Alzheimer's disease (AD) refers to a particular onset and course of cognitive and functional decline associated with age together with a particular neuropathology. Metabolic, vascular, and inflammatory changes, as well as comorbid pathologies are key components of the disease process. The clinical diagnosis may be difficult, but diagnostic methods have been introduced and proven to be accurate in supporting the clinical diagnosis. Application of these methods increases, partly due to improved awareness of cognitive symptoms and the relevance of early detection and diagnosis, in particular when more efficient disease-modifying drugs become available.

Application and prospects of butylphthalide for the treatment of neurologic diseases

Chen, Xi-Qian; Qiu, Ke; Liu, Hui; More

Chinese Medical Journal. 132(12):1467-1477, June 20, 2019.

Highlight: This review comprehensively and systematically summarized the application of 3-N-butylphthalide (NBP) on neurologic diseases and briefly summarize its application to non-neurologic diseases.

Spicy food consumption is associated with cognition and cerebrospinal fluid biomarkers of Alzheimer disease

Tian, Ding-Yuan; Wang, Jun; Sun, Bin-Lu; More

Chinese Medical Journal. 134(2):173-177, January 20, 2021.

Highlight: Spicy food consumption is closely related to higher cognition levels and reversed AD biomarkers in the CSF, suggesting that a capsaicin-rich diet might have the potential to modify the cognitive status and cerebral pathologies associated with AD.

Selective impairment of musical emotion recognition in patients with amnesic mild cognitive impairment and mild to moderate Alzheimer disease

Zhou, Shan-Shan; Gao, Xin; Hu, Ya-Juan; More

Chinese Medical Journal. 132(19):2308-2314, October 5, 2019.

Highlight: This case study suggests that, when identifying a patient with bullous pemphigoid (BP) and suspected mental disorders, clinicians should be aware of the possibility of neurological disease (ND).

Alzheimer's disease identified in a patient with bullous pemphigoid by dementia screening scales

Zhao, Wen-Ling; Wang, Yi-Man; Yuan, Jing; More

Chinese Medical Journal. 132(13):1619-1620, July 5, 2019.

Highlight: This case study suggests that, when identifying a patient with bullous pemphigoid (BP) and suspected mental disorders, clinicians should be aware of the possibility of neurological disease (ND).

Sleep quality of spousal caregivers is associated with neuropsychiatric symptoms and living ability of patients with Alzheimer disease

Chen, Yi; Wang, Jun-Yang; Liu, Xiao-Yan; More

Chinese Medical Journal. 132(12):1490-1493, June 20, 2019.

Highlight: Sleep disturbance is common among informal spousal caregivers and is associated with patients’ mental and physical function, as well as caregiver anxiety and depression.

Yu, Hang; Wang, Man-Li; Xu, Xiao-Lan; More

Chinese Medical Journal. 134(6):662-664, March 20, 2021.

Highlight: This review updated the recent findings on electroencephalography spectrum analysis, sleep architecture measurement, brain networks research, and their correlation with Alzheimer's disease disease progression.

Bai, Yi-Jing; Liu, Xiao-Wei; Le, Wei-Dong

Chinese Medical Journal. 134(6):665-667, March 20, 2021.

Highlight: This review summarizes the recent advances in the neuroimaging and genetic characteristics of the non-fluent/agrammatic variant of primary progressive aphasia.
