Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a devastating and dehumanizing illness affecting increasingly large numbers of elderly and even middle-aged persons in a worldwide epidemic. Alzheimer's Disease: A Physician's Guide to Practical Management was written by selected clinicians and scientists who represent some of the world's leading centers of excellence in AD research. The editors are proud and grateful for their profound contributions. This book is particularly designed to assist physicians and other health-care professionals in the evaluation, assessment, and treatment of individuals with AD. At the same time, by illuminating the basic scientific background, we hope to provide state-of-the art information about the disease and possible future therapeutic strategies. The recent psychiatric treatment aspects of AD are also clearly presented. Because the early diagnosis of the dementia process is now considered of increasing importance, we focus particularly in several chapters on early changes and preclinical conditions, such as mild cognitive impairment and predementia AD.

"This is an easy-to-read and accessible book that presents an impressive amount of detail and information. It will appeal to physicians who want more background and detail as they approach their Alzheimer's patients, rather than just a simple "cookbook" recipe for treatment.

Physicians who establish specialized clinics or units for the care of Alzheimer's patients will find this book especially useful."-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal "...chapters on pathophysiology lucidly explain the evidence supporting the role of oxidative stress, as well as the roles and interrelationships of mutant amyloid precursor protein, presenilin, and tau...The section on clinical assessment provides many clinical pearls that can help the clinician recognize dementias often mistaken for Alzheimer disease." - Annals of Internal Medicine "...a mine of useful information that gives an honest cross-sectional view of our knowledge about dementia." - Institute for Ageing and Health
