Neurological and degenerative disorders

Neurodegenerative disorder  is an umbrella term for a range of conditions which primarily affect the neurons in the human brain. In some cases, the neurodegenerative diseases are incurable and debilitating conditions that result in progressive degeneration or death of nerve cells. These include Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias, Parkinson’s disease (PD) and PD-related disorders, Prion disease, Motor neuron diseases (MND), Huntington’s disease (HD), Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA), Spinal muscular atrophy and others. Each neurodegenerative disease is characterized through its unique aggregated protein. ß-amyloid (Aß) represents as hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, whereas α-synuclein is the key protein in Parkinson’s disease and Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).

Today critical goal of medical research is the prevention and treatment of these neurodegenerative disorders. About 25 million people suffering from dementia and it is generally believed that it will rise to 130 million demented persons by 2050. The lack of effective treatments that can halt or reverse the disease process indicates a huge medical need.
