Parkinson's disease (PD)
Scientists have shown that trapped LC3B protein in brain cells enables Parkinson's disease to spread, presenting a drug target.
Researchers have developed a new tool that can add or remove sugar from proteins, which could be used to treat currently "undruggable" targets.
Mark Mortenson, CSO of Clene Nanomedicine, discusses the use of proprietary gold nanocrystals as catalysts to prevent the progression of, and act as a treatment for, neurodegenerative disease.
Using X-ray crystallography and cryo-electron microscopy, researchers have elucidated the structure of the SARM1 protein, a target for neurodegeneration.
A new study suggests bile acids may act as a valuable biomarker for diagnosing and tracking the progression of Parkinson's disease.
A team has used their new organs-on-a-chip system to replicate the interactions between the brain, liver and colon.
The field of oncology has successfully applied precision medicine approaches to diagnosis and treatment. Success has been driven by a growing understanding of the underlying biology of cancer; the emergence of innovative tools and technologies for biomarker identification and detection; and considerable advocacy by patients, physicians and policymakers that has…
In this article Maria Bernabeu, Group Leader at EMBL, Barcelona, discusses why it is important to research and develop novel therapeutics for cerebral malaria and how her research group intends to develop a 3D blood-brain barrier model for this purpose.
The new approach enables researchers to isolate brain cells associated with Parkinson's disease and study their gene expression patterns.
Researchers demonstrate that transplanting dopaminergic neurons grown from stem cells into the brains of mice improved motor skills.
A new study shows astrocytes derived from monogenic Parkinson’s patients have metabolic alterations that mean they could be contributing to disease progression.
Researchers observed new structures of alpha-synuclein aggregates in their study exploring how the presence of cell membrane phospholipids impacts protein aggregation.
Which immune cells contribute towards immune-induced neurodegeneration and how could this knowledge enable conditions such Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis to be treated?
The Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD) Consortium has released seven papers leveraging its database to study genetic variants and their potential for guiding discovery of safer drugs.
