Alzheimer's disease is a dementia disorder in the world in the elderly. Today the disease has spread over 860000 cases in France according to WHO (World Organization of Health) and that number keeps growing each year.

Often referred to the twenty-first century, this disease attacks the brain and isnot a progressive loss of mental abilities such as language, reasoning and memory. This even the human being has also evolved.

There are two kinds of anomalies, lesions responsible for the disease. Discovered in 1906 by Alois Alzheimer, these abnormalities are specific to this disorder.
Also called Tau pathology or Tauopathy, neurofibrillary degeneration is an intra neuronal injury, due to the aggregation of tau proteins, which form pathological filaments in neurons.
