We know that most of the diseases of the brain that we’re seeing that are degenerative, seem to be associated with the accumulation of abnormal proteins. So proteins and natural things that are found in the brain, but they go rogue. They might tangle up, they may become accumulated.
Whether they’re causing the disease, we’re not entirely sure of, but one of the big thoughts that we have in this space, for treatments and cures, is what can we do about those proteins? Is there a way to untangle them, stop them tangling, stop them moving from one cell to another. And the good news is that people are looking at all of those things. There are treatments that are being designed where we can try and block those processes and hopefully stop cell death.
