EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

First documented at the turn of the century by German neurologist Alois Alzheimer, Alzheimer's disease is the most common dementia in older adults, robbing them of their minds and dignity. With the aging of the world's population, incidences of this degenerative brain disease are set to dramatically increase by 2010. However, there may be hope. Research at the genetic level is uncovering secrets of what makes up the disease and how it works. Presenting a history of Alzheimer's disease, this title looks at the human genome and explores how the pieces of the Alzheimer's puzzle are beginning to fit together. Alzheimer's Disease is an adventure into the exciting world of the search for a cure.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book will support an issue as important as self-management of chronic diseases, es- cially AD, in finding its way into the daily life of patients and their caregivers as well as into treatment worldwide. It is written for healthcare professionals, aging researchers/scientists, patients with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers, managers of eldercare facilities, public health authorities, umbrella organisations of Alzheimer associations, Alzheimer associations, health care administrators, health economists and government officials. It is my pleasant duty to thank Merz Pharma (Schweiz) AG in Allschwil-Switzerland to purchase 40 copies of the book. To finish this book, a long and sometimes arduous path had to be traveled. Now that it is over, I feel profoundly thankful towards all authors for participating in this project, p- ticularly Eva Krebs-Roubicek, MD for her contribution, the three models on the cover of this book; and especially to Julie and Jean-Luc for their great understanding and loving - sistance. Sabine Bährer-Kohler, Editor of the book VII Foreword Alzheimer’s disease is one of those diseases which is steadily increasing worldwide. Treating Alzheimer’s disease is able to modify its course but does not yet cure it. Alzheimer’s disease is an enormous challenge not only for the afflicted person but also for the relatives.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common type of neurodegenerative disorder in the ageing population, with dementia as a common consequence. AD is defined pathologically by the appearance of extracellular senile plaques and intracellular neurofibrillary tangles, as described by Alois Alzheimer about a century ago. The causes for AD include genetic predisposition in a small population, ageing and environmental stresses in majority cases. The underlying pathogenic cascades, increases in expression of amyloid precursor protein and accumulation of Aß and reactive oxidant activity and inflammation, have the features of both adaptive, at least initially, and harmful when becoming excessive. Dementia, on the other hand, is a clinical diagnosis and is defined as globally, persistently impaired cognitive skills including memory. Alzheimer dementia refers to clinical dementia in patients who also have Alzheimer neuropathology. Alzheimer dementia is what brings the patients to seek medical treatments. An extraordinary inability to form new memory, especially of those episodic type, and executive dysfunction are among the earliest symptoms in AD patients. In end-stage AD, cognitive degeneration extends far beyond memory loss. The underlying causes include decreases in impaired brain metabolism, which results in impaired synaptic functions and capacities, thus impaired information processing, and eventually leads to neuronal injury and death. This book presents leading-edge research in this dynamic field.

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Over 4 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer's disease, which is an organic disorder that is progressive, debilitating, and irreversible. The economic cost of treating and providing care for those with Alzheimer's is over $40 billion a year. The emotional cost to the sufferers and their families is beyond estimation. Yet Alzheimer's is often misdiagnosed, mistreated, and mismanaged. The purpose of this book is to help physicians, health care administrators, graduate students and researchers better understand diagnostic procedures, treatment and management factors related to Alzheimer's disease and other dementias in the elderly.

Heterogeneity Of Alzheimer   S Disease

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The term "Alzheimer's disease" is currently used to refer to senile and also presenile dementia, but the heterogeneity of this disorder is demonstrated in many of its aspects. This is of great theoretical interest, and with the appearance of new therapeutic interventions, it may well also start to have very significant practical importance. To shed some light on the debate, the Fondation Ipsen organized an international symposium which took place on April 6, 1992. This volume contains the proceedings of this meeting, which was attended by researchers in epidemiology, clinical neurology and geriatrics, neuropsychology, neuropathology, molecular biology, and genetics.

The Person With Alzheimer S Disease

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Few families are untouched by Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. Moving accounts of what it is like to care for someone with this disease have already been published, as well as how-to books that offer caregivers advice and information on coping. But this book is the first to provide a comprehensive report of what it is like to have dementia oneself—the subjective experience of living with progressive memory loss. Each chapter discusses a different aspect of having dementia, from the initial assessment and diagnosis through placement in a nursing home. The discussions are grounded in qualitative research and case studies, which convey the variable and personal nature of the experience. They seek to help clinicians, researchers, students, and caregivers (both professionals and family members) understand the experience of dementia, and thereby to promote better caregiving through a person-centered approach.

Topics In Alzheimer S Disease

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Dementia is a brain disorder that seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities. The most common form of dementia among older people is Alzheimer's Disease (AD), which involves the parts of the brain that control memory, thought and language. Age is the most important known risk factor for AD. The number of people with the disease doubles every 5 years beyond the age of 65. AD is a slow disease, starting with mild memory loss and ending with severe brain damage. The course the disease takes and how fast changes occur vary from person to person. On average, AD patients live from 8 to 10 years after they are diagnosed, though the disease can last for as many as 20 years. Current research is aimed at understanding why AD occurs and who is at greatest risk for developing it, improving the accuracy of diagnosis and ability to identify who is at risk, developing, discovering and testing new treatments for behavioural problems in patients with AD. This new book gathers state-of-the-art research from leading scientists throughout the world which offers important information on understanding the underlying causes and discovering the most effective treatments for Alzheimer's Disease.
