Dementia is a common disease in the elderly characterized by memory loss, cognitive dysfunction, disturbance of consciousness, selfcare ability and social activities decline or even loss. According to its cause is divided into the following three class: Alzheimer's disease dementia, vascular dementia, mixed dementia . The incidence of dementia increases with age. International estimated that there will be 11500000 people suffering from Alzheimer's disease/dementia in 2050 and a large part from developing regions or countries, such as Africa, India, Latin America, China, south Asia and the western Pacific region, Ferri et al. [2,3]. Dementia, a devastating as well costly disorder, is the leading causes of disability and mortality in old people. Dementia has a serious threat to the health of the elderly, which makes a serious burden on the state, society and family. Thus, it is an urgent need for effective interventions of treating dementia. Aspirin is a commonly drug which is used to treat headache and fever in daily life. In current, there is a few trials about the role of aspirin in Alzheimer’s disease. The role of aspirin in Alzheimer’s disease is still unclear. Therefore, I had searched some evidence about the role of aspirin in Alzheimer’s disease in order to provide doctors or patients with some useful information.
