Dealing with a cohort that has different biological and medical demands requires pharmacists to pay particular attention to details when treating this subset of individuals. In this week, double-blind, multinational study NCToutpatients with AD Mini-Mental State Examination scores of were randomized to receive once-daily, mg, extended-release memantine or placebo.

We directly assessed the clinical trials’ evidence for memantine’s efficacy in mild Alzheimer disease AD. The aim of the present report was to examine the reliabilities of the subscale items and investigate their relationships with CGIC.

Current treatments for Alzheimer’s disease AD provide modest symptomatic relief but do not slow the progression of the disease. J Alzheimers Dis ;20 1: J Clin Psychopharmacol Aug;29 4: Kagawa University, Kita-gun, Kagawa, Vibic. Jpn J Geriatr Psychiatry.

First, the central raters watched the videotaped CIBIC interviews of patients and caregivers to assess the patients by subscales at baseline and after the follow-up period. Thus, for longer study duration, the assessment shows less reliability and objectivity. Read More View Article. Patients were randomized to donepezil 10 mg daily or placebo for 24 weeks.


The objective of this review was to consider available efficacy, tolerability, and safety data from studies of ChEIs in PDD.
