CurePSP is the leading source of information and support for patients and their families, other caregivers, researchers, and healthcare professionals on prime of life neurodegeneration including PSP, CBD, MSA, and related diseases.
Central to PSP are aggregates that form in the brain composed of abnormal clumps of the tau protein, and given enough time, these eventually lead to impaired neuron function, behavioral abnormalities, and cognitive deficits. Therefore, the overall goal of our proposal is straight-forward; if we can devise therapies to prevent the abnormal clumping of tau proteins, then we could potentially prevent the onset or progression of PSP. The results of our study could foster new approaches to inhibit tau acetylation, either in cognitively normal but at-risk individuals (as a preventative therapy), or those clinically diagnosed with PSP (as a treatment strategy).Learn More About This Exceptional Effort
