  • Publication number: 20160024073
    Abstract: There are provided, imer alia, compounds and methods for lowering total AB peptide production by inhibiting the catalytic activity of gamma-secretase. Since all of the major AB peptide variants, including the pathogenic AB42 as known in the art, are ultimately generated by gamma-secretase-mediated proteolysis of APP-C99 (i.e., the beta-secretase-mediated cleavage product of the amyloid protein precursor IAPPI), one approach to therapeutic intervention (e.g., intervention in Alzheimer's Disease, AD) relates to lowering total AB peptide production by inhibiting the catalytic activity of gamma-secretase.

  • Patent number: 6521594
    Abstract: The invention provides cyclic peptides which inhibit platelet aggregation without causing prolonged bleeding time. The invention provides RGD or KGD containing peptides which are cyclized and contain hydrophobic amino acids adjacent to the carboxy terminus of the RGD sequence. Peptides of this nature are also provided which contain in addition to the hydrophobic amino acid an adjacent positively charged amino acid. Such peptides have a high affinity for the receptor IIb/IIIa and a low affinity for the fibronectin and vitronectin receptors. Such peptides can be administered in a suitable physiologically acceptable carrier to therapeutically treat thrombosis.
