Alzheimer’s Disease: Basic Mechanisms, Diagnosis and Therapeutic Strategies Edited by Khalid Iqbal New York State Institute for Basic Research, New York, USA Donald R.C. McLachlan Centre for Research on Neurodegenerative Diseases, University of Toronto, Canada Bengt Winblad Department of Geriatric Medicine, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden and Henry M. Wisniewski New York State Institute for Basic Research, New York, USA As human longevity continues to be extended, so will the impact of age-associated dementia on individual lives and society. Although recognized as one of the most devastating diseases of the human brain, the etiology and pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease are still poorly understood. Continued research is required both into the basic mechanisms of the condition and into developing diagnostic and therapeutic strategies in the clinic. Presented here is a wide-ranging, authoritative and comprehensive coverage of the most recent and significant advances in basic research and clinical investigations of Alzheimer’s disease. Areas represented include neuroimaging, brain energy metabolism, structural and molecular neuropathology, mechanisms of neuronal degeneration, role of brain amyloidosis, risk factors and epidemiology, environmental factors, genetic mechanisms, biomarkers, animal models and the clinical pharmacology of current and future therapeutic strategies. Contributions are drawn from the major research groups around the world, providing an invaluable information and reference source to both basic researchers and clinicians providing primary care for the unfortunate victims of Alzheimer’s disease.
