Current State of Alzheimer

Current State of Alzheimer's Disease Research and Therapeutics

This new volume of Advances in Pharmacology explores the Current State of Alzheimer's Disease Research and Therapeutics. Chapters cover such topics as the The role heat shock proteins play in the Alzheimer's Theater, Gamma-Secretase as a Target for Alzheimer's Disease, and Identification of protein kinase C for the treatment of dementias. With a variety of chapters and the best authors in the field, the volume is an essential resource for pharmacologists, immunologists and biochemists alike.
