Abstract

In India, the plethora of evidence indicates that neurodegenerative conditions are a significant public health issue wherein over 4 million Indian peoples have been affected. For the past two decades, the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is growing rapidly in India that may due to the significant lack of health-care services and poor knowledge of AD and another form of dementia. Therefore, this in turn to develop ultramodern techniques for the efficient detection of AD biomarkers that helps to the prognosis and diagnosis of AD. Recently, significant progress has been observed in the area of AD that includes prognosis, and diagnosis of AD. This review article discussed different risk factors associated with AD, data on the dissemination of AD in India according to different virtues and socio-economic categories. The different standard diagnostic techniques commonly used for the identification of AD biomarkers are mentioned. This review also focuses on the new techniques established by Indian researchers such as surface plasmon resonance centered biosensors, and fluorescence-based probes that offer the enormous potential of highly sensitive and selective detection AD biomarkers. In conclusion, the present review article is providing a short overview of AD prevalence and AD-centered research in India.
