BACKGROUND Current and future incidence and prevalence estimates of dementia are essential for public health planning. OBJECTIVE The objective was to establish prediction model of incidence and estimate the prevalence of dementia in the Chinese and worldwide population from 2020 to 2050. METHODS A model-based method was used to project the dementia prevalence from 2020 to 2050 in China, which required incidence, the mortality rate for individual without dementia, and the relative risk of… 
Crosstalk Between Gut Microflora and Vitamin D Receptor SNPs Are Associated with the Risk of Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment in a Chinese Elderly Population.
Results implicated that the crosstalk between gut microflora and vitamin D receptor variants are associated with the risk of amnestic mild cognitive impairment in Chinese elderly population.
Novel Design of Neuropeptide-Based Drugs with β-Sheet Breaking Potential in Amyloid-Beta Cascade: Molecular and Structural Deciphers
Results suggest that under the action of protease, the peptide cleavage does not occur at all and showed that NA-16KLVF19 may improve the β-sheet breaker mechanism, and thus the entanglement process of amyloid-beta peptides can be more effective.
Rhinacanthin-C but Not -D Extracted from Rhinacanthus nasutus (L.) Kurz Offers Neuroprotection via ERK, CHOP, and LC3B Pathways
It is shown that Rhinacanthin-C and 2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone have neuroprotective effects against glutamate-induced apoptosis in HT-22 cells, and its inhibition is not necessary for cryoprotection.
Evaluation of the Reliability and Validity of the Alzheimer’s Disease-Related Quality of Life Instrument among Older Adults with Cognitive Impairment in Mainland China
The ADRQL had acceptable reliability and validity, which can be used to assess overall quality of life for this population of older adults with cognitive impairment in mainland China.


Alzheimer disease in the United States (2010–2050) estimated using the 2010 census
The number of people in the United States with AD dementia will increase dramatically in the next 40 years unless preventive measures are developed.
Trends in dementia prevalence, incidence, and survival rate in a Japanese community
The increased incidence and improved survival rate of AD could have resulted in the steep increase in AD prevalence in the Japanese elderly.
A Comparison of the Prevalence of Dementia in the United States in 2000 and 2012
The prevalence of dementia in the United States declined significantly between 2000 and 2012, and an increase in educational attainment was associated with some of the decline in dementia prevalence, but the full set of social, behavioral, and medical factors contributing to the decline is still uncertain.
Dementia in China: epidemiology, clinical management, and research advances
Temporal trend in dementia incidence since 2002 and projections for prevalence in England and Wales to 2040: modelling study
The probabilistic Markov model IMPACT-BAM (IMPACT-Better Ageing Model) was developed and enables prediction of dementia prevalence while accounting for the growing pool of susceptible people as a result of increased life expectancy and the competing effects due to changes in mortality, and incidence of cardiovascular disease.
[Study on the incidence and risk factors of dementia in elderly residents from communities in Beijing].
The incidence of dementia in the elderly in Beijing was higher than in other areas of China, and old age and illiterate appeared to be the risk factors for dementia.
The changing prevalence and incidence of dementia over time — current evidence
This narrative Review synthesizes the findings from 14 studies that investigated trends in dementia prevalence and incidence from Sweden, Spain, the UK, the Netherlands, France, the USA, Japan and Nigeria, and indicates stable or declining prevalence or incidence of dementia.
Incident Dementia in a Defined Older Chinese Population
The findings of high incidence of dementia and increased risk among people having low education levels but high income suggest a more potential epidemic and burden of dementia populations in China.
Prevalence of dementia in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan: an updated systematic review and meta-analysis
Geographical variation in dementia prevalence is confirmed in this update, whereas evidence on increasing trends is still insufficient, andDiffering societal development across areas provides an opportunity to investigate risk factors at the population level operating across diverse life course experiences.
