Abstract

Insulin resistance (IR) may play a role in most pathogenic processes that promote the development of Late Onset Alzheimer Disease (LOAD). This study was designed to determine the interaction between inhibition of both butyrylcholinesterase (BuChE) and acetylcholinesterase (AChE) with rivastigmine and peripheral insulin resistance (IR) in LOAD.
