Familial Study
The Dementia Research Centre, based at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, is one of the UK's leading centres for clinical research into dementia, and the hospital is the lead centre for trialling new drugs to slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease (which causes the majority of dementias). Over 4,000 patients, with their carers, have already participated in studies and the Dementia Research Centre has made some breakthrough progress - including collaborative work leading to identifying the first Alzheimer's disease gene; identifying pre-symptomatic cognitive and imaging changes in Alzheimer's; and pioneering MR imaging techniques to improve diagnosis and track progression of Alzheimer's disease. **STOP PRESS** **STOP PRESS** **STOP PRESS** **STOP PRESS** DEDICATED DEMENTIA RESEARCH CENTRE

Alzheimer’s disease
Published by BUPA's Health Information Team
December, 2002 Dementia is a broad term for the deterioration of brain function which results in loss of memory, reduced language skills and behavioural and emotional problems. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia – it accounts for more than half the estimated 500,000 to 700,000 cases in the UK. Alzheimer’s disease is rare before the age of 60 but the risk of developing it increases with age. Around a quarter of people over 80 have the disease.
Brain function
When the brain is functioning normally, it exchanges signals from other parts of the body, and other parts of the brain, across the gaps (synapses) between nerve cells. These signals – in the form of countless electrical impulses – are essential for brain activity such as language and problem solving. They are also involved in controlling motor functions, such as instructing muscles when and how to work. Alzheimer’s disease is the result of the destruction of nerve cells (neurons) in the brain. These nerve cells cannot be replaced, so a person with Alzheimer’s disease gets progressively worse as more cells are destroyed.

Contrary to suggestions from previous research, this study of over 34,000 subjects found no effect of smoking on senility or Alzheimer's. The previous suggestions that it did came from flawed studies, say the authors.

Smoking does not protect against dementia or Alzheimer's disease
Smoking and dementia in male British doctors: prospective study Smoking does not protect against dementia or Alzheimer's disease, shows a study in this week's BMJ, contradicting the implications of some previous research. Doll, Peto, and colleagues, from the Clinical Trial Service Unit and Epidemiological Studies Unit, Radcliffe Infirmary Oxford, report on observations of over 34,000 male UK doctors whose smoking habits have been reviewed every six to 12 years since 1951, to determine the impact on their health. They also reviewed the published data on the associations between smoking and Alzheimer's disease. Over 24,000 of the doctors had died by the end of 1998. Dementia was mentioned on the death certificates of 483. Among 473 whose smoking habits were recorded at least 10 years before their death, when they would not have been influenced by the start of the disease, the prevalence of both Alzheimer's disease (the predominant cause) and of other dementias was similar in both smokers and non-smokers. If anything, persistent smoking may increase rather than decrease the age specific onset rate of dementia, conclude the authors. The previous suggestions that smoking might be protective, say the authors, came from studies that were flawed because they were too small, or had relied on information about smoking habits from people other than the sufferers themselves.

What is dementia The term 'dementia' is used to describe the symptoms that occur when the brain is affected by specific diseases and conditions, including Alzheimer's disease, stroke and many other rarer conditions. Symptoms of dementia include loss of memory, confusion and problems with speech and understanding.
Different areas of the brain are responsible for different skills and abilities. The changes in behaviour, memory and thought in people with Alzheimer's disease may be a direct result of the way the disease has affected their brain.
