Protective brain protein reveals gender implications for autism, Alzheimer’s research

3 febrero 2015

Both autism and Alzheimer’s disease can have tragic consequences for sufferers and their families. Now a new study may offer insight into the pathology of both autism and Alzheimer’s by revealing that different activities of certain proteins in males and females cause gender-specific tendencies toward these diseases. The research may lead to new drugs for potential future therapeutics to treat both illnesses.
