Alzheimer's disease has been an unsolved puzzle for scientists since the first patient was found over 100 years ago. Different theories like cholinergic hypothesis, amyloid cascade hypothesis, and tau protein hypothesis have made progress in research but failed to bring new therapies to patients. In recent years scientists started to focus on the brain-gut axis, with its breakthrough in the fields of Parkinson's disease, depression and autism. Data linking the microbiome to Alzheimer's disease and GV-971 targeting the brain-gut axis launched by Shanghai Green Valley Pharmaceuticals were presented at the 34th Alzheimer's Association International Conference (AAIC).
