Patients without ROAF were significantly more likely to have improved mid-term functional outcomes compared to those with ROAF.

USP13 Inhibition Clears Lewy Bodies in a Mouse Model of Parkinson ' s Disease
Many age-related conditions are associated with solid aggregates in tissues that are formed of altered, damaged, or misfolded proteins.

In most cases the proteins involved in aggregate formation can and do appear in lesser amounts in young tissues, but we can point to underlying problems that might explain why aggregates only appear in significant amounts in old tissues. Failure of clearance via fluid flow or the actions of immune cells for intracellular aggregates, or failure of clearance via autophagy within cells, for example. Near a...
