Though one might think the brains of people who develop Alzheimer's disease (AD) possess building blocks of the disease absent in healthy brains, for most sufferers, this is not true. Every human brain contains the ingredients necessary to spark AD, but while an estimated 5 million Americans have AD – a number projected to triple by 2050 – the vast majority of people do not and will not develop the devastating neurological condition. For researchers like...

Genetic Interactions In Alzheimers Brain

Rebekah Eliason for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center recently discovered key molecular pathways in the brain that lead to late-onset Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of the disorder. Both systems biology and cell biology tools were used in this new study that presents a unique approach to Alzheimer's disease research as well as new possibilities for drug targets. Most Alzheimer research is based on laboratory studies of...

Tiny Molecule May Help Treat Alzheimers

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at Northwestern University say they have been working with a promising new drug-like molecule that could lead to a preventative treatment for Alzheimer's disease, according to their report in the open access journal PLOS ONE. "This is the starting point for the development of a new class of drugs," said lead researcher D. Martin Watterson, a professor molecular biology and biochemistry at Northwestern. "It's possible...

Researchers in Berlin and Munich, Germany and Oxford, United Kingdom, have revealed that a protein well known for its role in Alzheimer's disease controls spindle development in muscle and leads to impaired movement in mice when the protein is absent or treated with inhibitors. The results, which are published in The EMBO Journal, suggest that drugs under development to target the beta-secretase-1 protein, which may be potential treatments for Alzheimer's disease, might produce unwanted side...

Alzheimer's Disease Drug Stopped Mid-Trial
2013-06-17 05:08:38

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Eli Lilly & Co has ended a clinical trial for an Alzheimer's disease drug during the middle of the study after patients showed abnormal liver biochemical tests. The company announced last week that it would be putting a halt to its LY2886721 drug trial. LY2886721, the code-name for the drug, was designed to inhibit beta secretase, which contributes to the buildup of amyloid plaque in the brain that is believed to cause Alzheimer's....
