  • A new study challenges the concept that protein aggregates in the brain are the direct cause of cell death in neurodegenerative diseases.
  • The researchers noted the culprit is the body’s inability to turn off the stress response in brain cells.
  • The findings highlight the potential for using certain drugs to deactivate the brain’s stress response and maintain the activity of a newly identified protein complex, SIFI.
  • The new insights shift the focus from targeting protein aggregates to managing the stress response mechanism and introduce the potential for new treatment strategies.

Many neurodegenerative conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD), have been linked to the buildup of protein aggregates in the brain, leading researchers to believe that these protein clumps are responsible for the death of brain cells.
