Merck (NYSE: MRK), known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, and GE Healthcare today announced a clinical study collaboration, license and supply agreement for use of [18F]Flutemetamol, an investigational positron emission tomography (PET) imaging agent, to support Merck's development of MK-8931, a novel oral beta amyloid precursor protein site cleaving enzyme (BACE) inhibitor and Merck's lead investigational candidate for Alzheimer's disease (AD).

The study revealed that loss of NEU1 activity was linked with a build-up in lysosomes of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) that they identified as a natural target of the enzyme.
It has been shown that early-onset AD, accounting for about 5% of total AD cases, afflicts people at the age of 30 to 60, and is mainly caused by mutations of tree genes coding for the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and presenilin 1/2 on chromosomes 21, 14, and 1, respectively.

AB peptides are "cut" out from a larger protein called the amyloid precursor protein (APP) by an enzymatic "scissor" called B-secretase, and aggregate to form plaques in the brain regions responsible for memory.
