Description

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.
