Parkinson gene: Nerve growth factor halts mitochondrial degeneration

Neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s disease involve the death of thousands of neurons in the brain. Nerve growth factors produced by the body, such as GDNF, promote the survival of the neurons; however, clinical tests with GDNF have not yielded in any clear improvements. Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology in Martinsried and… Parkinson gene: Nerve growth factor halts mitochondrial degeneration
