To address the receptor dysfunction associated with several neurological diseases, scientists have provided novel insights into a protein-protein interaction that could lead to more effective treatments.
A new drug-like compound has been developed which reportedly prevents the body from producing a protein that is often at the root of Parkinson's disease.
Molecular drivers of Parkinson's disease have been revealed by scientists who also determined how they impact the functions of genes involved in the condition and the results may point to potential new treatments.
Currently, there is no licensed treatment to slow or stop the progression of Parkinson’s disease. However, a team at Sheffield University in the UK are currently working to identify compounds that target the dopaminergic brain cells affected by the disease. Nikki Withers speaks to Dr Heather Mortiboys to hear how…
