Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a severe health challenge; AD is the most common cause of dementia, affecting aging people worldwide. Over 50 million individuals have some form of dementia; most are caused by AD, and cases of AD will continue to rise in the future. Although the diseases that cause dementia have long been considered intractable and incurable, there is hope. Researchers have identified that the extracellular deposition of amyloid β (Aβ) peptides and intracellular neurofibrillary tangles are primarily involved in AD’s pathogenesis. Yet, we still know little about the pathogenesis of AD and have limited clinical treatments for AD. In this Special Issue, we welcome new advances in AD; these include, but are not limited to, the following topics: prevention of AD; early identification of AD biomarkers; genes involved in AD; novel treatments aimed at Aβ plaques; preventing tau from forming tangles; reducing brain cell inflammation; and the connection between the heart and head.
