Title: Use of angiotensin receptor blockers and risk of dementia
 
Abstract:
 
Time to incident Alzheimer’s disease or dementia in three cohorts over a
four year period was analyzed using Cox“s proportional hazard models. The
three cohorts were patients who used angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB),
lisinopril, or other cardiovascular drugs. The models were adjusted for age,
diabetes, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. Disease progression was also
investigated using the time to admission to a nursing home or death among
participants with pre-existing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. The
analyses showed significant advantages for the ARB cohort over the other two
cohorts.
