1. Rondeau V, et al. (2009). Aluminum Maladie d'Alzheimer (ALMA+) | Personnes Agees Quid Study (PAQUID) We found that the cognitive decline and the risk of dementia were higher for high consumption of Aluminum from drinking water. age Aluminum | Silicon Dioxide Study subjects France water, drinking, bottled | water, tap Aluminum | Silicon Dioxide Details Alzheimer Disease | cognition
2. Solfrizzi V, et al. (2013). Italian Longitudinal Study on Aging (ILSA) Using a large, population-based cohort, we investigated whether angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors collectively as a 'class' and as sub-groups according to their chemical structures and drug potencies, compared with other antihypertensive agents and beyond the natural course in time of the hypertension, reduced the incidence of mild cognitive impairment in cognitively normal individuals. Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors | Enalapril | Lisinopril Subjects with disease:Hypertension Italy Details Cognitive Dysfunction
3. Min JY, et al. (2016). National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) We observed a significant association between blood cadmium levels and Alzheimer disease mortality among older adults in the US. age Cadmium Controls for disease:Diabetes Mellitus | Subjects with disease:Diabetes Mellitus | Controls for disease:Hypertension | Subjects with disease:Hypertension | Study subjects United States blood Cadmium Details Alzheimer Disease
4. Szabo ST, et al. (2016). We examined the relationship between metal levels in brain tissue and ventricular fluid from postmortem samples of Alzheimer disease cases and controls; we confirmed previous work suggesting an increase in iron in Alzheimer brain tissue and identified arsenic as a metal of interest for further evaluation. Metals Controls for disease:Alzheimer Disease | Subjects with disease:Alzheimer Disease United States frontal lobe | ventricular fluid Arsenic | Cadmium | Chromium | Copper | Iron | Lead | Manganese | Mercury | Nickel | Tin | Vanadium | Zinc Details Alzheimer Disease
5. Yokoo EM, et al. (2003). This study suggests that adults exposed to methylmercury may be at risk for deficits in neurocognitive function. Methylmercury Compounds Study subjects Brazil hair Methylmercury Compounds Details Cognition Disorders | Mercury Poisoning, Nervous System | cognition
6. Ruckart PZ, et al. (2004). Our findings suggest that methyl parathion might be associated with subtle changes to short-term memory and attention and contribute to problems with motor skills and some behaviors, but the results of the study are not conclusive. Methyl Parathion Children United States Details Cognition Disorders | Motor Skills Disorders | behavior | memory
7. Oudin A, et al. (2016). Betula Study We observed associations between dementia incidence and local traffic pollution that remained after adjusting for known risk factors. Nitrogen Oxides Study subjects Sweden Nitrogen Oxides Details Alzheimer Disease | Dementia, Vascular
8. Engel SM, et al. (2011). Mount Sinai Children's Environmental Health Study Our findings suggest that prenatal exposure to organophosphates is negatively associated with cognitive development, particularly perceptual reasoning, with evidence of effects beginning at 12 months and continuing through early childhood, and that PON1 may be an important genetic susceptibility factor for these deleterious effects. genetics | race Organophosphates | Pesticides Children | Subjects with gene influence:PON1 | Pregnant females United States urine Organophosphates Details Cognition Disorders | Prenatal Exposure Delayed Effects
9. Kioumourtzoglou MA, et al. (2016). We conducted a large-scale, multi-city study to estimate the impact of long-term particulate matter <=2.5 microns city-wide exposure on city-wide hospital admissions for neurological outcomes, using data from Medicare enrollees in the northeastern United States. Particulate Matter Study subjects United States air Particulate Matter Details Alzheimer Disease | Dementia | Parkinson Disease
10. Gunier RB, et al. (2016). Center for the Health Assessment of Mothers and Children of Salinas (CHAMACOS) This study identified potential relationships between maternal residential proximity to agricultural use of neurotoxic pesticides and poorer neurodevelopment in children. Pesticides Children | Pregnant females United States acephate | Carbamates | Chlorpyrifos | Diazinon | Fungicides, Industrial | Malathion | methyl demeton | Pyrethrins Details Neurocognitive Disorders | Prenatal Exposure Delayed Effects | cognition
11. Richardson JR, et al. (2014). Elevated serum dichlorodiphenyl dichloroethylene (DDE) levels are associated with an increased risk for Alzheimer disease, and APOE4 carriers may be more susceptible (as the allele modifies an association between DDE and scores); in vitro, both DDT and DDE increase amyloid precursor protein levels, providing mechanistic plausibility for the association. genetics Pesticides Controls for disease:Alzheimer Disease | Subjects with disease:Alzheimer Disease | Subjects with gene influence:APOE United States brain | serum Dichlorodiphenyl Dichloroethylene Details Alzheimer Disease | Disease Progression
12. Kim SA, et al. (2015). National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) The difference in the association between hypertension and cognition test scores according to the levels of organochlorine pesticides suggest a key role of pesticides in the development of hypertension-related cognitive impairment. Pesticides Controls for disease:Hypertension | Subjects with disease:Hypertension United States serum beta-hexachlorocyclohexane | DDT | Dichlorodiphenyl Dichloroethylene | Heptachlor Epoxide | nonachlor | oxychlordane Details Cognition Disorders
13. Jedrychowski WA, et al. (2015). To our knowledge, this is the first epidemiologic study showing that prenatal polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) exposure measured by cord blood PAH-DNA adducts is associated with cognitive dysfunction (depressed verbal IQ index) assessed by the WISC-R test, which is the commonly used instrument for measuring intelligence of children. Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons Children Poland blood, cord polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons-DNA adduct Details Cognition Disorders | Learning Disorders | cognition
14. Chen R, et al. (2013). Participants exposed to environmental tobacco smoke had a significantly increased risk of severe dementia syndromes. This was dose-dependently related to exposure level and duration. Significant associations with severe syndromes were found in never-smokers and in former/current smokers. There were no positive associations with moderate dementia. Environmental tobacco smoke should be considered an important risk factor for severe dementia. tobacco Tobacco Smoke Pollution Study subjects China Details Dementia
15. Graham KA, et al. (2015). While there was no significant difference in mean 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels between schizophrenic and healthy subjects, we did find that lower vitamin D levels in schizophrenia subjects were associated with more severe negative symptoms and overall cognitive deficits. Vitamin D Controls for disease:Schizophrenia | Subjects with disease:Schizophrenia United States serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D Details Cognition Disorders | cognition
