A series of N-terminus benzamides of glycine-based symmetric peptides, linked to m-xylylenediamine and 3,4'-oxydianiline spacers, were prepared and tested as inhibitors of beta-amyloid peptide Abeta(1-40) aggregation in vitro. Compounds with good anti-aggregating activity were detected. Polyphenolic amides showed the highest...
