(ANSA) - Rome, August 17 - Italian scientists have
discovered a key brain protein which defends against Parkinson's
disease.
The protein, discovered in mice by a team from the Istituto
Nazionale di Neuroscienze (National Institute of Neuroscience),
prevents the onset of the disease, which in Italy alone affects
some 10,000 people each year.
Scientists hope that the discovery of the protein, called
c-Rel, will lead to the successful development of future
therapies.
According to the research, published in the British journal
Brain, when c-Rel doesn't function all the classic symptoms of
the illness appear, including the well-known shaking and
difficulties in moving.
