Noopept is a proline-containing dipeptide with nootropic and cognition-enhancing involvement (1). In cellular models, it has rescued α-synuclein amyloid toxicity (2). Noopept has also been shown to lead to the expression of NGF and BDNF in rat hippocampus (3). It increases viability of hippocampal HT-22 neurons in a glutamate toxicity model (4). It also has been used in diabetes research, stabilizing blood glucose level and tolerance to glucose load in a streptozotocin diabetic rat model (5).
