Myricanol Derivatives and Uses Thereof for the Treatment of Neurodegenerative Diseases

researchers have found that myricanol derivatives may be an effective treatment option for many neurodegenerative diseases associated with the abnormal accumulation of protein tau including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, pallidopontonigral degeneration, progressive supranuclear palsy and Pick’s disease. This derivative has been shown to reduce aberrant microtubule associated protein tau levels in cells. Myricanol is a known chemical compound that is isolated from the root barks of the Myrica species. Many Myrica species are edible and have been used in folk medicines for many years, proving themselves as a natural and safe treatment option.
