Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive, irreversible degeneration of the brain that disrupts the thinking, language, behavioral and cognitive skills of a person. AD is more prevalent in people aged 65 years or above and affects women more than men. Globally, 35 million people are suffering from AD and this number is expected to double by 2030. AD arises due to the failure of synaptic transmission, which results in eventual death of the neurons present in the brain. AD is characterized by the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaques outside and around the neurons and the formation of neurofibrillary tangles inside the nerve cells. Neuronal loss associated with AD leads to a reduction in brain size and deposition of debris from dead and dying neurons inside the brain. AD can be categorized into Early-onset AD, Late-onset AD, and Familial AD. Early-onset AD is a rare form of AD that affects people younger than 65 years of age. Late-onset AD is the most prevalent form of AD and usually affects people aged 65 years or above. Familial AD is the inheritable form of AD with least prevalence among the three.
