Scientists gain insight into motor neurone disease

18 November 2008

Scientists have identified a molecule which could be key to understanding the cause of motor neurone disease (MND) and other neurodegenerative disorders. 

Prof Patricia Salinas

The team, from University College London and King's College London, showed the molecule, Wnt3, plays a key role in establishing connections between nerve cells and the muscles they control. 

Lead researcher Professor Patricia Salinas said: "The work we are publishing today puts an important piece of the puzzle in place and offers up a new possibility for developing drugs to treat MND and other neurodegenerative diseases."
