Alzheimer's Disease: Treatment Approaches

  • Alzheimer's Disease: Treatment Approaches

    There is no drug available to prevent or cure Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The only treatment approach to managing patients is symptom control. The FDA-approved drugs for AD work by modulating neurotransmitters, either acetylcholine or glutamate, and include acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AcHEI) and partial N-methyl-D-aspartate antagonists. Current treatment options do not cure AD, stop or reverse the disease process, or prolong life. The available medications may only reduce symptoms for a period of time before the disease eventually progresses. Primary goals of treatment include symptom management and preserving the patient's function for as long as possible.  A variety of potential therapies have been proposed for AD. These include anti-inflammatory agents, lipid-lowering agents, vitamin E therapy, estrogen therapy, ginkgo biloba, huperzine alpha, and polyphenols. Although current evidence is mostly conflicting, further studies are needed to clarify the role of these agents.
