Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an irreversible and progressive neurodegenerative disease. Dementia is the leading cause of AD that affects about over 30 million people worldwide. According to the world Alzheimer report 2018, new case of dementia develops in every three seconds around the world. AD is a major disease has no effective ways to cure, reverse and slow down of disease progression once symptoms start. Many researchers are used multi-target strategies for the treatment of AD such as β-amyloid peptide aggregation inhibitors, γ and β-secretase inhibitors & modulators, anti-amyloid immunotherapy, tau hyperphosphorylation inhibitors (e.g. JNK3, CDK5, GSK3β & Fyn kinase), tau aggregation inhibitors, microtubules stabilization, anti-tau immunotherapy, AChE inhibitors, 5-HT6 antagonism, anti-diabetic/metabolic regulation therapies and Cdk5 inhibitors but these approaches have a limited success to cure the AD. Beside the use of above medicinal treatment, Natural compounds are also contributed to several distinctive treatments modalities for the treatment of the AD without side effect. So this special issue will specially focus on to natural compounds for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.

We invite researchers to contribute original research and review articles that will help to elucidate the therapeutic potential for Alzheimer’s disease. We encourage the submission of all the studies dealing with the use of natural compound describing the role of respective herbs for neuroprotective and ant-oxidative properties in Alzheimer’s disease.
