Title

Antioxidant Therapy in Alzheimer's Disease: Theory and Practice

Abstract

Alzheimer disease treatment has yet to yield a successful therapy that addresses the source of the damage found in brains. Of the varied proposed theories of AD etiology, reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation is cited as a common factor. Efforts to reduce the pathology associated with ROS via antioxidants therefore offer new hope to patients suffering from this devastative disease.
