Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a clinical syndrome characterized by a progressive decrease in activities allowing the ability to carry out basic activities of daily life such as memory, speech, visual functionality, personality, and behavior. There are about 50 million people living with AD worldwide and treatment options are limited. The success of the struggle against disease depends on early diagnosis. Recently, runny nose tests, used in the early diagnosis of AD, have an important place in the early diagnosis of the disease.
