Parkinson, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), Alzheimer, stroke, Huntington, epilepsy and head trauma are all sorts of neuro system disorders Neurodegeneration disorders. The current treatment of these disorders are very expensive and inadequate.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has announced that the researchers have discovered a new molecule that can resist the death of brain cells, by discovering a new micro RNA that is capable of stopping neuronal death.
This molecule, a tiny strand of nucleotides called microRNA-29 or miR-29, has already been shown to be in short supply in certain neurodegenerative illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s disease.
This discovery could lead a new treatment to brain cells to survive by preventing the events that causes brain cells to break down and die.
