Bexarotene is a highly specific RXR agonist and is currently FDA approved with a favorable side effect profile. Studies in our laboratory have shown that treatment of APP/ PS1 animals with bexarotene for only 3 days results in a dramatic induction of ApoE and ABCA1 and the rapid reversal of AD-associated pathological hallmarks including reduction in amyloid deposition and deficits in behavior as well as neural networks.
