Caused by the death of cells in the front and sides of the brain, the disease can lead to dramatic changes in a patient’s personality and behavior,… UCLA scientists uncover potential target for treating common form of early-onset dementia   



Gladstone scientists identify biological mechanism that plays key role in early-onset dementia

Using animal models, scientists at the Gladstone Institutes have discovered how a protein deficiency may be linked to frontotemporal dementia (FTD) - a form of early-onset dementia that is similar to Alzheimer’s disease. These results lay the foundation for therapies that one day may benefit those who suffer from this and related diseases that… Gladstone scientists identify biological mechanism that plays key role in early-onset dementia
