Hitting 'reset' in protein synthesis restores myelination: Suggests new treatment for misfolded protein diseases, such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth, Alzheimer's

Neuroscientists show how turning down synthesis of a protein improves nerve, muscle function in a common neuropathy. A potential new treatment strategy for patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is on the horizon. This research may also have relevance for other diseases that result from misfolded proteins, including Alzheimer?s disease, Parkinson?s, multiple sclerosis, Type 1 diabetes, cancer and mad cow disease.
