Interfering in the Spread of Alpha-Synuclein to Treat Synucleopathies

Researchers here demonstrate a method of interfering in the spread of alpha-synuclein aggregates, an approach that may slow the progression of synucleopathies such as Parkinson's disease. Like a number of other age-related neurodegenerative conditions, these are associated with and probably driven by the growing presence of specific misfolded or damaged proteins. The ideal approach is to find ways to safely remove these proteins, or understand and resolve the underlying reasons for their accumulation, both of which are paths that are so far proving to be more challenging than expected.
