Caption: Galantamine. Computer model of a molecule of the Alzheimer's drug galantamine, marketed under the name Reminyl. Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (green), hydrogen (white), nitrogen (blue) and oxygen (red). Galantamine belongs to a class of drugs known as acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. It inhibits the enzyme acetylcholinesterase, which destroys the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Lack of neurotransmitters is thought to play a role in Alzheimer's disease, a common cause of dementia in the elderly. Galantamine does not cure the disease, or slow its progression, but it can improve cognitive function.
