Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) affects brain parenchymal and leptomeningeal arteries and arterioles but sometimes involves capillaries (capCAA) with spread of the amyloid into the surrounding neuropil, that is, dyshoric changes. We determined the relationship between capCAA and larger vessel CAA, β amyloid (Aβ) plaques, neurofibrillary changes,(More)
CONTEXT Apathy in community-dwelling elderly individuals has been associated with a history of stroke and other cardiovascular disease. OBJECTIVE To assess the relationship between symptoms of apathy and cardiovascular risk factors or disease (stroke or other) in a large sample of elderly people aged 70 to 78 years without depression or dementia. DESIGN(More)
BACKGROUND Cardiovascular risk factors are associated with an increased risk of dementia. We assessed whether a multidomain intervention targeting these factors can prevent dementia in a population of community-dwelling older people. METHODS In this open-label, cluster-randomised controlled trial, we recruited individuals aged 70-78 years through(More)
BACKGROUND Subjects fulfilling the World Health Organisation clinical diagnostic criteria for Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) often have a different diagnosis at autopsy, including Alzheimer's disease. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is a common finding in Alzheimer's disease, and in rare cases this is particularly capillary CAA with dyshoric changes. (More)
BACKGROUND Systemic low-grade inflammation has repeatedly been associated with depression in old age, but the relationship with apathy is less clear. The present study assessed whether C-reactive protein (CRP) is differentially associated with symptoms of apathy and depression. METHODS A population-based cohort study was carried-out. At baseline and after(More)
OBJECTIVE Although depression is considered to be associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD), specifically symptoms of apathy have been strongly associated with a history of CVD in recent studies. In this study, we prospectively assess whether symptoms of apathy and depression are independent risk factors for incident CVD and stroke. METHODS We carried(More)
BACKGROUND In old age, both apathy and depression have been associated with an increased cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. This study evaluated the mediating role of cardiovascular risk factors in the relationship of apathy and mood symptoms with incident CVD. METHODS Prospective cohort study of 1,790 community-dwelling older individuals (70-78 years)(More)
