Alzheimer's is common, costly and harms patients and their caregivers, but there are no effective treatments to slow the disease. This is bad news for companies. Caregivers are absent and distracted employees. Fortunately, companies can accelerate the pace of studies to discover treatments.

Contributors : Laszlo Nagy ; Zoltan SimandiSeries Type : Genome binding/occupancy profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusA growing number of pieces of evidence suggest the importance of Retinoid X Receptor (RXR)-mediated pathways in neurogenesis and the dysregulation of this signaling in neurodegenerative disorders, such as Alzheimer`s or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. The data presented here identify the RAR:RXR and LXR:RXR-mediated transcriptional program in embryonic stem cells, neural progenitors and terminally differentiated neurons.

Authors: de Biase S, Nilo A, Gigli GL, Valente M Abstract INTRODUCTION: Narcolepsy is a chronic sleep disorder characterized by a pentad of excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS), cataplexy, sleep paralysis, hypnagogic/hypnopompic hallucinations, and disturbed nocturnal sleep. While non-pharmacological treatments are sometimes helpful, more than 90% of narcoleptic patients require a pharmacological treatment. Areas covered: The present review is based on an extensive Internet and PubMed search from 1994 to 2017. It is focused on drugs currently in development for the treatment of narcolepsy. Expert opinion: Currently t...

The objective of the current study was to examine whether causal overlap between ASD and ADHD traits can be accounted for by genetic and environmental risk factors that are shared with neuroticism. We performed twin-based structural equation modeling using self-report data from 12 items of the Neo Five-Factor Inventory Neuroticism domain, 11 Social Responsiveness Scale items, and 12 Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale items obtained from 3,170 young adult Australian individual twins (1,081 complete pairs). Univariate analysis for neuroticism, ASD, and ADHD traits suggested that the most parsimonious models were those with additiv...
