Abstract Neurodegenerative disease in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) was observed. We aim to clarify the risk of dementia in patients with COPD. The study used claims data from Taiwan's National Health Insurance Research Database. Subjects were those who received a discharge diagnosis of COPD between January 1, 2002 and December 31, 2011. Only the first hospitalization was enrolled, and the index date was the first day of admission. Patients younger than 40 years or… 
The association between adherence and dementia in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
TLDR
Medication adherence to bronchodilators may not modify the risk of dementia in patients with COPD, and this retrospective study enrolled COPD patients from 1 million beneficiaries randomly sampled from all beneficiaries in Taiwan.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is associated with risk of Chronic Kidney Disease: A Nationwide Case-Cohort Study
TLDR
COPD was found to be associated with kidney disease from the authors' follow-up and to detect CKD early, early diagnosis of CKD in patients with COPD and prompt initiation of monitoring and treatment are imperative.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease may complicate Alzheimer’s disease: a comorbidity problem
TLDR
This study shows a higher frequency of frontal deficits and behavioral disturbances in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and COPD than patients with AD-only, and MMSE has a low diagnostic accuracy to underline effective cognitive impairment in AD-COPD.
Increased risk of peripheral arterial occlusive diseases in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a nationwide study in Taiwan
TLDR
The incidence of peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) in COPD patients and the risk of PAOD associated with atrial fibrillation, hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, cerebrovascular accidents, and chronic liver disease are evaluated using a national database in Taiwan.
Influenza vaccination reduces dementia in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: a nationwide cohort study
TLDR
In conclusion, annual influenza vaccination can reduce the risk of dementia in patient with COPD in a dose-dependent manner.
Spectrum of cancer risk among Taiwanese with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
TLDR
COPD patients had increased risk for incident cancers, including lung cancer and several extrapulmonary cancers, and the risk was significantly higher for some specific types of cancer.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease as a Risk Factor for Cognitive Dysfunction: A Meta-Analysis of Current Studies.
TLDR
According to the results, COPD patients had a higher risk of cognitive dysfunction than controls and the exacerbation of COPD was strongly correlated with cognitive decline.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease and Risk of Dementia and Mortality in Lower to Middle Income Countries
TLDR
The link between COPD and dementia is currently somewhat different and weaker in LMIC than in developed countries, and may be because premature death in the populations studied mask the development of clinical dementia.

TLDR
This nationwide retrospective cohort study demonstrates that PD risk is significantly increased in patients with COPD compared with those of the general population.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma and the risk of mild cognitive impairment and dementia: a population based CAIDE study.
TLDR
In this population-based study, with more than 25 years of follow-up, midlife COPD and asthma were associated with an almost two-fold risk of MCI and dementia later in life.
Prevalence, severity and underdiagnosis of COPD in the primary care setting
TLDR
The prevalence and underdiagnosis of COPD in adult patients in this primary care setting made case finding worthwhile, and large numbers of newly detected patients were symptomatic and needed treatment.
A prospective study of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and the risk for mild cognitive impairment.
TLDR
A diagnosis of COPD is associated with an increased risk for MCI, particularly NA-MCI, and a dose-response relationship between COPD duration and risk forMCI is found.
Alzheimer disease and risk of stroke
TLDR
Clinical diagnosis of AD is associated with considerably increased risk of stroke development, and patients with AD had a higher risk of ischemic stroke and intracerebral hemorrhage than those without AD.
Diabetes and the Risk of Developing Parkinson’s Disease in Denmark
TLDR
It is found that a diagnosis of, or treatment received for, diabetes was significantly associated with an increased risk of developing Parkinson’s disease, especially younger-onset Parkinson's disease.
Diabetes mellitus and risk of Alzheimer disease and decline in cognitive function.
TLDR
Diabetes mellitus may be associated with an increased risk of developing AD and may affect cognitive systems differentially, and this study evaluated the association of diabetes mellitus with risk of AD and change in different cognitive systems.
Diabetes mellitus and risk of developing Alzheimer disease: results from the Framingham Study.
TLDR
Diabetes mellitus did not increase the risk of incident AD in the Framingham cohort overall; however, DM may be a risk factor forAD in the absence of other known major AD risk factors.
Cognitive function in COPD
TLDR
There may be a pattern of cognitive dysfunction specific to COPD, and cognitive function is only mildly impaired in patients without hypoxaemia, and there is limited evidence for a significant effect of treatment on cognitive function.
Metabolic Syndrome, Inflammation, and Nonamnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment in Older Persons: A Population-based Study
TLDR
The combined presence of MetS and high levels of inflammation is associated with na-MCI in this elderly cohort, and suggests etiologic differences in MCI subtypes.
