Using a randomized controlled trial design, we will examine the effects of music engagement through choir training on the hearing, communication, and psychosocial well-being of older adults, particularly those at heightened risk of developing dementia.
This is an investigator-initiated clinical (IIT)study.The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of XTR006 PET qualitative reading and quantitative analysis in detecting mild cognitive impairment（MCI）due to AD and mild to moderate AD based on clinical diagnosis, and to establish XTR006 PET imaging parameters and qualitative reading and quantitative analysis methods.
XTR006 is a 18F-labeled positron emission tomography （PET）tracer for imaging tau protein in the brain. This phase I study investigated the safety, biodistribution, radiation dosimetry and Pharmacokinetics of XTR006 in 10 healthy elderly Chinese volunteers.
To explore the diagnostic value of [18F]CSF-23 brain imaging for CSF1R expression in Alzheimer's disease. PET imaging with this PET tracer was used to assess the role and expression of CSF1R in AD and to evaluate the level and safety of abnormal present imaging.
Previous clinical studies revealed that the newly developed biophoton therapy has been safe and effective in treating patients with Alzheimer's disease, dementia, stroke, traumatic brain injury, or Parkinson's disease. The current study is to confirm the previous clinical observation by conducting as a randomized, triple-blinded, placebo-controlled prospective intervention clinical research. About 80 patients with brain disorder (Alzheimer's disease, dementia, stroke, traumatic brain injury, Parkinson's disease) will participate in the intervention clinical study at the Tesla MedBed Center located in Butler, PA.
The goal of this study is to test the effect of CS-ADL is on people living with early to middle stage dementia. The main questions it aims to answer are: - What is the effect of CS-ADL on the ability of people with early to middle stage dementia to carry out their everyday activities? - What is the effect of CS-ADL on the memory, mood, communication, and quality of life of people living with early to middle stage dementia? Participants will take part in a group program that lasts 7 weeks, with one session per week, lasting two hours. Participants will take part in rewarding and stimulating activities, for example discussion, reminiscence, music, and practical activities such as baking, cooking, gardening. Participants will be asked to complete a variety of questionnaires before and after taking part in the group. Researchers will compare a group receiving CS-ADL to a group receiving their usual care, to explore whether CS-ADL works well in comparison to typical treatment provided by the health services.
[18F]Florbetazine ([18F]92) is a molecularly targeted imaging agent for Aβ protein with a novel diaryl-azine scaffold. It has shown specific binding affinity to Aβ aggregates in postmortem human AD brains and excellent brain pharmacokinetic properties with little non-specific retention in white matter in animal studies and a limited number of patients with Alzheimer's Disease (AD). The purpose of the current study is to examine the binding properties of [18F]Florbetazine in human subjects and to compare the cortical and white matter binding with [11C]PiB or [18F]Florbetapir in the same subjects. Imaging of the brain will be completed in healthy adult normal control participants and participants with cognitive impairment (including probable AD and dementia due to other conditions) to characterize [18F]Florbetazine uptake in the brain and its binding properties. [11C]PIB or [18F]Florbetapir PET imaging along with MRI will be completed in the same participants and the data will be compared with 18F-[18F]Florbetazine.
This study will evaluate a new form of non-invasive deep brain therapy for individuals with Alzheimer's disease. Low-intensity transcranial focused ultrasound stimulation will first be delivered using a range of stimulation parameters during psychophysical and physiological monitoring. A well-tolerated stimulation protocol will be selected for subsequent testing in a blinded randomized sham-controlled cross-over trial. The trial will evaluate brain target engagement using magnetic resonance imaging, PET imaging, and numerical scales of cognitive performance.
The intervention being tested, CONFIDENCE-AI is a refined version of the original CONFIDENCE intervention made to reduce psychological financial strain and improve management of out-of-pocket care costs while increasing caregiver resourcefulness skills. Participants will be asked to participate in a 4-week intervention that includes participation in four, synchronous group-based Zoom sessions as well as between-session activities to apply learning. Participants will also receive tailored text message notifications from the NeuViCare AI-powered app via text and will be able to submit questions to the app to receive financial well-being information related to caregiving.
This study involves a brain positron emission tomography (PET) scan with a new, investigational radioactive tracer called [11C]-CS1P1 to identify inflammation in the brain. The primary objective of this IND study is to further evaluate the [11C]-CS1P1 for PET imaging of S1P1 expression in healthy older adults and in adults with Alzheimer's disease and Related Dementia (ADRD). Investigators will complete imaging of the brain and neck in older adults with normal cognition and those with clinically diagnosed cognitive impairment from ADRD to characterize [11C]-CS1P1 uptake in the brain. Investigators will compare the normal cognition participants to patients with ADRD to collect preliminary data that will subsequently test the hypothesis that [11C]-CS1P1 uptake is elevated in patients with ADRD.
