A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11912699B2) discloses a compound that shows promising results in the degradation of Tau protein, a key factor in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's. The compound, when tested on CHOK1 Tau P301 L cells, demonstrated Tau protein degradation of over 50% after 48 hours of treatment, highlighting its potential therapeutic value in combating such conditions. Additionally, the compound also showed efficacy in an in vivo tauopathy mouse model, further supporting its role in targeting pathologic tau aggregates.

Moreover, the patent also covers a pharmaceutical composition containing the compound along with a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. This composition may further include an additional bioactive agent, such as anti-neurodegenerative agents or P-gp inhibitors like Amiodarone, Azithromycin, and Verapamil. The inclusion of these agents aims to enhance the therapeutic effects of the compound in treating Alzheimer's disease. The patent also outlines a method for treating Alzheimer's disease by administering the disclosed compounds and their pharmaceutically acceptable salts to individuals in need of such treatment, offering a potential new avenue in the fight against this debilitating condition.
