The book summarizes the role of multiple enzyme targets and strategies to design and develop novel drug candidates for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Insights from researchers across the globe from diverse fields are presented in a thematic volume.
The chapters highlight current information scientists have unraveled about the origin, pathogenesis and prevention of AD. The contributions consider both established and emerging drug targets viz. Tau proteins, TREM, and microglia. Topics covered in the book include multi-target anti-Alzheimer's agents, epigenetic modifications, and the role of specific proteins like TMP21 and Tau in AD. A section dedicated to pharmacological treatments discusses the significance of tubulin-modifying enzymes, memantine, and glutamate antagonists. Enzymatic targets for drug discovery are thoroughly examined, focusing on cholinesterase, secretases, and other enzymes. Additionally, the book explores innovative nano-carrier-based drug delivery methods, emphasizing the crucial role of nanotechnology in effective Alzheimer's treatment.
The book aims to inform students and researchers in the field of neuroscience, medicine and pharmacology about current research and biochemical nuances of AD pathogenesis and enzymatic drug targeting strategies.
