The research team at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland have discovered how the body protects itself against the onset of motor neuron disease.
A report in the Irish Times says that the breakthrough will immediately open up new treatment options.
Further research is already showing that symptoms can be reduced and life expectancy can be increased in mice that develop motor neuron disease according to research team leader Professor Jochen Prehn.
He told the Irish Times, “It is significantly better than the best current treatment. You can significantly delay the onslaught of the symptoms and improve survival.”
