Cell disposal faults could contribute to Parkinson’s, study finds

A fault with the natural waste disposal system that helps to keep our brain cell ‘batteries’ healthy may contribute to neurodegenerative disease, a new study has found. The research, led by academics at The University of Nottingham and published in the journal Cell Death and Disease, centers on problems with mitochondria – the powerhouses which produce energy within a cell. The results support previous evidence that patients with Parkinson’s Disease have faults with brain mitochondria which contributes to dysfunction and death within their neurons. Read more……..
