  • Preventing Alzheimer's disease (AD) would require knowledge about its etiology to a degree of detail not yet available. The major hurdle in understanding the disease lies in teasing out the various causes and their complex interactions. Since considerable data have accrued showing that the essential trace element selenium (Se) might play different roles in the progression of AD, we conducted a systematic review of the literature regarding Se and AD. We identified 9 placebo-controlled studies (6… CONTINUE READING
