Huntington’s Neurodegeneration May Be Caused by Rampant Immune Processes

May 13, 2016 07:00 am | Magdalena Kegel

 

Neurodegenerative diseases might all be caused by uncontrolled immune processes.Converging evidence suggests that neurodegenerative conditions, such as Huntington’s disease, are caused by persistent inflammatory immune processes that ultimately kill neurons. This insight, presented by researchers at University of Adelaide, Australia, might change the way researchers approach drug development for neurodegenerative diseases and possibly alter the trajectory of unsuccessful attempts during recent decades. Immune surveillance […]

Researchers Review Novel Huntington’s Disease Targets and Therapeutic Approaches

May 12, 2016 07:00 am | Margarida Azevedo

 

reviewOver the last few decades, there has been an increasing number of clinical trials focused on the search of new therapeutic strategies to manage Huntington’s Disease (HD), an incurable neurodegenerative disease characterized by motor, cognitive and psychiatric problems. However, there have been few advances, and research is now focusing on disease-modifying compounds that can slow […]
