Study Reveals a Crucial Feature Common to Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and Huntington's Diseases

RitterFig.jpg

A study has found that abnormal proteins found in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases share a similar ability to cause damage when they invade brain cells. The finding suggests that an effective treatment for one neurodegenerative disease might work for other neurodegenerative diseases as well.
