Alzheimer's disease pathology involves β-amyloid and tau. Various potential pharmacological targets are discussed that may be able to alleviate the accumulation of β-amyloid and tau. Possible causes of Alzheimer's disease are discussed involving impaired glucose and lipid metabolism and obesity. Adipokines may be involved in the etiology of Alzheimer's disease.
