Cellular Respiration Compound May Ease Symptoms, Reduce Neuronal Loss, Study Finds
Delivering a compound called nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide to the striatum, a key brain region involved in motor control, can ease Parkinson’s symptoms and reduce dopamine-producing neuronal loss in a mouse model of the disease, a study finds. The study, “Protective effects of β-nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide against motor deficits and dopaminergic neuronal damage in a mouse model of Parkinson’s disease,” was ... read more
