Keywords Alzheimer’s disease; Etiologies; Iron; Oxidative stress; Thrombin; Vascular risk factors
Core Tip Patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have not benefited from any disease-modifying drug until now. Multiple etiologic pathways have been explored and suggest promising solutions in the future. The iron chelator deferoxamine is one potential therapeutic solution around which future studies are being directed. Another potential therapeutic solution is related to thrombin inhibitors. In this minireview, a common pathophysiological pathway is suggested for the pathogenesis of AD that is initiated by the presence of vascular risk factors inducing brain tissue hypoxia and endothelial cell activation. In predisposed individuals, this can lead to thrombin activation and iron decompartmentalization. The resulting oxidative stress will eventually lead to neuronal and glial cell death.
