The 2009 Annual Evidence Update (AEU) , produced by NHS Evidence, gives an overview of the most important evidence published during the period March 2008 – September 2009.
This section of the AEU covers recent evidence on drug treatments for the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. Within this category have been included treatments for specific symptoms, such as:
- Cognitive function and behaviour.
- The use of supplements,.
- Herbal and traditional medicines.
- The potential risks and side effects of treatments.
Note: This section also includes the guidelines published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
This AEU has since been updated in 2010. (See Dementia: the Latest Evidence Newsletter RWHT Volume 1 Issue 3 October 2010).
