Brief Summary:
This is a 5-year observational study recruiting sixteen hundred and fifty individuals between the ages of 50 and 90 with different types of dementia as well as a comparison group of six hundred and fifty aged matched individuals without cognitive deficits. Participants will be recruited at sites across Canada and will undergo assessments and provide biological samples at baseline and two years after baseline.

Condition or disease
Dementia

Detailed Description:
This is a 5-year observational study. Sixteen-hundred and fifty (1650) subjects, between the ages of 50 and 90,years old, with Subjective Cognitive Impairment, Mild Cognitive Impairment, Mild Cognitive Impairment with subcortical vascular lesions, Alzheimer's Disease, Mixed dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, Parkinson's Disease Dementia, Parkinson's Disease with Mild Cognitive Impairment and Frontotemporal Dementia, as well as 650 healthy elderly subjects without cognitive complaints or deficits, will be enrolled into this study from up to 30 centres across Canada. All subjects involved in the study will undergo rigorous evaluations at baseline, including clinical assessment, neuropsychological assessment, genomics and neuroimaging. Biological samples from blood, saliva, urine, fecal matter, buccal cells and cerebrospinal fluid will be collected, stored, and analyzed. Basic follow-up determining if there has been any change in their diagnosis will be carried out annually and longitudinal re-evaluation will be carried out after two years.

Group/Cohort
Normal healthy elderly
participants with no subjective or objective cognitive deficits or decline.
Subjective Cognitive Decline
Participants with a complaint of subjective cognitive impairment, but no objective evidence of such.
Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
Participants with objective evidence of cognitive impairment, but it does not impact on daily function.
Vascular MCI
Participants meeting criteria of MCI who also show signs of cerebrovascular disease on imaging but have no history of stroke.
Alzheimer's Disease
Participants with dementia of the Alzheimer's type according to the National Institute of Aging-Alzheimer's Association criteria
Dementia of Mixed Etiology
Participants with dementia and evidence of more than one etiology.
Lewy Body/Parkinson's spectrum
Participants with Parkinson's disease who show mild or moderate cognitive impairment and/or dementia.
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) spectrum
Participants with behavioral variant FTD, primary progressive aphasia, progressive supranuclear palsy, or corticobasal syndrome



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) score [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    change in MoCA total score. The MoCA is a test of global cognition scored out of 30 with a higher score indicating better performance. The minimum score is 0 and the maximum score is 30.


Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Blood, Saliva, Urine, Feces, Cerebrospinal Fluid
