The cause of AD is not yet fully understood. Deposition of amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles are among the proposed underlying etiologies; these are the common targets of many current investigational drugs. Oligomannate has a mechanism of action distinct from other agents currently on the market and in clinical trials. As described by Professor Geng Meiyu, the leading inventor of the drug at the Chinese Academy of Sciences Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica, the preclinical studies show that Oligomannate reconditions dysbiosis of gut microbiota, inhibits the abnormal increase of intestinal flora metabolites, modulates peripheral and central inflammation, reduces amyloid protein deposition and tau hyperphosphorylation, and improves cognitive function.
