Sanfilippo Type A Causes Toxic Buildup of Several Molecules in Various Brain Regions, Mouse Study Shows

Sanfilippo syndrome type A leads to toxic accumulation of several molecules in nerve cell axons — the structures responsible for conducting messages — of different brain regions, which correlates with disease progression, according to a mouse study. Researchers believe this toxic accumulation is likely to impair nerve cell communication and…
