NEW YORK, Nov. 6, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Intellect Neurosciences, Inc. (OTCBB:ILNS), a biopharmaceutical company engaged in the discovery and development of disease-modifying therapeutic agents for the treatment of Alzheimer's and other neurological diseases, announced today scientists at Northwestern University have published new findings on its tau oligomer selective TOC-1 monoclonal antibody. These new data explain a phenomenon concerning the role of aggregated oligomeric tau as an inhibitor of fast axonal transport (FAT). FAT is the mechanism by which newly synthesized membrane and other proteins made in the nerve cell body essential for neuronal membrane function and maintenance are provided to the synapse.
