Alzheimer's disease (AD), also referred to simply as Alzheimer's, is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and gradually worsens over time. It is the cause of 60–70% of cases of dementia. The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events. As the disease advances, symptoms can include problems with language, disorientation Specialty: Neurology.

The causes for AD include genetic predisposition in a 3/5(1). Alzheimer’s Disease Progress Report: Advancing Research Toward a Cure.

It slowly destroys brain function, leading to: cognitive decline (e.g., memory loss, language difficulty, poor executive function); behavioral and psychiatric disorders (e.g., depression, delusions, agitation); and.

Dementia, of which Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form, is estimated to affect 36 million people worldwide. This number is expected to rise to million by unless an effective therapeutic is developed.
