"Strikingly, we induced PFFNB2 expression in the cortex, and it prevented alpha-synuclein clumps from spreading to the mouse brain's cortex, the region responsible for cognition, movement, personality and other high-order processes."

"Additional tests in mice showed that the PFFNB2 nanobody ... can disrupt and destabilize the structure of existing alpha-synuclein clumps."

""The success of PFFNB2 in binding harmful alpha-synuclein clumps in increasingly complex environments indicates that the nanobody could be key to helping scientists study these diseases and eventually develop new treatments" says Mao, associate professor of neurology.

Hoping the translation from "mice talk" into person talk works...

Is Hopkins needing people currently for clinical trials with this?

i don't know, sorry

Encouraging but i bet it will be years before human clinical trials but hey hoe life's a bitch and then you meet Jesus :)

Unfortunately my HWP and PDD will probably not make it to a cure and PDD is definitely the worst part of PD!

This is what I was looking for. however; the trial does not exist any more?

sorry, i don't know
