Compound May Improve Balance And Coordination In Mice With Parkinson's

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

Researchers at the University of California Los Angeles have created a molecular compound that improves balance and coordination in mice with Parkinson's disease. The drug, CLR01, reduced the level of toxic protein in the brain that is believed to be responsible for the development of Parkinson's disease. CLR01 is known as a "molecular tweezer," and is a complex compound capable of disrupting the formation of toxic clumps of proteins that kill brain neurons that produce dopamine, the neurotransmitter needed to send signals to neurons to control movement. The compound prevents the proteins' negative effects without detectable toxicity or side effects harming normal cells in the brain.
