    Abstract: "Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. Severe memory loss, confusion, and impaired
    cognitive abilities characterize AD. It was only a century after Alzheimer’s discovery that scientists were able to
    shed light on the mystery of its cause, but AD has also become a globally important health issue and the treatment of AD is a challenge for modern medicine. At present, there are five drugs approved in the United States
    for the treatment of AD, namely, donepezil, galantamine, rivastigmine, and tacrine (which are all cholinesterase
    inhibitors); and memantine (which is a glutamate receptor antagonist). However, these drugs show only modest
    effects on AD patients. Thus, new investigations are necessary for pharmacological development in AD. This brief
    review focuses on new studies that demonstrate the link between epigenetics and AD, and explores the possibility
    that insomnia may be one factor that effects AD. [Taiwan J Obstet Gynecol 2010;49(4):468–472]"
