Chronic administration of a new therapeutic agent improves memory in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease with tau deposition.

Abnormal tau hyperphosphorylation and accumulation into neuronal neurofibrillary tangles are linked to neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease. The aim of this study was to test the effects of a new therapeutic agent in a mouse model of tau deposition (Tg4510 mice). Mice treated with test agent-1 showed improvements in learning and memory compared to the control mice together with a reduction in tau oligomers in hippocampi homogenates.

Assessment of Oral LISPRO Treatment in Ameliorating Amyloid and Tau Pathology in Transgenic Alzheimer’s Mice Model

Ionic co-crystals of lithium salicylate with organic proline (LISPRO) showed better safety and pharmacokinetic profile of lithium in plasma and brain of wild-type and transgenic Alzheimer mice model compared to lithium salts.

CiPA Phase 2 Study: validation of an automated microelectrode array (MEA) assay of hiPSC-derived cardiomyocyte electrophysiology for cardiac safety evaluation

These results support the use of hSC-CM and MEA technology for preclinical assessment of proarrhythmic risk within the proposed CiPA paradigm, and, more generally, demonstrate that automation of the CM-MEA assay can achieve high reliability and throughput for cardiac risk assessment in vitro.

Modulation of GPRC6A Signaling to Mitigate Tauopathies

Overall, our data suggest that decreased GPRC6A signaling reduces tau pathology. Further studies is required to warrant the role of GPRC6A in amino acid sensing associated autophagy or other protein degradation mechanisms. GPRC6A allosteric antagonists may potentially find utility as novel drugs to treat tauopathies and related disorders.

Amyloid Beta Nano Particle used to Sensitize Dendritic Cells as a Therapeutic Vaccine against Alzheimer's disease

This project researches the use of immunotherapy to combat Alzheimer's disease. This is achieved by exposing dendritic cells, antigen presenting cells, to amyloid beta in order to sensitize the cell. The results indicate that a mutant form of amyloid beta was successful in producing anti-amyloid-beta antibodies and in improving behavior in the mice.
