Alzheimer’s disease therapies: Selected advances and future perspectives

A Ghanemi

Abstract


Among the neurodegenerative diseases, Alzheimer’s disease (AD) represents one of the biggest challenges that the modern health care system has to deal with. The lack of data about the etiology and the complexity of the underlying pathogenesis constitute the biggest struggle facing the development of new therapeutical approaches. Within this paper we describe selected currently used approaches, point some challenges and give indications about the future perspectives in AD treatments. We hope this paper together with the selected references will contribute in putting spot light on the future of AD therapies and give guidelines for both professionals and researches working on that area of the brain diseases.
