Researchers report Alzheimer's disease may actually be a collection of different disease that should be treated independently with different approaches.
A new probe which allows researchers to quantify folded and misfolded protein levels in a cell could help pave the way for drug treatments for misfolding diseases such as Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers discover alpha-synuclein proteins can morph into different strains. This can promote misfolding of other disease proteins associated with neurodegenerative diseases.
Using sophisticated imaging techniques, researchers observe a molecular protein folding process which could help better understand and treat neurodegenerative diseases and cancers.
