ARE ALL NEURODEGENERATIVE DISEASES MADE EQUAL?

SHARESHARESHARE
Various neurodegenerative processes result in the development of diseases like Alzheimer’s (AD), Parkinson’s (PD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), and, arguably, multiple sclerosis (MS). Despite years of research, drug discovery initiatives, and promising clinical trials, these diseases remain incurable. But recent studies have suggested common mechanisms underlying these pathologies. Atypical protein assembly resulting in plaque formation is a common pathological finding in both AD and PD, while neuronal death is a primary (ALS) or secondary (MS) hallmark of the disease. For a detailed look at the mechanisms that drive an array of neurodegenerative diseases, The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to share their research, discuss current therapeutic approaches, and offer their insights.
