This study looks at whether taking the antioxidant N-acetylcysteine can improve cognitive impairment for people with coronary artery disease and early memory problems, or mild vascular cognitive impairment, while participating in an exercise training program.
Eligibility–Who can participate?
be between 55 and 85 years of age
have coronary artery disease
be willing to participate in a 6-month supervised exercise program
9 visits over 24 weeks.
Participants will be asked to give blood samples and perform cognitive tests at three time points. We will also use new techniques to accurately measure the amount of cell damage in blood, and evaluate whether the treatment works better in people with certain brain characteristics on MRI scans.
