An Evidence-based Caregiver Intervention: Translation from Research to Practice
Mary Mittelman, DrPH, research professor in the Department of Psychiatry, NYU Langone Medical Center

EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE UNTIL JULY 19, 2011 AT 10:30am CEST (5:30am ET/USA)

The NYU Caregiver Intervention (NYUCI) is a multi-component individualized intervention for spouse caregivers of people with Alzheimer's disease. The underlying premise of the intervention is that improving social support can have significant positive impact on the well-being of the caregiver. Intervention includes individual counseling for the primary caregiver and family counseling for the spouse and other family members within a fixed period of time and ongoing support as requested for the entire course of the illness. Results suggest a short course of intensive counseling and readily available supportive maintenance that includes not only the spouse caregiver, but also other family members, can have long-lasting effects on the well-being of spouse caregivers. The structure of the NYUCI permits flexibility of content, making it an ideal intervention for diverse cultures.


Hyperglycemia increases amyloid accumulation and exacerbates cerebrovascular pathology in Alzheimer's disease model animals.
Ayodeji A. Asuni, PhD, research professor in the Department of Neurology, NYU School of Medicine

EMBARGOED FOR RELEASE UNTIL TUESDAY, JULY 19, 2011 AT 12:30pm CEST(6:30amET/USA)

Hyperglycemia is a metabolic abnormality defining diabetes. Misfolding and accumulation of abnormally conformed amyloid-β and associated neurodegenerative cascades underpins Alzheimer's disease (AD) pathogenesis. Epidemiological studies have repeatedly demonstrated increased coincidence of AD pathology in diabetes patients, and the clinical course of AD is often hastened in subjects with diabetes. Despite these associations, the association is
