    Int J Geriatr Psychiatry 22:536-42. 2007
    ..Plasma Amyloid-beta peptide 42 (Abeta42) declines before and soon after the onset of AD, yet the relationship between plasma Abeta42 and depression is unclear...
  2. ncbi Improving dementia assessment by reducing sample heterogeneity

    Tufts University School of Medicine, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
    Int Psychogeriatr 19:383-9. 2007
    ..The statistical power of trials could be increased if heterogeneity of the sample were reduced by the administration of a risk factor inventory which could be used for subject selection or selection of drug responders...
