Description

Tau is a microtubule-associated protein, and abnormal tau function has been proposed to play a role in the development and progression of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). TPI-287 is an stabilizer of microtubule dynamics, and the stabilization of microtubules is hypothesized to compensate for the loss of tau function in AD. The purpose of this study is to determine the dose of TPI-287 that is safe and tolerable in people with mild to moderate AD, as well as to measure the properties and preliminary efficacy of TPI-287.
