MedPage Today (9/16, George) reported, “Older adults with COVID-19 were more likely to have a new diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease a year later than non-infected people, an analysis of electronic medical record (EMR) data showed.” According to researchers, “the risk for a new diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease in older” patients with COVID-19 “within 360 days after SARS-CoV-2 infection was 0.68%,” compared to 0.47% among “a matched group of older adults without SARS-CoV-2 infection.” These data were published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. HealthDay (9/16, Thompson) reported the senior researcher said, “We found the highest risk increase was observed in people older than 85 years old, and also women.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
