Landmark book commemorates centennial of discovery of Alzheimer's disease

IOS Press is pleased to announce the forthcoming publication of a landmark work commemorating the centennial of Alois Alzheimer's discovery of what would be known as Alzheimer's disease (AD). The book, Alzheimer's Disease: A Century of Scientific and Clinical Research, is scheduled for publication in July 2006 and its release will coincide with the 10th International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders, July 15-20 in Madrid.

The centennial of Alois Alzheimer's original description of the disease that would come to bear his name offers a vantage point from which to commemorate the seminal discoveries in the field. This milestone work has been guided by four of the most prominent voices in the field today, George Perry, Dean of the University of Texas at San Antonio College of Sciences and Professor of Pathology and Neurosciences, Case Western Reserve University, Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Alzheimer's Disease; Jess Avila, Center for Molecular Biology, University Autnoma of Madrid, Senior Editor, Journal of Alzheimer's Disease; June Kinoshita, Executive Editor, Alzheimer Research Forum; and Mark A. Smith, Department of Pathology, Case Western Reserve University, Co-Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Alzheimer's Disease. It traces how the true importance of AD as the major cause of late life dementia ultimately came to light and narrates the evolution of the concepts related to AD throughout the years and its recognition as a major public health problem, with an estimated 30-40 million people affected by AD today.

George Perry commented, "The book will bring to life, and in many instances revisit and reflect on, the classic studies that have essentially defined Alzheimer's disease research. My co-editors and I are extremely pleased that this project has attracted participation from nearly every single player in the field and, having read each contribution, I am convinced that the book is destined to become one of the defining works in the f
