It is important that we understand the tools available and that we use them effectively to save as many susceptible young lives as possible.

Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease are the two most common neurodegenerative disorders, affecting over 6 million people in the U.S. Like nearly all of this class of disorders, these two conditions are due to the misfolding and accumulation of proteins in the central nervous system. This new way of viewing these conditions, as protein misfolding disorders, will be presented. We will review amyloid, tau and alpha-synuclein, the proteins that build up respectively in plaques, tangles and lewy bodies. We’ll review currently available therapies and the therapies that are being developed to more directly attack these disorders and hopefully modify the course of the disease.
