Summary The eighth volume of Evidence-based Clinical Chinese Medicine aims to provide a multi-faceted "whole evidence" analysis of the management of Alzheimer's disease in Chinese and integrative medicine.Beginning with overviews of how Alzheimer's disease is conceptualized and managed in both conventional medicine and contemporary Chinese medicine, the authors then provide detailed analyses of how dementia and memory disorders were treated with herbal medicine and acupuncture in past eras.In the subsequent chapters, the authors comprehensively review the current state of the clinical trial evidence for Chinese herbal medicines, acupuncture and other Chinese medicine therapies in the management of Alzheimer's disease, as well as analyse and evaluate the results of these studies from an evidence-based medicine perspective. The outcomes of these analyses are summarised and discussed in terms of their implications for the clinical practice of Chinese medicine and for future research. This book can inform clinicians and students in the fields of integrative and Chinese medicine of the current state of the evidence for a range of Chinese medicine therapies in Alzheimer's disease, including the use of particular herbal formulas and acupuncture treatments in order to assist clinicians in making evidence-based decisions in patient care. -- from book cover.
