Alzheimer's disease and other dementias vary in their onset and progression, as do patients in their responsiveness to treatment. In this book, leading experts review the current and evolving therapeutic options, including anti-amyloid therapies, neuroprotective strategies, and symptomatic treatments (both pharmacological and non-pharmacological). Also included are updates on several recent and on-going clinical trials, the development of new biomarkers to aid recognition of disease and earlier intervention, and a discussion of the pharmacoeconomics of treating dementia."@en ;
