Although Alzheimer's disease was formally described as a distinct clinical-neuropathological entity at the turn of the century, the intense research effort on this disorder was not mobilized until the 1970s. In the last 20 years, a rich array of new ideas on diagnosis, treatment, risk factors and possible cause(s) have emerged. The wealth of new information has led to the formulation of many current theories. However, little attempt has been made to integrate the different ideas or to establish a coherent link among the distinct theories, which at times appear to be at odds with one another and/or with the available data.
