Alzheimer’s disease, one of the most rapidly growing neurodegenerative disorders, is characterized by a progressive loss of memory. Despite several advances in the field of medical therapeutics, a viable treatment for Alzheimer’s disease would be of great importance. Medicinal plants represent a largely untapped reservoir of natural medicines and potential sources of anti-Alzheimer’s drugs. The structural diversity of their phytoconstituents makes these plants a valuable source of novel lead compounds in the quest for drugs to treat Alzheimer’s disease. Based on traditional literature and up-to-date research, various new therapeutically active compounds have been identified from phytoextracts, which could be useful in the treatment of cognitive disorders.

Phytomedicine and Alzheimer’s Disease presents information on

  • Mechanistic aspects of neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease and the role of phytochemicals as restorative agents
  • Understanding the complex biochemical aspects of Alzheimer’s disease
  • Pre-clinical approaches to evaluating drugs to target Alzheimer’s disease
  • Assessing alternative approaches to treating Alzheimer’s disease and the role of alternative medicine to delay the symptomatic progression of this disease
  • Epigenetic changes in Alzheimer’s disease and possible therapeutic or dietary interventions

This book serves as an excellent resource for scientific investigators, academics, biochemists, botanists, and alternative medicine practitioners who work to advance the role of phytomedicines in treating Alzheimer’s disease.
