New therapeutic perspectives for brain injury and disease

Come and discover new encouraging research that could lead to treatments for Alzheimer's disease or stroke.

By Prof. Nancy Rothwell, FRS, School of Biological Sciences, The University of Manchester and Prof. Alain Buisson, Institute of Applied Biology and Biochmistry, University of Caen

Alzheimer’s & Parkinson’s diseases... Epilepsy... Stroke...

The common denominator for these disorders is inflammation. We know it, yet we have no cures or effective treatments. Still, new approaches are being experimentally tested and research advances are encouraging. Scientists are investigating two molecules (IL-1 and Glutamate) that cause inflammation and are responsible, at least in part, for these disorders.
Come and discover how selective blocking of Glutamate receptors and reduction of brain injury caused by IL-1 might present a therapeutic interest in not-too-far a future.
