, specifically agitation/aggression symptoms, for participants with severe dementia, and there was a trend-level association with anxiety for participants with moderate dementia.Conclusions:Physical activity appears to be associated with BPSD among individuals in the advanced stages of dementia.

  • Gender Differences in the Association Between Hearing Loss and Cognitive
           Function
    • Authors: Bowen Huang, Guilan Cao, Yanran Duan, Siyu Yan, Mingming Yan, Ping Yin, Hongwei Jiang
      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Objective:This study aimed to determine the association between hearing loss and cognitive function by gender in a nationally representative sample of older adults.Methods:We used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2010-2011) for 655 participants aged 60 to 69 years. The cognitive functioning component consisted of the Consortium to Establish a Registry for Alzheimer’s disease, the Animal Fluency Test, and the Digit Symbol Substitution Test. We created a composite z score to represent global cognitive function. Regression models were used to examine the association between hearing loss and cognitive function.Results:Moderate/severe hearing loss was significantly associated with lower composite z score in males (β = −28.67, 95% confidence interval [95% CI] = −57.13 to −0.20) but not in females (β = −8.82, 95% CI = −36.61 to 18.96).Conclusion:There were gender differences in the association between hearing loss and cognitive function. Future studies need to investigate these gender-specific associations.

  • Impact of Zumba on Cognition and Quality of Life is Independent of APOE4
           Carrier Status in Cognitively Unimpaired Older Women: A 6-Month Randomized
           Controlled Pilot Study
    • Authors: Cynthia M. Stonnington, Janina Krell-Roesch, Dona E. C. Locke, Joseph G. Hentz, Amylou C. Dueck, Yonas E. Geda, Pierre N. Tariot, Richard J. Caselli
      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Objective:To investigate the association of a 6-month Zumba intervention with cognition and quality of life among older cognitively unimpaired apolipoprotein ∊4 (APOE4) carrier and noncarrier women.Methods:Fifty-three women were randomly assigned to either twice-weekly Zumba group classes or maintenance of habitual exercise (control group) for 6 months. At baseline, 3, and 6 months, all participants underwent neuropsychological, physical activity, and quality-of-life assessments.Results:Overall, neuropsychological test scores and level of physical activity did not differ between intervention and control groups at any time. However, compared to the control group, quality of life was higher at 3 months, and visuospatial working memory and response inhibition improved more in the intervention group by 6 months. Apolipoprotein ∊4 status did not affect the results.Discussion:Zumba may strengthen performance on visuospatial working memory among cognitively unimpaired older women but this needs to be tested in a larger clinical trial.

  • An Experimental Pilot Study of Global Postural Reeducation Concerning the
           Cognitive Approach of Patients With Alzheimer’s Disease
    • Authors: Jasemin Todri, Orges Lena, José Luis Martínez Gil
      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Several recent studies have examined the positive effects of physical exercise and equilibrium on individuals with neurodegenerative diseases.Objectives:In this sense, this study based on an experimental design, tested whether global postural reeducation (GPR) can affect equilibrium and cognition, life quality, and psychological symptoms of patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD).Methods:One hundred thirty-five participants with mild and moderate AD diagnosis were assigned to 2 groups: experimental group (EG, n = 90) and control group (CG, n = 45). The GPR therapy was implemented in the EG for 6 months, while both groups underwent neuropsychological assessments prior and after the 6-month period.Results:According to the repeated measures of analysis of variance, significant differences between groups were found at the 6-month follow-up period, in benefit of the EG such as Mini-Mental State Examination (P = .000), Geriatric Depression Scale (P = .000), Neuropsychiatric Inventory (P = .000), quality of life in AD/patient (P = .000), quality of life in AD/caregivers (P = .000), Barthel index (P = .000), and Tinetti Scale (P = .000), while the CG showed a low performance in the neuropsychological tests.Conclusions:We suggest that GPR is a therapeutic option, which can improve the psychological, physical, and cognitive aspects of patients with AD.

  • The Quality of Interactions Between Staff and Residents With Cognitive
           Impairment in Nursing Homes
    • Authors: Anju Paudel, Barbara Resnick, Elizabeth Galik
      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Background:Positive and effective staff–resident interactions are imperative to adequately assess and meet the needs of cognitively impaired residents in nursing homes and optimize their quality of life.Aim:The purpose of this study was to quantify, describe, and analyze the interaction between staff and cognitively impaired residents in nursing homes, using the Quality of Interaction Schedule (QuIS).Method:This descriptive analysis utilized baseline data from the first 2 cohorts in a randomized clinical trial including 341 residents from 35 nursing homes.Results:Five hundred fifty-six staff–resident interactions were evaluated; majority were positive (n = 466, 83.8%) and the remaining were either neutral (n = 60, 10.8%) or negative (n = 30, 5.4%). The quality of interactions varied by interaction location, interpersonal distance, and resident participation.Conclusion:Future research should focus on decreasing the negative/neutral interactions and explore staff characteristics (eg, gender, level of experience) and facility factors (eg, size, ownership) that might influence the quality of interactions.

  • Treatment Indications in Clinical Practice and Applied Research on
           Psychosocial Interventions for People With Dementia
    • Authors: Kevin Charras, Moustapha Dramé
      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      A recent review of Cochrane meta-analyses on psychosocial interventions (PIs) concludes that clinical trials fail to confirm PIs effective for all types of dementia at every stage of the disease. This article describes how and to what extent it is necessary to identify treatment indications when researching PIs and employing them in clinical practice. Twelve Cochrane reviews on PIs for people with dementia, selected because of their systematic methodology, were searched to identify outcomes related to treatment indications (dosage, type of dementia, severity…). The authors identified several research and practice issues that related to treatment indications: sample profiling, hypothesizing and statistical interpretation, external validity, effectiveness of interventions, contraindications and limits of interventions, and tailoring. Developing an effective PI requires empirical, developmental, exploratory, and confirmatory development stages to achieve credibility and robustness.

    • Authors: Ting Choo, Yoram Barak, Ali East
      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Background:The creative use of reminiscent music and natural movements were reported to have positive effects on the well-being of older adults with cognitive impairment.Objectives:To explore the effects of the intuitive movement reembodiment (IMR) program on the quality of life (QoL) of older adults with dementia.Methods:Data collected from 22 participants were analyzed: group 1 (mild dementia), group 2 (moderate dementia), group 3 (advanced dementia). All study groups participated in 10 weekly sessions. Self-reported QoL ratings were gathered through using the World Health Organisation (WHO)-5 questionnaire, alongside qualitative evidence recorded through onsite observation.Results:Statistically significant improvement in QoL was demonstrated after session 6. The qualitative analysis showed that the IMR sessions provided a sense of humor, imagination, and intuition that motivated the participants to dance and interact with joy.Conclusion:These preliminary positive findings need to be replicated in a larger randomized controlled trial.

      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Objective:The present report aims to evaluate whether singing intervention can bring an immediate benefit that is greater than the one provided by painting intervention on pain and well-being.Methods:Fifty-nine mild patients with Alzheimer disease were randomized to a 12-week singing (n = 31) or painting group (n = 28). In the present analysis, the immediate evolution of pain and well-being was compared across sessions between the 2 groups using mixed-effects models.Results:We observed a significant improvement in well-being for both singing and painting groups immediately after sessions, compared to the assessment before the sessions. We did not observe this improvement across the sessions for pain intensity measurement.Discussion:Our results revealed that both painting and singing interventions provide an immediate benefit on the patients’ well-being.

      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Dementia with Lewy bodies is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder, clinically characterized by gradual cognitive impairment and fluctuating cognition, behavioral changes and recurrent visual hallucinations, and autonomic function and movement symptoms in the type of parkinsonism. It is the second most common type of dementia in the Western world after Alzheimer disease. Over the last 20 years, many neurophysiological, neuroimaging, and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers have been described toward a better discrimination between dementia with Lewy bodies, Alzheimer disease, and other neurodegenerative conditions.In the present review, we aim to describe the neurophysiological, imaging, and CSF biomarkers in dementia with Lewy bodies and to question whether they could be reliable tools for the clinical practice.

      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the main causes of dementia in senium and presenium. It is clinically characterized by memory impairment, deterioration of intellectual faculties, and loss of professional skills. The cerebellum is a critical part in the distributed neural circuits participating not only in motor function but also in autonomic, limbic, and cognitive behaviors. In present study, we aim to investigate the morphological changes in the Purkinje cells in different cerebellar regions in AD and to correlate them with the underlying AD pathology. Purkinje cells exhibit significant morphometric alterations in AD and prominently in the anterior lobe which is related to higher cognitive functions. The present study gives new insights into the cerebellar pathology in AD and confirms that Purkinje cells pathology is a key finding in AD brains and that AD is characterized by regional-specific atrophy picked in the anterior cerebellar lobe.

      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Purpose:To determine the association of serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) and vitamin D levels with cognition status in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).Methods:A total of 173 patients with T2DM were recruited and divided into mild cognitive impairment (MCI) group (n = 94) and normal cognition (NC) group (n = 79). Levels of IGF-1 and 25(OH)D were measured and compared, and the correlations among IGF-1, 25(OH)D, and cognitive function were analyzed.Results:Insulin-like growth factor 1 and 25(OH)D levels significantly decreased in MCI group than those in the NC group (both P < .001). Multiple stepwise regression analysis revealed that IGF-1 (β = .146, P < .001) and 25(OH)D (β = .199, P < .001) independently predicted Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) scores. Partial least square regression showed that contributions of both 25(OH)D (P < .001) and IGF-1 (P < .001) to MoCA scores were significant, while no cross-effect was observed between them (P = .714).Conclusions:Low serum IGF-1 and 25(OH)D levels may separately predict poor cognitive performance in patients with diabetes.

      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Background:We assessed implicit and explicit emotion in older patients with dementia using biosignals.Methods:Fifty patients with dementia and 34 healthy individuals watched 3 videos that aimed to elicit various emotional responses. Electroencephalogram and heart rate variability were recorded.Results:Patients with dementia experienced less fun and more fear than controls. The high frequency (HF) from the baseline in response to funny stimulation as well as HF from neutral to fear stimulation in the dementia group increased further than in the control group. The slow wave (SW)–fast wave (FW) ratio from neutral to funny stimulation in the control group increased further than in the dementia group. The SW-FW from neutral to fear stimulation was further decreased in the dementia group than in the control group.Conclusions:Although patients with dementia were more sensitive to implicit affect, they showed more enhanced imbalance between positive and negative affect in explicit affect assessment.

      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Background:The most common type of dementia is an Alzheimer’s disease which is a major concern in growing chronic diseases in the geriatric society, and its connection with biochemistry has not been sufficiently understood.Objective:This study aims to evaluate the effects of blood biochemistry on Alzheimer’s disease.Method:Eight participants aged 55+ with Alzheimer’s disease were analyzed. A cross-sectional work has conducted. Eighty patients have been divided into 2 groups as group A and group B according to laboratory findings including glycosylated hemoglobin, high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TGA), vitamin D, folic acid, and vitamin B12. Mean Mini-Mental State Examination scores between these different 2 groups have been compared.Results:High levels of HDL, vitamin D, and folic acid correlate with cognitive scores, whereas high levels of total cholesterol, HbA1c, LDL show a negative effect on cognition scores.Conclusion:High-density lipoprotein, vitamin D, folic acid, cholesterol, HgA1c, and LDL have an effect on dementia.

      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      The aim of this study is to investigate the impact of optimal antihypertensive medication on cognitive function. In this 6-month clinical trial, 248 adults were randomly selected by a registry of hypertensive-treated patients (based on a National Hypertension Treatment Program), followed health centers located in Rafsanjan County, Southeast, Iran. Blood pressure was measured 3 times in each appointment pre- and posttreatment. Mini-Mental State Examination was used for cognitive performance evaluation. Paired t test and multiple regression model showed significant correlation between “the differences of systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels” and “cognitive performance in treated patients more than 40 years old.” Cognitive performance was not significantly different in patients less than 40 years old post antihypertensive treatment. Cognitive performance scores demonstrated significant increase in responders more than 40 years old post antihypertensive treatment. Antihypertensive treatment in responders with age equal or more than 40 years improves the level of cognitive performance significantly.

      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Aim:The aim of this article was to examine associations between metabolic syndrome and its individual components with cognitive function among rural elderly population in northeast China.Methods:Our study included 1047 residents aged older than 60 years in a northeast rural area. All were interviewed and data were obtained including sociodemographic and medical histories. Cognitive function was assessed by Mini-Mental State Examination. Metabolic syndrome was defined by NCEP-ATP III.Results:After adjusted for confounding factors, metabolic syndrome was inversely associated with cognitive function (odds ratio [OR] = 1.79; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.06-3.01) especially in participants aged less than 70 years old (OR = 2.60; 95% CI: 1.27-5.26). In addition, participants with metabolic syndrome had worse language function, which is a part of cognitive function (OR = 2.64; 95% CI: 1.39-5.00). Individual metabolic syndrome components, especially abdominal obesity and hyperglycemia, had significant association with cognitive function (OR = 0.72, 95% CI: 0.56-0.92 and OR = 1.41; 95% CI: 1.12-1.78, respectively).Conclusions:Abdominal obesity might be a protective factor for cognitive function. However, hyperglycemia might be a risk factor.

      Abstract: American Journal of Alzheimer's Disease & Other Dementias®, Ahead of Print.
      Objectives:This study examined the efficacy of the General Practitioner Assessment of Cognition–Chinese version (GPCOG-C) in screening dementia and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) among older Chinese.Methods:Survey questionnaires were administered to 293 participants aged 80 or above from a university hospital in mainland China. Alzheimer disease and MCI were diagnosed in light of the National Institute on Aging and the Alzheimer’s Association (NIA/AA) criteria. The sensitivity and specificity of GPCOG-C and Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) in screening dementia and MCI were compared to the NIA/AA criteria.Results:The GPCOG-C had the sensitivity of 62.3% and specificity of 84.6% in screening MCI, which had comparable efficacy as the NIA/AA criteria. In screening dementia, GPCOG-C had a lower sensitivity (63.7%) than the MMSE and a higher specificity (82.6%) higher than the MMSE.Conclusions:The GPCOG-C is a useful and efficient tool to identify dementia and MCI in older Chinese in outpatient clinical settings.
