New Alzheimer's Disease Target and a Potentially Broad Drug Discovery Approach

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Researchers have identified a new target in Alzheimer's disease--the natural substrate of an enzyme that itself has long been a target for AD drug development. That the molecule appears to be druggable is itself a surprising observation that may offer valuable insight into how to improve AD drugs. More than that, however, it suggests that substrates of protease inhibitors may provide a completely new set of drug targets in a variety of diseases.
