Alzheimer's Disease Targeted Libraries

Alzheimer's disease targeted librariesDuring the past decades, several agents have been approved that enhance cognition of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. However, the effectiveness of these treatments are limited or controversial and they do not modify disease progression. Recent advances in understanding AD pathogenesis have led to the development of numerous compounds that might modify the disease process. Taking into account AD complexity, it becomes clear that polypharmacology with drugs targeting different sites could be the future treatment approach and a majority of the recent drugs under evaluation seems to act on multiple targets.


Otava offers 29 Alzheimer's disease Targeted Libraries designed with Ligand-based and Receptor-based approach. These libraries are proposed for screening in AD-associated research and drug development projects.

  • the libraries contain drug-like compounds only
  • all the compounds are in stock
  • cherry picking is available

In this collection of targeted libraries we included those activities which fall into two Alzheimer's treatment categories: (i) disease-modifying treatments that target and reduce the secondary pathologies of the disease, leading to the cessation or the reversal of disease progression; and (ii) symptomatic treatments that treat the tertiary cognitive symptoms of the disease and protect from further cognitive decline.


All the targeted libraries contain molecules with increased potential for CNS bioavailability. Filtering by polar surface area parameter (PSA) which discriminates CNS penetrating compounds, we selected only those compounds having increased BBB permeability.
