Specialists worked on a 5-HT6R activity blocking compound. 5-HT6R receptors are integrated into nerve cell membranes and can react to certain external signals. The positive results of the studies mean that researchers can move on to clinical trials to verify the safety and effectiveness of a drug that could potentially treat one of the most serious diseases of our time.
