A Paradigm Shift to Prevent and Treat Alzheimer s Disease Book Excerpt:

A Paradigm Shift to Prevent and Treat Alzheimer’s Disease: From Monotargeting Pharmaceuticals to Pleiotropic Plant Polyphenols is the first book to systematically exhibit the powerful pleiotropic pharmacological effects on Alzheimer’s disease of plant-based compounds from ancient foods that humans have been consuming safely with substantial health benefits for thousands of years. These plant-based compounds include curcuminoids from turmeric, resveratrol from red wine and grape seed extract from other grape products, epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCG) from green tea, and oleocanthal and oleuropein from olive oil, in addition to a special extract, EGb 761, from the leaves of Ginkgo biloba, the oldest living species of tree on earth. This book also presents a new analytical framework that convincingly favors a multi-targeting ("pleiotropic") approach to the prevention and treatment of complex chronic diseases, in contrast to the mono-targeting of the pharmaceutical model. A Paradigm Shift to Prevent and Treat Alzheimer’s Disease is a unique and exciting resource for pharmaceutical scientists, pharmacologists, neurologists, general practitioners, research scientists in various medical and life sciences, healthcare professionals in clinical and executive positions, conventional medical schools, schools of naturopathic medicine, healthcare and medical journalists, executives in both national public healthcare systems and private insurers, and informed general readers. Presents carefully compiled evidence supporting the need to shift from pharmaceutical-based mono-targeting to plant polyphenol-based pleiotropic targeting for the prevention and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease Includes valuable tables that aggregate pleiotropic pharmacological effects of the plant polyphenols on Alzheimer’s disease-related pathogenic hallmarks Highlights regulatory aspects and discusses the challenges and potential solutions with respect to bioavailability of certain plant polyphenols

Muscle Aging Inclusion Body Myositis and Myopathies Book Excerpt:

Muscle weakness with ageing is almost inevitable, generally beginning to manifest beyond the age of 40, and is usually unstoppable. It can lead to reduced mobility, increased risk of falling, injury, and even death. But ?you?re just getting old? is not a sufficient diagnosis. Specific causes of neuromuscular symptoms may explain progressive muscle weakness, and should be investigated for potential treatment. Muscle Ageing, Inclusion-Body Myositis and Myopathies explores the clinical and pathological expression of muscle weakness in aging persons. Case studies demonstrate how physicians can more accurately diagnose weakening elderly patients and make better management decisions. It also explores sporadic inclusion-body myositis and hereditary inclusion-body myopathies. The former, the most common progressive muscle disease in the over 50s, is frequently under-diagnosed and, with the increasing population of aged individuals, is presenting a greater challenge. This disease of muscle has pathological similarities with the well-known Alzheimer and Parkinson brain diseases. Edited and written by a leading international cast of authors, Muscle Ageing, Inclusion-Body Myositis and Myopathies provides a state-of-the-art guide to ageing-associated neuromuscular disorders. It should be in the hands of all those involved in the care of aging and muscle-weakened patients.

Understanding Alzheimer s Disease Book Excerpt:

Alzheimer's disease has received growing attention in recent years because the affected population is growing quickly as life spans in America creep ever upward. As they near retirement, many Americans start to fear that any minor memory lapse-misplacing the keys or forgetting a name-might spell Alzheimer's. In reality such incidents are a normal part of the aging process. In Alzheimer's disease, such incidents progress to a point at which they interfere with normal daily activities on a regular basis, and memory loss becomes progressively more disabling. This book is written for anyone interested in learning more about Alzheimer's disease-people who have it, their families and caregivers, professionals who serve such people, teachers, and anyone with a general interest in the disease. An important feature of this book is clear explanation of the basic biology of the disease. Here is information about who gets the disease, how it is diagnosed, and what happens to people who have it. A large section is devoted to the subject of caring for affected individuals, including legal and financial planning advice and pointers for finding outside support services. Existing treatments are discussed along with suggestions for handling many symptoms without drugs. Understanding Alzheimer's Disease describes the most current knowledge of how and why it arises and gives information about the many avenues being explored in search of a cure. With its chapters on causes and on the search for treatments, this guide will be of interest to a wider section of the population than other books on the disease.
