The Blanchette Rockefeller Neurosciences Institute Identifies Groundbreaking New Therapies for Prevention and Treatment of Alzheimer's Disease

strains.  BRNI used a difficult training regimen for the mice in order to reveal that significant cognitive deficits occurred five months before plaques were detected in their brains, providing evidence that plaques and tangles are not at the root of the disease.

Treatments of Bryostatin and similar compounds synthesized at BRNI that target the enzyme PKCepsilon, which controls the creation of synapses at the molecular level, were administered for twelve weeks during the study.  While the compounds promoted the growth of new synapses and preservation of existing synapses, they also stopped the decrease of PKCepsilon and the increase of soluble beta amyloid, meaning that the treatments could be used to prevent the familiar hallmarks of Alzheimer's Disease, the plaques and tangles.  BRNI has received approval to move forward with Phase II clinical testing for Bryostatin to treat Alzheimer's Disease, which is set to begin within the next several months.  

The synaptogenic BRNI drugs have also shown potential for the treatment of traumatic brain injury (TBI), as recently reported in the journal Neurobiology of Disease, and stroke described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science in 2008 and 2009.

The target of the synaptogenic compounds is the same molecule identified as a biomarker for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease in clinical trials conducted by BRNI and published in Neurobiology of Aging in 2010.  As a result of that study, researchers at the Institute are now working to develop a skin test for identifying Alzheimer's Disease in its early stages before significant progression.  

This study is part of BRNI's ongoing commitment to bridging the gap between fundamen
