Introduction

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is currently recognized as an untreatable, progressive, degenerative and terminal disease that is global – afflicting over 36 million people worldwide, with the number growing in an unabated and frightening manner. The goal of the series Advances in Alzheimer’s Research , with Volumes 1 and 2, is to provide an integrated approach to AD from basic and clinical research and to highlight the valuable information in order to unravel the origin, pathogenesis and prevention of AD. The aim of this book is to both capture and discuss improvements toward the diagnosis and potential treatment of AD by both established and novel strategies. This book series, including the Volume 2, provides an important mechanism to bring under the same roof a variety of scientific interests and expertise to specifically focus on AD and related dementias. The fullest attempt has been made to disseminate the most current knowledge on recent advances in potential therapy of AD.
