Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disease worldwide. First described in 1906, it was known for years as senile dementia, but today we know that most cases of senile dementia are AD. WHO data states that it affects over 50 million people worldwide and this is set to triple by 2050. It is the main cause of disability in the elderly and the second specific cause of death in Spain.
