Targets identified for developing therapies for IBMPFD
Updated: Apr 15, 2018
"Correcting the functions of these disease-associated proteins could lead to a safe treatment for IBMPFD and other fatal degenerative diseases," said Tsui-Fen Chou, PhD, an LA BioMed researcher and corresponding author of the study. "More research must be done to screen large panels of compounds to identify potential drugs that may correct the malfunction in the mutated protein that causes this devastating inherited disorder. But these are promising findings for a disorder that has no cure or means of prevention—other than choosing against having children to ensure the next generation doesn't inherit the mutation."
