Clinical and Biological Correlates of White Matter Hyperintensities in Patients with #Behavioral-variant Frontotemporal #Dementia and #Alzheimer Disease

To test the hypothesis that white matter hyperintensities (WMH) in behavioral-variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) and Alzheimer disease (AD) are associated with disease variables such as disease severity, cortical atrophy and cognition, we conducted a cross-sectional brain MRI study with volumetric and voxel-wise analyses. Methods: 129 patients (64 bvFTD, 65 AD) and 66 controls underwent high-resolution brain MRI, clinical and neuropsychological examination. Genetic screening was conducted … Continue reading Clinical and Biological Correlates of White Matter Hyperintensities in Patients with #Behavioral-variant Frontotemporal #Dementia and #Alzheimer Disease

Risk‐adapted starting age of #breast cancer screening in women with a family history of #ovarian or other cancers: A nationwide cohort study

There is a lack of evidence‐based recommendations for the age at which women with a family history of cancers other than breast cancer should start breast cancer screening. METHODS Using Swedish family cancer data sets, the authors conducted a nationwide cohort study including 5,099,172 Swedish women born after 1931 (follow‐up, 1958‐2015). Accounting for calendar time, they calculated the relative risk of breast cancer for women … Continue reading Risk‐adapted starting age of #breast cancer screening in women with a family history of #ovarian or other cancers: A nationwide cohort study
