one guess what it is (& no peaking below!)
- α-synuclein, yes the very same neuronal protein thought to be the culprit behind PD, and that Ambroxol has been found to reduce (I prefer dispose of) by increasing GCase enzyme activity. So can we extrapolate that Ambroxol may be able to help people with Melanoma too? maybe we can, but the science is definitely not there yet to make that link:
"Several studies have shown that melanoma occurs two to six times more frequently in the Parkinson's population than the healthy population," says Dexter Dean, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), who is presenting the work at the meeting. "What's more, the protein involved in Parkinson's disease, α-synuclein, is elevated in melanoma cells."
