A hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease is the presence of senile plaques in human brain primarily containing the amyloid peptides Aβ42 and Aβ40. Many drug discovery efforts have focused on decreasing the production of Aβ42 through γ-secretase inhibition. However, identification of γ-secretase inhibitors has also uncovered mechanism-based side effects. One(More)
Effects of high-rise living on infants' development were investigated in 1987-1988 in a high-rise residential area in Tokyo, using questionnaires on the daily behaviors of a total of 1,045 infants, completed by mothers and kindergarten teachers. Infants of high-rise living showed a delayed independence in fundamental daily customs compared with those of(More)
Two investigational compounds (FRM-1, (R)-7-fluoro-N-(quinuclidin-3-yl)benzo[b]thiophene-2-carboxamide and FRM-2, (R)-7-cyano-N-(quinuclidin-3-yl)benzo[b]thiophene-2-carboxamide) resided in rat brain longer than in systemic circulation. In Caco-2 directional transport studies, they both showed good intrinsic passive permeability but differed significantly(More)
Herein we describe the design, synthesis, and evaluation of a novel series of oxadiazine-based gamma secretase modulators obtained via isosteric amide replacement and critical consideration of conformational restriction. Oxadiazine lead 47 possesses good in vitro potency with excellent predicted CNS drug-like properties and desirable ADME/PK profile. This(More)
The G gamma to A gamma ratio of fetal hemoglobin in 120 cord blood samples of Dong ethnic newborns distributed over the Dong Autonomous Regions in Guangxi and Hunan provinces were determined with the method of polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The result showed that a case has the high G gamma value of 81.4% while 119 babies have the normal G gamma values(More)
Training transfer is an important concern for researchers and practitioners due to the huge budget on training but lower estimation of transfer in practical domains. Researches revealed training design, trainees’ characteristics and work environment characteristics are the most important sets of variables in a training context. This study intended to(More)
