Researchers report activating microglia may help reduce the imbalance between neuroprotection and neurotoxicity for neurodegenerative diseases.
Researchers have identified a mechanism that may reduce the toxic aggregation of the huntingtin protein. The findings could lead to new treatment options for Huntington's patients.
Researchers have identified a reduced exchange of glutamine between astrocytes and neurons in a new Huntington's disease study.
Researchers have identified a genetic overlap between rheumatoid arthritis and Huntington's disease. The findings could open the door to developing new therapeutic targets and medications to combat both conditions.
Researchers have identified an over accumulation of iron in the mitochondria of mice genetically engineered to have Huntington's disease.
Gene expressions in the brain that occur early in development may explain why some cerebellar stem cell populations behave differently in people with SCA1, researchers report.
