Disrupting production of sphingolipids in neurons improved neurodegeneration symptoms and increased survival in a mouse model.
 
 Researchers identify a new risk factor for multiple neurodegenerative diseases
 
Researchers identify a new risk factor for multiple neurodegenerative diseasesScientists at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), have identified a new risk factor for multiple neurodegenerative diseases.
 
 
 New insight on mechanism of prions brings hope for treating neurodegenerative diseases
 
New insight on mechanism of prions brings hope for treating neurodegenerative diseasesPrions are a class of misfolded proteins that form aggregates called "amyloid fibrils." These aggregates are the main culprit behind severe mammalian neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's.
