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...

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....
