Abstract
Over the past decade, an increased clinical awareness, together with advanc es in biochemical, cellular, and molecular analyses, have catapulted the st udy of Alzheimer disease to the forefront of biomedical research. During th is time, a great number of theories, regarding disease pathogenesis, have c ome and gone but several have persisted. Here, we critically evaluate these theories in an attempt to delineate the facts from the artifacts. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
