Application

Thalidomide has been used to study its neuropathological effects in mouse models of Alzheimer′s disease (AD). This study reported that long term administration of thalidomide causes beta-secretase inhibition and subsequently alleviates amyloid-like pathology. Furthermore, thalidomide has also been used to evaluate its teratogenic functions. Thalidomide was found to affect endodermal differentiation and neural development in differentiating human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells.
