Sleep disturbances and physical inactiveness are common in people with dementia living in residential aged care facilities (RACFs). Up to 70% of individuals with dementia are affected by disturbed sleep [1] and people with dementia living in residential aged care facilities (RACFs) are reported to spend around 85% of their daytime physically inactive [2]. Disturbed sleep and decreased physical function can have significant consequences, such as greater risks of injuries [3] and increased caregiver burden [4].

ConclusionThis 2-year period study, including a wide cohort of community demented patients, shows that dementia is diagnosed late and that prevalence of BPSD prescriptions is high and not impacted by adherence to anti-dementia drugs. The rate of prescription of potentially harmful antipsychotics and antidepressants appears to be high though whether the concomitantly observed limited prescription of analgesics might be a contributing factor needs to be further investigated. Our data support the development of strategies to improve the management of BPSD.

This study is the first to provide a direct link between this inflammation and plaque development - by way of IFITM3. Scientists know that the production of IFITM3 starts in response to activation of the immune system by invading viruses and bacteria. These observations, combined with the new findings that IFITM3 directly contributes to plaque formation, suggest that viral and bacterial infections could increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease development. Indeed, researchers found that the level of IFITM3 in human brain samples correlated with levels of certain viral infections as well as with gamma-secretase activ...
