A protein called PERK may be a target for treating progressive supranuclear palsy
(DZNE - German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases) The brain disease 'progressive supranuclear palsy' (PSP) is currently incurable and its symptoms can only be eased to a very limited degree. PSP impairs eye movements, locomotion, balance control, and speech. Scientists at the DZNE and the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now discovered a molecular mechanism that may help in the search for effective treatments. A team of researchers led by G ü nter H ö glinger reports on this in the journal 'EMBO Molecular Medicine'. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

I have PSP. The neurologist said: 'I can't do anything for you'
Keith Sw.ie has a rare and fatal neurological disease. Now, he is trying to raise the profile of progressive supranuclear palsy, a condition even most GPs would fail to recogniseIt was his eyes clamping shut that first prompted Keith Sw.ie to talk to his doctor. The supermarket manager was 38 years old and never imagined that the bouts of blindness were the first symptoms of a rare condition that will eventually kill him.Sw.ie has a disease that hardly anyone has heard of: progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP). Often confused with other neuro-degenerative conditions such as Parkinson's disease, PSP is more commonly found in...

Alzheimer's Mouse Model Shows Transmission Of Tangles, Provides More Authentic Model Of Tau Pathology
Brain diseases associated with the misformed protein tau, including Alzheimer's disease and frontotemporal lobar degeneration with tau pathologies, are characterized by neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) comprised of pathological tau filaments. Tau tangles are also found in progressive supranuclear palsy, cortical basal degeneration and other related tauopathies, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy due to repetitive traumatic brain injuries sustained in sports or on the battle field...
