Alzheimer's disease (AD), also referred to simply as Alzheimer's, is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and gradually worsens over time. It is the cause of 60–70% of cases of dementia. The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events. As the disease advances, symptoms can include problems with language, disorientation (including easily Specialty: Neurology. addition, the article describes advances in the use of biomarkers for diagnosis of AD and highlights ongoing efforts to develop novel therapies. ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE Alois Alzheimer and Auguste D The German psychiatrist and neuropathologist Dr. Alois Alzheimer is credited with describing for the first time. Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and, eventually, the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear in their mids. Estimates vary, but experts suggest that more than million Americans, most of them age.

Studies of Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common of these diseases of the central nervous system (CNS), illustrate the complementary contributions of advances in both clinical and basic research. Effective therapies for AD are a major unmet medical need because of its demographics (incidence/prevalence); morbidity/mortality rates. Developing Therapeutics for Alzheimer's Disease: Progress and Challenges. provides a thorough overview of the latest advances toward the development of therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease, along with the major hurdles that still must be overcome and potential solutions to these problems.. Despite the lack of progress toward developing therapeutics that can slow or stop the progression of. Alzheimer's disease was first described in In the century since then, scientists have made remarkable strides in understanding how Alzheimer's affects the brain and learning how to make life better for affected individuals and families. Below are some important milestones in our progress, including the founding of the Alzheimer's. Despite advances in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), there is currently no prospect of a cure, and evidence shows that multifactorial interventions can benefit patients.

Neuroprotection in Alzheimer’s Disease offers a translational point-of-view from both basic and clinical standpoints, putting it on the cusp for further clinical development with its emphasis on nerve cell protection, including the accumulation of knowledge from failed clinical trials and new advances in disease management.. This book brings together the latest findings, both basic, and. Neuroprotection in Autism, Schizophrenia and Alzheimer's Disease provides an up-to-date overview on recent clinical studies and the similarities discovered in the most prevalent brain disorders. The book's content will help shed light on basic mechanisms and provide new avenues for early diagnosis toward disease prevention and disease modification.
