- Their discovery centres around the damage of mitochondrial DNA in brain cells and its potential as an early biomarker for the disease.
- As this condition affects over 10 million individuals worldwide, these findings hold significant promise for the future of diagnostics and treatments.
- With the implications of these damaged DNA pieces likened to an unchecked forest blaze, the research provides hope and a fresh direction in understanding and treating this condition.
