Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of neurodegenerative disorder occurring in mid to late life. Among the individuals 65 years of age or older, 7-10% of the population is affected by AD. Because of significant increase in life expectancy, the prevalence of AD will increase dramatically worldwide. It is estimated that the incidence of AD will increase by over 100% in the industrial countries, and by more than 300% in developing countries, which makes the understanding of AD a central topic of medical research worldwide.
