Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is a severe neurodegenerative disease that can cause dementia in mainly elderlies, afflicting millions of patients around the world (Merriam, 1988). Exact causations of AD are still unknown. However, numerous different therapies are proposed, and they show different therapeutic effects towards the disease. In this paper, current main therapies of AD are examined, and future potential therapies are proposed and discussed. Traditional pharmacy therapies, surgery, and other mature methods are listed and examined. Potential therapies like dietary therapy, neuroglia-related therapy, and gene therapy are discussed, and new research orientations are introduced as well.
