Biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.

BIOMARKAPD

Neurodegenerative disorders, represented mostly by Alzheimer's disease (AD) and Parkinson's disease (PD), are characterised by progressive neuronal impairment and death. In spite of the brain's known capacity for regeneration, lost neurons generally cannot be replaced. Therefore, drugs aimed at inhibiting neurodegenerative processes are likely to...

Smart Cholesterol-Mopping Polymer Nanoparticles in Niemann-Pick Disease Type C

NanoMop

Niemann-Pick Disease Type C (NPC), also known as “childhood Alzheimer’s”, is a rare genetic disorder caused by the accumulation of cholesterol particularly in the brain with subsequent cognitive and mobility decline. In the EU NPC has an incidence of 1 per 100,000 people. Most cases are detected during childhood and progress to cause life...
