Introduction

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is currently recognized as an untreatable, progressive, degenerative and terminal disease that is globally afflicting an estimated 36 million people and this number is growing in an unabated and frightening manner. Advances in Alzheimer Research, provides researchers with an integrated approach to AD academic literature ranging from basic to advanced clinical research. The series highlights the latest information in order to unravel the origin, pathogenesis and prevention of AD. The purpose of this book series is, therefore, to capture and discuss both, improvements towards the diagnosis and potential treatment of AD by established and novel strategies.

This first volume of the series provides an important mechanism to bring individuals having a variety of scientific interests and expertise under one roof to specifically focus on AD and related dementias. This volume presents articles on beta amyloid protein targets as well as research on secretase enzyme systems among other topics that deal with AD therapy.
