To assess the association between Mediterranean-type diet (MeDi) and change in brain MRI volumetric measures and mean cortical thickness across a 3-year period in older age (73-76 years).

Concepts: Magnetic resonance imaging, Cerebral cortex, The Association, Sunshine pop

201

To characterize effects of alemtuzumab treatment on measures of disability improvement in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) with inadequate response (≥1 relapse) to prior therapy.

Concepts: Better, Improve, Multiple sclerosis

Stroke and TIA are recognized complications of acute herpes zoster (HZ). In this study, we evaluated HZ as a risk factor for cerebrovascular disease (stroke and TIA) and myocardial infarction (MI) in a UK population cohort.

Concepts: Cohort study, Epidemiology, Myocardial infarction, Atherosclerosis, Herpes zoster

87

To evaluate the onset of efficacy of TEV-48125, a monoclonal antibody against calcitonin gene-related peptide, recently shown to be effective for the preventive treatment of chronic migraine (CM) and high-frequency episodic migraine.

Concepts: Calcitonin gene-related peptide

80

To determine if blood neurofilament light chain (NfL) protein can discriminate between Parkinson disease (PD) and atypical parkinsonian disorders (APD) with equally high diagnostic accuracy as CSF NfL, and can therefore improve the diagnostic workup of parkinsonian disorders.

Concepts: Medical terms, Parkinson's disease, Parkinsonism, Multiple system atrophy

74

To predict the risk of probable dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) competing with Alzheimer disease (AD) dementia by hippocampal volume (HV) in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) with impairments in amnestic or nonamnestic cognitive domains.

Concepts: Alzheimer's disease, Memory, Parkinson's disease, Hippocampus, Dementia, Lewy body, Dementia with Lewy bodies, Mild cognitive impairment

62

The purpose of the study was to determine the association between bilingualism and age at onset of dementia and its subtypes, taking into account potential confounding factors.

Concepts: The Association, Sunshine pop, 1970s music groups

50

To determine whether low vitamin D concentrations are associated with an increased risk of incident all-cause dementia and Alzheimer disease.

Concepts: Alzheimer's disease, Vitamin D, Pneumonia, Neurology, Dementia, Caregiving and dementia, Wandering, Sundowning

48

We hypothesize that the major consciousness deficit observed in coma is due to the breakdown of long-range neuronal communication supported by precuneus and posterior cingulate cortex (PCC), and that prognosis depends on a specific connectivity pattern in these networks.

Concepts: Neuron, Brain, Cerebral cortex, Cerebrum, Brodmann area 24, Cingulate cortex, Posterior cingulate, Precuneus

48

To examine the association between alcohol consumption in midlife and subsequent cognitive decline.

Concepts: Middle age, Cognition, Gerontology, Old age, Ageing, Wine
