Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a growing global health crisis, however, there are currently very few effective treatments for it. All existent treatments serve only to ameliorate the symptoms of AD instead of curing it. With the deepening of the disease pathology in recent years, there have been many studies and clinical trials that aim to discover new disease-modifying therapies. Nanoparticle drug delivery platform is a promising path for its high penetration rate across the blood brain barrier, while heat shock proteins provide a new strategy to target the mutant proteins that cause AD. These novel therapies may help us better treat and potentially cure AD, but many of them are still in their early stage of development and their side effects are still unknown. A truly effective treatment for AD is still years ahead.
