Defective stem cells grown in the lab revealed a signalling pathway linked to frontotemporal dementia (FTD). Prof Philip Van Damme said: “Our findings suggest that signalling events required for neurodevelopment may also play major roles in neurodegeneration."
“Targeting such pathways, as for instance the Wnt pathway presented in this study, may result in the creation of novel therapeutic approaches for frontotemporal dementia.”
