Animal study points to a treatment for Huntington’s disease

CHOP gene therapy expert fine-tunes protein signals, improves motor function and reduces brain shrinkage in a neurological disorder By adjusting the levels of a key signaling protein, researchers improved motor function and brain abnormalities in experimental animals with a form of Huntington’s disease, a severe neurodegenerative disorder. The new findings may lay the groundwork of […]
