Molecule Called Trehalose Lowered Inflammation and Preserved Vision in Sanfilippo Mouse Model, Study Reports

Treating a mouse model of Sanfilippo with a small molecule, called trehalose, may be a viable therapeutic approach for people with this syndrome, researchers suggest. Their study, “Trehalose reduces retinal degeneration, neuroinflammation and storage burden caused by a lysosomal hydrolase deficiency” was published in the journal Autophagy. Autophagy…
