Previous studies showed that the medications known as GLP-1 agonists made by Danish pharma


giant Novo Nordisk improved the cognitive behaviour and pathological features in Alzheimer’s disease


patients and animals. This may be related to the improvement of glucose metabolism in the brain.


However, their mechanisms have not been clear.


To explore, a team from Shanxi Medical University, prescribed semaglutide, the active ingredient in the


drugs, to mice with mutations associated with Alzheimer’s.


The results showed that semaglutide, besides improving glucose metabolism in the brain, led to an


improvement in learning and memory. It also decreased in amyloid beta plaques and neurofibrillary


tangles — hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.


“The study revealed that semaglutide reduces pathology of Alzheimer’s disease animals such as memory


impairment,” the researchers said in the paper published in the journal Neuropharmacology.


Even as semaglutide is currently in phase III clinical trials in Alzheimer’s patients, the study “adds


important information of how the drug protects neurons in the brain”, the researchers noted.
