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....

Scientists at the University of Liverpool and Callaghan Innovation in New Zealand have developed a new chemical approach to help harness the natural ability of complex sugars to treat Alzheimer's disease. The team used a new chemical method to produce a library of sugars, called heparan sulphates, which are known to control the formation of the proteins in the brain that cause memory loss. Heparan sulphates are found in nearly every cell of the body, and are similar to the natural...

2013-05-24 12:47:59

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While the recent failure of a potential Alzheimer´s disease treatment is bad news for patients, it serves as an important reminder of the importance of thorough pre-clinical testing of experimental drugs before beginning human trials. According to a group of University of Florida researchers, tests of the anti-cancer drug bexarotene failed to stop the formation of the amyloid brain plaques that are associated with Alzheimer´s...


Word of the Day
cock-a-hoop
  • Exultant; jubilant; triumphant; on the high horse.
  • Tipsy; slightly intoxicated.
This word may come from the phrase 'to set cock on hoop,' or 'to drink festively.' Its origin otherwise is unclear. A theory, according to the Word Detective, is that it's a 'transliteration of the French phrase 'coq a huppe,' meaning a rooster displaying its crest ('huppe') in a pose of proud defiance.' Therefore, 'cock-a-hoop' would 'liken a drunken man to a boastful and aggressive rooster.'
