Conclusions: aCH increased risk of incident MCI and cognitive decline, and effects were significantly enhanced among individuals with genetic risk factors and CSF-based AD pathophysiological markers. Findings underscore the adverse impact of aCH medications on cognition and the need for deprescribing trials, particularly among individuals with elevated risk for AD. The Study in Context: First, do no harm? Common anticholinergic meds seen to increase dementia risk Study: 46.7 million Americans have Alzheimer’s Disease brain pathology today, so it’s urgent to prevent or at least delay progression to clinical di...

Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is a transitional state between the cognition of normal aging and mild dementia. People with MCI have an increased risk of developing Alzheimer ’s disease at a rate of 10% to 15% per year or prodrome of dementia.1 Cognitive impairment is a complex chronic condition, and its prevalence increases with age.2 The presence of coexisting chronic conditions such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and vision or hearing impairment increases healthcare utilization and contributes to a higher risk of serious health outcomes.

Jeiri Flores is normally a busy, upbeat 29-year-old. But amid the COVID-19 pandemic, her go-to thought has been dark. “If I get this,” she thinks, “I’m gonna die.” This is not an unfounded fear. Flores has cerebral palsy, uses a wheelchair and needs assistance with everyday tasks, including making food and getting dressed. Her disability means it’s tougher for her immune system to kick illnesses; she’s still recovering from a bout of pneumonia she had in January. So beating COVID-19 could easily mean a protracted battle and months in a hospital—a prospect that comes with a c...

Abstract Siglecs, sialic acid (SA)-binding immunoglobulin (Ig)-like lectins, belong to a family of Ig-like lectins. All Siglecs have at least two domains including an extracellular domain with variable (V) and constant (C)-set immunoglobulin (Ig) regions, and a transmembrane domain. Some of the Siglecs (Siglec-2-12, -17, -E, -F and -G) with three domains including immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif associated with Src homology 2 (SH2) tyrosine phosphatases (SHP1/2) usually deliver an inhibitory signal. Certain Siglecs (Siglec-14, -15, -16 and -H) containing no intracellular domain carry certain basic a...
