Abstract
Abeta Peptide and Alzheimer's Disease summarizes current knowledge of beta-amyloid peptide (Aß) and its role as the major culprit in Alzheimer's Disease (AD), shown by recent advances in genetics and brain biochemistry. Written by leaders in the industrial and academic world specializing in this rapidly moving area, the book covers fundamental biochemical studies on the Aß peptide, the genetic impact on Aß expression and processing, and various AD therapeutic strategies that target Aß. Although specifically focusing on Aß and AD, there is also some discussion on the similarity and differences of this peptide and AD with other amyloidogenic diseases, such as prion disease, Parkinson's and Huntington's. This book will primarily be of interest to AD researchers and clinicians but also to researchers of other amyloid diseases.
Contents
A Brief Introduction to the History of the ß-Amyloid Protein (Aß) of Alzheimer’s Disease -- The Aßcentric Pathway of Alzheimer's Disease -- The Function of the Amyloid Precursor Protein Family -- The Involvement of Aß in the Neuroinflammatory Response -- Amyloid ß-Peptide(1-42), Oxidative Stress, and Alzheimer's Disease -- Amyloid Toxicity, Synaptic Dysfunction, and the Biochemistry of Neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's Disease -- Aß Variants and Their Impact on Amyloid Formation and Alzheimer's Disease Progression -- Copper Coordination by ß-Amyloid and the Neuropathology of Alzheimer's Disease -- Cholesterol and Alzheimer's Disease -- Amyloid ß-Peptide and Central Cholinergic Neurons: Involvement in Normal Brain Function and Alzheimer's Disease Pathology -- Physiologic and Neurotoxic Properties of Aß Peptides -- Impact of ß-Amyloid on the Tau Pathology in Tau Transgenic Mouse and Tissue Culture Models -- Glial Cells and Aß Peptides in Alzheimer's Disease Pathogenesis -- The Role of Presenilins in Aß-Induced Cell Death in Alzheimer's Disease -- Immunotherapeutic Approaches to Alzheimer's Disease -- Mouse Models of Alzheimer's Disease.

Abstract
This book provides a practically focused resource on the methodologies available for diagnosing and treating Alzheimer’s disease. The number of individuals affected by the disease continues to grow and as such there is an ever-increasing need for clear easy-to-digest guidance on how to appropriately diagnose and treat these patients. Within this work, chapters provide concise informative details of what this form of dementia is, how it can be diagnosed, managed and prevented making it ideal for those with limited experience in dealing with these patients. Information is provided on how to use a variety of the latest relevant techniques including mental state examinations, functional assessments, special investigations and the available drug treatments. Alzheimer’s Disease: Diagnosis & Treatment Guide is a concise clinical guide detailing how to diagnose and treat these patients. It’s easy-to-follow ideal for use by front-line physicians and trainees, who have no previous experience of diagnosing and treating this disease. The assessment component of the book is based on the WHO Mental Health Gap Action Plan (mhGAP) Dementia Intervention Guide for non-specialized settings.

Abstract
This compelling text provides an overview of the available technology for early detection and therapeutic management of vascular risk factors to Alzheimer's before severe cognitive impairment symptoms appear. Chapters bring the reader from the trackless clinical research that has characterized Alzheimer's progress for the last 20 years, to a nexus of new ideas and concepts that can change our outlook of this dementia. In-depth examinations of various hypotheses, preventive measures, current and prospective treatments are openly and clearly explored. The author discusses in depth his proposal of the vascular hypothesis of Alzheimer's disease which has become a mother-lode for basic and clinical studies and a key approach to the prevention of this dementia. Alzheimer's Turning Point offers professionals, students and those looking to learn more about this disorder a fresh clinical perspective of this devastating disease.
