Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Alzheimer's disease (AD) accounts for most cases of dementia. AD is a complex neurodegenerative disease with potentially multifactorial etiologies such as atypical amyloid β (Aβ) deposition, neurofibrillary tangles of tau proteins inside neurons, disturbed neurotransmission, inflammation, oxidative stress, and N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR) dysfunction. AD has been rapidly increasing in our aging society; however, current treatments for AD remain unsatisfactory. Thus, there is an increasing need to develop novel therapies to prevent and/or slow the progression of AD. 
The “Developing novel therapies for Alzheimer’s disease” collection welcomes original research and review articles related to translating biology to novel treatments of Alzheimer’s disease, and the study of therapeutic biomarkers.
