About the Book

The latest volume in our Advances in Alzheimer's Disease book series – brought to you by the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease – is a remarkable compilation of research, pursuing the goal of establishing plausible links between air pollution and neurodegeneration. Six sections have been put together that include: works from epidemiological studies establishing a strong link between dementia and particulate matter and ozone; particles and nanoparticle papers describing the properties of pollution; and works describing the intricate pathways which take normal neurons to ghost tangles surrounded by a devastated brain.

About the Guest Editor

Lilian Calderón-Garcidueñas, MD, PhD, is Professor in the Environmental Neuroprevention Laboratory at the Department of Biomedical & Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Montana, Missoula, MT, USA and a JAD Senior Editor. She comments in the press release: "The book brings to light our only hope. Prevention is at hand and if we can protect millions of people exposed to air pollutants and ameliorate their brain effects, we will be on the right path to have a clean planet free of Alzheimer’s disease.” View an extract of the Guest Editor's preface below and in full here.


Preface Extract:

Alzheimer's Disease and Air Pollution

Preface (Openly Available) by Lilian Calderón-Garcidueñas

"Neuropathologists are used to seeing an overlap of 'hallmarks' in older brains, as well as the co-existence of pathologies associated with every one of the chronic-degenerative diseases killing people in this century. The missing link is still missing, except for the fact that in populations highly exposed to air pollutants, we are seeing the early stages of fatal neurodegenerative diseases in toddlers and teens and are thus witnessing their development and progression from pediatric ages. Moreover, we are also documenting cognitive, gait/equilibrium, auditory, and olfactory changes in young people, some of whom already have brain imaging abnormalities.

Pollution is much more than smog and hazy summer days, and we ought to be aware that the source of pollutants and their portals of entry play a role in the brain pathology we are documenting from childhood. Air pollution is now a focus of attention and if we could modify people’s exposures and decrease their risk for Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases that could be a major advance in a field of diseases for which we still do not have a cure."
