A Research Paper that Defines Alzheimer’s Disease Abstract Over the next several pages, the causes, symptoms and therapies (such as they exist) pertaining to Alzheimer’s Disease will be looked at carefully. The essay will explicate how environmental factors like transition metals and stress exacerbate AD and also how Alzheimer’s appears to be explained (in part) by the amyloid cascade hypothesis. The essay will outline symptoms of the disease and deign to highlight two pharmacological interventions that seem to work. Introduction This paper is a research paper that defines Alzheimer’s disease – a disease that is well-known but one which, as of this time, appears to defy scientific efforts to eradicate it. Suffice it to say, discussing...The end:
