Evidence Found That Proteins BMP5/7 May Help Slow Parkinson’s

Scientists have found evidence that BMP5 and BMP7, two bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) that have been found to play a role in the development of dopamine-producing neurons, may help slow or even stop the progression of Parkinson’s disease. They discovered in a mouse model of Parkinson’s that the two proteins were able to prevent the loss of dopamine-producing neurons triggered by the buildup of alpha-synuclein, a hallmark of the disease. “These findings are very promising,…
