    How it works

    Pathological changes in dementia such as Alzheimer’s Disease involve cholinergic neuronal pathways that project from the basal forebrain to the cerebral cortex and hippocampus. These pathways are known to be involved in attention, learning and memory and other cognitive processes. Rivastigmine, a brain-selective acetyl- and butyryl-cholinesterase inhibitor of the carbamate type, is thought to facilitate cholinergic neurotransmission by slowing the degradation of acetylcholine released by functionally intact cholinergic neurons. Data from animal studies indicate that rivastigmine selectively increases the availability of acetylcholine in the cortex and hippocampus. Thus, Exelon may have an ameliorative effect on cholinergicmediated cognitive deficits associated with Alzheimer’s Disease and with Parkinson’s disease. In addition, there is some evidence that cholinesterase inhibition could slow the formation of amyloidogenic beta-amyloid-precursor protein (APP) fragments, and thus of amyloid plaques, which are one of the main pathological features of Alzheimer’s Disease.
