Alzheimer's Disease.

Clinical Study Title:
A pilot study of vitamins to lower plasma homocysteine levels in Alzheimer disease.

Plain English Summary:
This study examined the effect of a multivitamin use on the homocysteine levels of patients with Alzheimer's disease. A total of 69 participants were enrolled in the study. A multivitamin regime or a high dose of vitamins was given to patients over the course of 8 weeks. At follow-up all participants still in the study had reductions in the homocysteine levels of their blood. This suggests that certain nutritional alterations, such as supplementing diets with a multivitamin, for patients with Alzheimer's disease may help to keep their blood and plasma levels within the normal range and may reduce the risk of this disease. Vitamins E and C in combination provided the best prevention.
