Objective: To determine the independent and synergistic effects of amyloid and small vessel disease (SVD) burden on longitudinal cognitive decline in patients with subcortical vascular dementia (SVaD). Methods: A longitudinal cohort study was conducted involving patients from outpatient clinics of 2 tertiary referral centers. Sixty-one patients with SVaD were prospectively recruited and underwent MRI, 11C–Pittsburgh compound B (PiB) PET at baseline, and a 3-year annual neuropsychological follow… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

MRI load of cerebral microvascular lesions and neurodegeneration, cognitive decline, and dementia
TLDR
Both cerebral microvascular lesion and neurodegeneration loads are strongly associated with cognitive decline and dementia in older people and the modifying effect of the APOE genotype on these associations is found to be exacerbated by APOE ε4.
Additive effect of cerebral atrophy on cognition in dementia-free elderly with cerebrovascular disease
TLDR
Atrophy and moderate-severe CeVD burden showed an additive effect on global and domain-specific cognitive performance, particularly in the pre-dementia stage.
Associations between cerebral amyloid and changes in cognitive function and falls risk in subcortical ischemic vascular cognitive impairment
TLDR
Symptoms associated with SIVCI may be amplified by secondary Aβ pathology, and the unique contribution of Aβ on changes in cognitive function and falls risk at 12-months after controlling for experimental group and baseline performance is determined.
Protective effects of APOE e2 against disease progression in subcortical vascular mild cognitive impairment patients: A three-year longitudinal study
TLDR
It is suggested that, in svMCI patients, APOE2 has protective effects against amyloid-ß accumulation, cortical thinning, and cognitive decline, and the APOE genotype did not show significant effects on small vessel disease progression.
White Matter Hyperintensities Potentiate Hippocampal Volume Reduction in Non-Demented Older Individuals with Abnormal Amyloid-β.
TLDR
The results revealed that abnormal Aβ and lacunar infarct presence were independently associated with lower HV in the non-demented individuals, and relatively early on in the disease process older individuals with abnormal A β levels are at an increased risk of accelerated disease progression when concomitant cSVD is present.
Amyloid Positivity in the Alzheimer/Subcortical-Vascular Spectrum
TLDR
The analysis of Aβ positivity involving a large sample classified according to the stratified cognitive states and WMH severity indicates that Alzheimer and cerebral small vessel diseases lie on a continuum.
Effects of Lewy body disease and Alzheimer disease on brain atrophy and cognitive dysfunction
TLDR
Concomitant ADCI and LBCI are associated with the accentuation of neurodegeneration to widespread association cortices, and both diseases contribute to visuospatial dysfunction.
Biomarkers of Alzheimer's Disease and Cerebrovascular Lesions and Clinical Progression in Patients with Subjective Cognitive Decline: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
Aβ 42, or combinations of Aβ 42 and tau may be useful biomarkers in identifying individuals with SCD who will progress to MCI/AD, and structural MRI and cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers identified with structural MRI were less conclusive.
The influence of life course vascular risk on brain pathologies and cognition in later life - a neuroimaging study of the British 1946 birth cohort
TLDR
Findings show that vascular risk factors influence late-life dementia risk through cerebral SVD and brain atrophy, and reinforce the importance of vascular risk management, starting at least in midlife, for reducing late- life dementia risk.

Effects of cerebrovascular disease and amyloid beta burden on cognition in subjects with subcortical vascular cognitive impairment
Synergistic effects of ischemia and β-amyloid burden on cognitive decline in patients with subcortical vascular mild cognitive impairment.
TLDR
Most patients with svMCI do not exhibit substantial amyloids burden, and CVD does not increase β-amyloid burden as measured by amyloid imaging, however, in patients with SvMCI, amyloidal burden and white matter hyperintensity act synergistically to impair visuospatial function.
Brain atrophy accelerates cognitive decline in cerebral small vessel disease
TLDR
Brain atrophy and WML are independently related to longitudinal cognitive decline in small vessel disease and seem to potentiate the effect of WML and lacunes on cognitive decline.
Incident lacunes influence cognitive decline
Background: In cerebral small vessel disease, the core MRI findings include white matter lesions (WML) and lacunar infarcts. While the clinical significance of WML is better understood, the
The aging brain and cognition: contribution of vascular injury and aβ to mild cognitive dysfunction.
TLDR
VBI was more influential than Aβ in contemporaneous cognitive function and remained predictive after including the possible influence of Aβ, and the impact of cerebrovascular disease should be considered with respect to defining the etiology of mild cognitive impairment.
Identification of pure subcortical vascular dementia using 11C-Pittsburgh compound B
TLDR
Patients with SVaD with and without abnormal amyloid imaging differed in clinical and MRI features, although there was considerable overlap.
White matter hyperintensities and cerebral amyloidosis: necessary and sufficient for clinical expression of Alzheimer disease?
TLDR
White matter hyperintensities contribute to the presentation of AD and, in the context of significant amyloid deposition, may provide a second hit necessary for the clinical manifestation of the disease.
Cerebral microbleeds are associated with worse cognitive function
Objective: Cerebral microbleeds are frequently found in the general elderly population and may reflect underlying vascular disease, but their role in cognitive function is unknown. Methods: We
