Discovery about Huntington’s disease may apply to other neurodegenerative disorders, like Alzheimer’s and frontotemporal dementia.
In this exclusive interview with Young Kwon, CEO of Alchemab, we discuss new platforms that are revolutionising how researchers identify naturally occurring antibodies in resilient individuals, opening up new possibilities for the development of disease-modifying therapies.
Researchers have developed a new method that enables high-throughput screening of Huntington’s disease organoids.
Senior scientist Dr Tony Oosterveen discusses bit.bio’s new ioDisease Model portfolio, including new models for Huntington’s disease to help advance in vitro research and drug discovery.
Researchers used advanced microscopy and proteomics to unveil new findings on Huntington's disease and open avenues to future treatments.
Scientists have discovered a signalling pathway alteration in embryos with Huntington’s disease, paving the way for ground-breaking treatments.
Guided by precise biomarker tests, therapeutic vaccines targeting the pathology of neurodegenerative disease could provide solutions to the impending global crisis in dementia. As Dr Andrea Pfeifer, Co-Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Director of AC Immune, describes here, current work is both establishing the targets that those vaccines must address…
Scientists unveiled how a DNA repair protein may prevent Huntington’s disease, presenting a new target in future therapies.
How engineered RNA binding proteins delivered in vivo by gene therapy could treat myotonic dystrophy
In this article, Dr Jim Burns discusses promising pre-clinical results of how a new platform could treat the root cause of many devastating genetic diseases including myotonic dystrophy type 1.
Researchers have reported that nano-micelles can be used to efficiently deliver CRISPR-Cas9 to edit genes in the brains of mice.
Using NMR spectroscopy, researchers have partially observed the structure of heat shock proteins that bind to proteins that cause Huntington's disease.
Researchers have found the TBK1 enzyme regulates the degradation and clearance of the huntingtin protein, making it a drug target for Huntington's disease.
Researchers show that the mutated huntingtin protein associated with Huntington’s disrupts the transport of essential proteins within the neuron, potentially highlighting an early cause of the disease.
