Neurodegenerative disease mechanism and potential drug identified – University of California – Davis

Two new studies of progressive, neurodegenerative diseases linked to defects in cells’ mitochondria offer hope for developing a new biomarker for research and diagnostics, and a drug for treating such diseases, report researchers at the University of California, Davis.

Both studies, co-authored by biochemist Gino Cortopassi in the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, have implications for Friedreich’s ataxia, a rare, inherited disease that affects 6,000 people in the United States.
