When considering only those patients who were symptomatic at baseline, combination therapy also significantly outperformed ChEI
alone in total NPI and on the subscores for agitation /aggression, irritability/lability, and appetite--all by about 0.5 points.
Results from studies of pharmacologic management of MCI vary widely, but recent reviews have found no convincing evidence that either ChEIs
or NMDA receptor blockers have an effect on progression from MCI to dementia.
We evaluated whether the use of Gb is associated with additional cognitive and functional benefit in AD patients already in treatment with cholinesterase inhibitors (ChEIs
(19), (20) Based on these findings, researchers thought that cortical AChE inhibition may be suboptimal with donepezil, 10 mg/d, and that higher doses of ChEI
may be required in patients with more advanced AD--and therefore more cholinergic loss--for adequate cholinesterase inhibition.
(23) The lines "Goria vostorgom umilennym / Ch'ia kist', chei
plamennyi rezets / Predast potomkam izumlennym / Ee nebesnye cherty?" are strikingly similar to the first four hnes of "Nedokonchennaia kartina" (The Unfinished Painting), written in 1819, but published in 1828, the same year Pushkin was working on "Kto znaet krai ..." The first four lines read: "Ch'ia mysl' vostorgom ugadala, / Postigla tainu krasoty?

The study from Rhode Island Hospital demonstrated that cholinesterase inhibitors (ChEI
) improved some computerized tests of executive function and visual attention, including a simulated driving task in patients.
Donezpezil is a "reversible and noncompetitive ChEI
, and a far more selective inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase than of butyrylcholinesterase" (Bassil & Grossberg, 2009, p.
