Etazolate is a phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) inhibitor and GABAA receptor modulator that also stimulates alpha-secretase activity and neurotrophic soluble amyloid precursor protein (sAPPalpha) production, currently developed as a possible Alzheimer's disease therapeutic. In this study two doses of etazolate were tested for cognitive effects in normally aged(More)
