Alzheimer Disease

 

Alzheimer disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by a slow and progressive loss of cognitive functions. In developed countries it is most common form of late-onset dementia over 60 years old. The main pathological hallmarks of AD are extracellular amyloid plaques, intracellular neurofibrillary tangles, and loss of neurons and synapses. These changes result in a cerebral atrophy with cognitive and neuropsychiatric symptoms. The vast majority of cases of Alzheimer's disease are late-onset cases over 60 years. However, there are early forms of AD in which genetic load is high and associated with mutations in APP, PSEN1, and PSEN2 genes.
