As their populations age, many countries face the difficult prospect of caring for increasing numbers of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). The field of vascular pathology in Alzheimer's disease is rapidly advancing toward new frontiers in the search for improved therapy and management of Alzheimer's patients. This collection of peer-reviewed papers provides insights into our understanding of this complex dementia and possible new approaches to its treatment. Papers deal with vascular risk factors for AD (such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, and stroke), prevention and treatment of AD, pathological and genetic aspects, hemodynamics, cerebral amyloid angiopathies, diagnostic metabolism, and the role of cholesterol in AD.
