Parkinson's disease with dementia

  • BehaveNet® Clinical Capsule™: DSM-IV: 294.9 Dementia Due to HIV Disease - Dementia resulting directly from this transmissible viral disease can occur at any age. Individuals with AIDS may also be prone to dementia from a variety of associated causes.

  • Brain briefings: HIV's brain assault - HIV is the particularly lethal and nasty virus that causes AIDS. Left untamed, it can harm the brain and impair mental function, a condition called HIV-associated dementia.

  • Elevated CSF glutamate in HIV dementia supports role for anti-glutamate agents - WESTPORT, CT (Reuters Health) - Glutamate concentrations in cerebrospinal fluid are markedly elevated in patients with AIDS dementia complex, researchers from Italy report in the August 28th issue of Neurology. The study confirms prior research they conducted with a smaller number of patients.

  • HIV-Associated Dementia - Incidence rates continue to show decline, especially following the introduction of HAART. Moore et al demonstrate a dramatic drop from 8% p.a. during 1993-5, to 3% during 1996-1997 [Abstract 22374].

  • HIV dementia in AIDS - HIV/AIDS is unusual in that it combines both immunological, neurological and psychiatric disorders and as a consequence patients may develop a variety of disabilities ranging from wasting disorders, severe pain, neurological dysfunction such as paralysis or cognitive impairment and psychological symptoms. These combinations of problems may result in considerable problems for both patients and carers.
