New tau regulators and therapeutic targets for neurodegenerative disorders discovered

Neurodegenerative diseases affect millions of people worldwide and as our life expectancy increases, more individuals are expected to be affected in the coming decades. Tauopathies such as Alzheimer’s disease are a class of neurodegenerative disorders involving an accumulation of tau proteins, which eventually results in massive loss of brain cells. There is little consensus about the underlying causes and no effective treatments are available currently for these disorders.
