BACKGROUND Plasma concentrations of several amino acids may affect the availability of important neurotransmitter precursors in the brain. Abnormalities in the plasma amino acid profile have been reported in elderly persons with cognitive impairment, but no data exist for the prodromal phase of Alzheimer disease (AD), which is characterized by amnestic mild cognitive impairment (aMCI). OBJECTIVE The objective was to investigate whether the plasma amino acid profiles of elderly patients with… CONTINUE READING
