New RAGE inhibitor shows promise against Alzheimer's

In continuation on drug discovery for Alzheimer's disease....
New RAGE inhibitor shows promise against Alzheimer's: Researchers have taken another crack at a promising approach to stopping Alzheimer's disease that encountered a major hurdle last year. In research published this week in the Journal of Clinical Investigation, scientists have developed a compound that targets a molecular actor known as RAGE (Receptor for Advanced Glycation End Products), which plays a central role in mucking up the brain tissue of people with the disease.
