Marine Carbohydrate Based Therapeutics for Alzheimer Disease-Mini Review

Manigandan V, Karthik R, Saravanan R

Neurological disorders occur due to recognition of neurological repairs and resources are indirectly scarce, especially in low income and developing countries. They are disorders of the central nervous system and common cause of physiological and economic burden worldwide. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias is one of the progressive neurodegenerative disorders which causes memory loss and cognitive impairment due to aggregation of misfolded proteins and neurofibrillar tangles in brain. The failure of the conventional drugs to decline disease progression accompanied with numerous adverse effects has forced the researchers to look for efficient drug candidates from alternate natural resources. The marine reservoir with its large biodiversity and untapped resource potential holds numerous molecules of biomedical and clinical importance. In this review, we hypothesize the utilization of the sulfated polysaccharides as glycobased mimetics, leading to the prevention of aggregation of plaques and protein tangles. With further screening and validation, the carbohydrates from the marine sources, thus hold immense potentials to function as alternative therapeutic agent against neurological disorders.
