Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disorder with neither definitive pathogenesis nor effective therapy so far. Danshen, the dried root and rhizome of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge, is used extensively in Alzheimer's disease treatment to ameliorate the symptoms, but the underlying mechanism remains to be clarified.
