Journal of Alzheimer's Disease special issue explores multifaceted aspects of AD
Date:11/15/2007

Amsterdam, November 15, 2007 A recently published special issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease contains the contributions from experts in the field of aging, dementia and Alzheimers disease, who attended the Fourth Annual Meeting on Brain aging and Dementia: From successful aging to severe dementia. Held in Perugia in October 2006 under the auspices of the Italian Psychogeriatric Association, a member of the International Psychogeriatric Association, the meeting celebrates the centenary of Alzheimers first description of the disease.

The articles cover several topics on AD: sociological, epidemiological, clinical and biological aspects offer a wide overview on this multifaceted disease.

Robert Binstock, from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland (USA), reports some reflections on the ethical, moral and policy challenges for healthcare professionals and politicians due to the aging of industrialized nations. This social phenomenon is associated with an enhanced demand for both acute and long-term healthcare for the elderly that will increasingly strain economic resources.

Laura Fratiglioni and Hui-Xin Wang, from the Karolinska Institute of Stockholm (Sweden), review the concept of brain reserve that refers to the ability to tolerate the age-related changes and disease-related pathology in the brain without developing clear clinical symptoms. Epidemiological studies indicate that brain reserve is related to a number of aspects including high education, adult-life occupational work complexity, as well as a mentally and socially integrated lifestyle.

Guest Editor Patrizia Mecocci and colleagues from the Italian University of Perugia (Elena Mariani) and University of Palermo (Roberto Monastero) review the most recent aspects related to the epidemiological, clinical, neuropathological, neuroimaging, biochemical and therapeutic aspects of Mild Cognitive Impairment, a nosological entity proposed as an intermediate state
