Morgan was born in the north of England in Drawing and painting since early childhood, her love of art was encouraged by a young art mistress at the age of 11 who urged her on to study the arts.
With this information, if I were the treating physician, I would order antibiotics and admit the patient for an inpatient workup. The identification of phenotypes that can be reliably and effectively determined in large samples of subjects is a critical challenge for genetic studies of VCI Leblanc et al. Most of his life to date has been spent alone. The Third international study of infarct survival collaborative group..

Morgan attended Liverpool University where she obtained an N. Morgan was a teacher for twenty years and Head of Special Needs. Morgan has lived in a variety of places including L Morgan was born in the north of England in To confirm the diagnosis, neurologists met with the candidates and their family members at home or in official day care centers. Assessment of these subjects involved a careful study of the medical history, a physical examination, a drug inventory, a neurological examination, and a comprehensive cognitive evaluation using the Psychogeriatric Assessment Scale PAS [ 5 ] and the Logical Memory Test of the Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised WMS-R [ 6 ].
Among the subjects who met the criteria for MCI, subjects having a score 1. We examined all the subjects directly in phase 2 of the study. In order to identify subjects with dementia out of the non-responder pool, we used data from town medical records where the diagnosis of dementia was performed by board-certificated neurologists K. Figure 1 shows the general design of the door-to-door two-phase prevalence survey. By the prevalence date of June 1, , 24 subjects 2.
Of the remaining subjects, Compared to phase 1 non-responders, responders were younger mean The number of subjects involved at each step is shown. In total, subjects were classified as having cognitive impairment in phase 1 of the study. In phase 2 of the study, 98 subjects were diagnosed with amnestic MCI, subjects with non-amnestic MCI, and 82 subjects with dementia. Of the subjects who did not receive the phase 1 test, 39 subjects were diagnosed as having dementia according to data from their town medical records in our follow-up study, and 27 subjects were diagnosed as having dementia according to the Long-term Care Insurance System.
The severity of dementia according to FAST is shown in figure 2.
Seventy-five individuals More than half of the subjects with AD were at a mild stage; however, more than half of the subjects with VaD were at a moderate or severe stage. Forty-five subjects with dementia were instituted in nursing homes in the town, while 16 subjects with dementia were instituted in nursing homes or hospitalized outside the town.
Table 1 shows the number and prevalence of each dementia subtype. Overall, subjects 52 men and 96 women fulfilled the diagnostic criteria for dementia, yielding a crude prevalence for all dementia types of The mean age was The age-specific prevalence of dementia displayed an exponential increase with advancing age for women. However, for men, the prevalence was highest between 85 and 89 years. The prevalence was higher in men than in women aged less than 90 years. The age-adjusted prevalence for dementia by the direct method in those aged 65 years and older compared with the population structure of Japan in was estimated to be Of the demented subjects, Five 3.
The overall crude prevalence was The prevalence of AD was three times higher in women than in men, while that of VaD was almost three times higher in men than in women. Crude prevalences were 0. Table 2 shows the number and prevalence of MCI cases.
In total, subjects 88 men and women fulfilled the diagnostic criteria for MCI, yielding a prevalence of Crude prevalences were The mean age of the subjects with amnestic MCI was The mean age of the subjects with non-amnestic MCI was Whereas there was no significant difference in the mean age of the subjects with amnestic MCI between men and women, the mean age of the subjects with non-amnestic MCI was lower for men than women.
We conducted a population-based study on dementia and MCI in Ama-cho, a rural island town in western Japan. Ama-cho has evidently a stable population in terms of elderly population due to very low levels of migration. Three public health nurses working as permanent care providers had kept detailed information about the physical and mental health of the entire town for about 30 years. Almost all of the subjects with dementia lived in their own home or were instituted in a nursing home within the town.
Thus, these features proved suitable for investigations into the prevalence of dementia. We previously reported the crude prevalence of dementia to be In that study, screening for dementia depended upon information collected by public health nurses in the town. The screening included an interview with both subjects and their families and surveyed cognitive changes, psychiatric symptoms, personality changes, problem behaviors, activities of daily living, and psychological and medical symptoms.
Recorded subjects with dementia were limited to people who were actually living in the town, meaning that people with dementia who were institutionalized in nursing homes outside the town or lived with their families outside the town were excluded. In comparison, in the present study, the screening of subjects displaying cognitive impairment based on MMSE and CDR by clinical psychologists in a phase 1 study allowed us to detect individuals with mild dementia who had not been recognized by public nurses or doctors in the town.
This might account for the greater prevalence of dementia reported in this study compared to the values presented in our previous study. Further, we examined the state of cognitive function in survey non-responders according to data from their town medical card or the Long-term Care Insurance System of Japan.
We could also extensively examine subjects suffering from various stages of cognitive impairment ranging from mild to severe. This study suggests that AD is the most common and VaD is the second most common subtype of dementia in elderly individuals. We also examined the prevalence of dementia subtypes other than AD and VaD. The proportion of patients with DLB among patients with any type of dementia was 5. These values are consistent with previous estimates reported in systematic reviews [ 19 , 20 ].
We did not discover any patients with FTLD in this study, although a larger number of subjects may be needed to examine the exact prevalence of FTLD in the elderly via community-based studies. Previous reports have demonstrated the prevalence of MCI to be 4. Our estimate of the crude prevalence of MCI The non-amnestic type of MCI was included in the construct of MCI in the current study but not in previous studies, and this might account for the greater estimated prevalence of MCI. However, the crude prevalence of amnestic MCI Recently, Sasaki et al.
In comparison, the prevalence of MCI has also been reported in areas outside of Japan. A previous review showed that the prevalence of MCI in the general elderly population older than 65 years was between 3.
The prevalence of MCI among Koreans aged 65 years or older was estimated to be A systematic analysis of 22 studies in China described a pooled prevalence of MCI in elderly populations of One of the challenges of studying the prevalence of MCI in population-based studies is that the reported prevalence of MCI varies between reports due to different diagnostic criteria as well as disparate assessment procedures.
Apart from neurodegeneration, numerous factors including vascular risk factors, education, psychiatric status, genetic background, use of anticholinergic drugs, and hormonal changes can affect cognitive function in elderly populations [ 28 ]. It will be important to incorporate these new criteria for MCI in future population-based studies. There are some limitations regarding our measurements of MCI prevalence. First, we did not conduct cognitive tests in subjects who did not answer the survey.
