Scientists identify molecular system that could help develop treatments for Alzheimer’s disease

Scientists from the University of Southampton have identified the molecular system that contributes to the harmful inflammatory reaction in the brain during neurodegenerative diseases.

An important aspect of chronic neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s or prion disease, is the generation of an innate inflammatory reaction within the brain.

Results from the study… Scientists identify molecular system that could help develop treatments for Alzheimer’s disease
