Risk factors for dementia in the epidemiological study of Munguialde County (Basque Country-Spain)
The aim of this study was to identify the risk factors for dementia, Alzheimer's disease (AD) and vascular dementia (VD) in elderly people in Munguialde County (Spain).
Risk factors of cognitive decline in residential care in Hungary
An ongoing prospective multicentre study was initiated to determine the impact of some well‐known social and biological dementia risk factors and the prevalences and conversion rates of dementia and depression syndromes.
Incidence and etiology of dementia in a large elderly Italian population
In this population-based cohort, incidence of dementia increased with age, and Alzheimer disease was the most frequent type of dementia, and poor education was associated with a higher risk of AD.
Incidence of Dementia, Alzheimer Disease, and Vascular Dementia in a Japanese Population: Radiation Effects Research Foundation Adult Health Study
AD was the predominant type of dementia in this recent incidence study conducted in Japan, suggesting a reduction in vascular dementia (VaD) and an increase in AD.

The knowledge of the risk factors has provided opportunities for the primary and secondary prevention of vascular dementia, and indicates promising avenues for research.
Validation of a short cognitive tool for the screening of dementia in elderly people with low educational level
To validate the ‘Prueba Cognitiva de Leganés’ (PCL) as a screening tool for cognitive impairment in elderly people with little formal education.
Vascular dementia: changing the paradigm
Vascular dementia is an important and often overlooked form of dementia in the elderly and cholinergic treatment may improve prognosis, and primary prevention of vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease appears to depend on early identification and appropriate control of vascular risk factors.


Cognitive Impairment Without Dementia in Older People: Prevalence, Vascular Risk Factors, Impact on Disability. The Italian Longitudinal Study on Aging
OBJECTIVES: To investigate prevalence of “cognitive impairment, no dementia” (CIND) in the Italian older population, evaluating the association with cardiovascular disease and the impact on
Education and other socioeconomic determinants of dementia and Alzheimer's disease
Evidence regarding the status of education and other indicators of socioeconomic status as risk factors for poor cognitive performance, dementia, and Alzheimer's disease is reviewed.
Rethinking Vascular Dementia (Part 1 of 2)
Vascular dementia may be regarded as a syndrome of cognitive impairment resulting from vascular diseases, especially isc cerebral palsy.
Incidence of dementia in the Lundby Study.
The incidences of senile dementia of Alzheimer type (SDAT) and multi-infarction dementia (MID) were studied in a total Swedish population, the Lundby project, to estimate the cumulative risk up to a certain age.
The effect of education on the incidence of dementia and Alzheimer's disease in the Framingham Study
Low educational attainment was associated with increased risk of non-AD dementia, perhaps because of deleterious smoking habits and other risk factors for stroke in the least-educated individuals.
Incidence of very mild to severe dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in Denmark
Application of an individualized cutoff for the screening instrument resulted in detection of a substantial number of cases with very mild dementia, which subsequently resulted in higher incidence rates than those reported in most other studies.
Incidence of dementia and probable Alzheimer's disease in a general population
In a general population sample, incidence of dementia and of probable AD did not level off with age and was not different in men and women.
Incidence of dementia and Alzheimer's disease in elderly community residents of south-western France.
Incidence rates of dementia, Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia in a community population of South-Western France did not level off with age and were not different between genders.
Prevalence of Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia: association with education. The Rotterdam study
In this study an inverse dose-response relation was found between education and dementia—in particular, Alzheimer's disease, which was more often diagnosed in less educated people.
Incidence of dementia and major subtypes in Europe: A collaborative study of population-based cohorts. Neurologic Diseases in the Elderly Research Group.
It is confirmed that AD is the most frequent dementing disorder in all ages, and that there is a higher incidence of dementia, specifically AD, in women than men among the very old, and there may be regional differences in dementia incidence.
