Alzheimer's Disease

What is Alzheimer's Disease:
AD is an acquired cognitive and behavioral impairment of sufficient severity that markedly interferes with social and occupational functioning.
The most common form of dementia, AD affects about 4.5 million people in the United States alone, and that number is projected to exceed 13 million by the year 2050.
The anatomic pathology of Alzheimer disease includes neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs); senile plaques (SPs; also known as beta-amyloid plaques) at the microscopic level; and cerebrocortical atrophy, which predominantly involves the association regions and particularly the medial aspect of the temporal lobe.
