Synonyms: R58735
Therapy Type: Small Molecule (timeline)
Target Type: Unknown
Condition(s): Alzheimer's Disease

Sabeluzole has been reported to reduce glutatmate toxicity in part by reducing NMDA-induced inward current (Van der Valk et al., 1993). It also has been shown to affect cytoskeletal stability (Geerts et al., 1996) and tau expression (Uberti et al., 1997).
