Abstract

Fifty-seven cognitively impaired elderly patients had significantly elevated serum IgG and IgA levels and similar IgM levels, compared to a population of 65 elderly matched for age and sex, who did not manifest cognitive impairment. These findings are compatible with a current hypothesis that immunological factors may be important in the cognitive disorders observed with increasing frequency among the aged.
