Vascular dementia in a population-based autopsy study.
TLDR
In this population-based autopsy study, the presence of vascular pathological characteristics in the absence of major AD pathological findings was common and Pure VaD without overt clinical strokes remains a challenge for antemortem diagnosis.
Prevalence of dementia subtypes in a developing country: a clinicopathological study
TLDR
The relatively high frequencies of vascular dementia and small-vessel disease in the dementia sub-group constitute relevant findings for public health initiatives because control of vascular risk factors could decrease the prevalence of dementia in developing countries.
Vascular pathologies and cognition in a population-based cohort of elderly people
Mixed brain pathologies account for most dementia cases in community-dwelling older persons
TLDR
The majority of community-dwelling older persons have brain pathology, and those with dementia most often have multiple brain pathologies, which greatly increases the odds of dementia.
Age, neuropathology, and dementia.
TLDR
The association between the pathological features of Alzheimer's disease and dementia is stronger in younger old persons than in older old persons, and age must be taken into account when assessing the likely effect of interventions against dementia on the population.
Population-based neuropathological studies of dementia: design, methods and areas of investigation – a systematic review
TLDR
Clinicopathological studies based on true population samples can provide unique insights in dementia and together they represent a powerful source to translate findings from laboratory to populations.
Epidemiological neuropathology: the MRC Cognitive Function and Aging Study experience.
TLDR
The study-design major findings from the neuropathological component of the Medical Research Council Cognitive Function and Aging Study (MRC CFAS) reveal a high prevalence of mixed Alzheimer and vascular pathology, a significant population who die with dementia but with a more limited pathological burden than is traditionally associated with dementia, and a group who died with a significant pathological burden yet remained cognitively intact until death.
Low Prevalence of Mixed Dementia in a Cohort of 2,000 Elderly Patients in a Memory Clinic Setting.
TLDR
A low prevalence of mixed dementia was found in late-onset clinically diagnosed Alzheimer's disease in a single-center memory clinic population and severe WML in AD was largely explained by age rather than effect of disease.
Neuropathological diagnoses and clinical correlates in older adults in Brazil: A cross-sectional study
TLDR
NFT deposition, vascular lesions, and high NPC score were associated with cognitive impairment in a unique Brazilian sample with low education, and the results confirm the high prevalence of neuropathological diagnosis in older adults and the mismatch between clinical and neuro Pathological diagnoses.
Course and Causes of Suspected Dementia in Young Adults: A Longitudinal Study
TLDR
The authors performed a prospective, unbiased analysis of a cohort of young patients assessed consecutively with the question of dementia, finding the frequencies of frontotemporal lobar degeneration and psychiatric disease were higher than Alzheimer’s disease, unlike in older populations.

A population-based study of dementia in 85-year-olds.
TLDR
Dementia was present in nearly a third of unselected 85-year-olds in Sweden, and almost half these subjects appeared to have vascular dementia, which may currently be more amenable to prevention or treatment than Alzheimer's disease.
An autopsy-verified study of the effect of education on degenerative dementia.
TLDR
It can be concluded that higher education does not modify the course of Alzheimer's disease, but lower education relates to the occurrence of cerebral infarcts, which is similar to that of the age-adjusted general Ontario population.
Neuropathological Findings in the Very Old: Results from the First 101 Brains of a Population‐based Longitudinal Study of Dementing Disorders
TLDR
It seems that white matter (ischemic) pallor an amyloid angiopathy, as well as neuritic plaques, neurofibrillary tangles and Lewy body formation are all lesions that increase the likelihood of dementia.
Diagnosing dementia: do we get it right?
TLDR
The value of neuropathological studies in the precise diagnosis of dementia is confirmed, as neither cranial computed tomography nor the Hachinski score helped to distinguish between multi-infarct dementia and Alzheimer's disease in this age group.
Brain infarction and the clinical expression of Alzheimer disease. The Nun Study.
TLDR
Findings suggest that cerebrovascular disease may play an important role in determining the presence and severity of the clinical symptoms of AD.
Consensus guidelines for the clinical and pathologic diagnosis of dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB)
TLDR
This work identified progressive disabling mental impairment progressing to dementia as the central feature of DLB, and identified optimal staining methods for each of these and devised a protocol for the evaluation of cortical LB frequency based on a brain sampling procedure consistent with CERAD.
The Consortium to Establish a Registry for Alzheimer's Disease (CERAD)
The Neuropathology Task Force of the Consortium to Establish a Registry for Alzheimer's Disease (CERAD) has developed a practical and standardized neuropathology protocol for the postmortem
Neuropathological assessment of the lesions of significance in vascular dementia
TLDR
Microvascular disease, not macroscopic infarction, was the chief substrate of vascular dementia in this series of cases.
Education and Risk for Alzheimer's Disease: Sex Makes a Difference EURODEM Pooled Analyses
TLDR
Not finding an association of education with Alzheimer's disease for women only raises the possibility that unmeasured confounding explains the previously reported increased risk for Alzheimer’s disease for persons with low levels of education.
Apolipoprotein E, dementia, and cortical deposition of beta-amyloid protein.
TLDR
Even in elderly subjects without dementia, the apolipoprotein E genotype is related to the degree of deposition of beta-amyloid protein in the cerebral cortex.
