Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, prion diseases, Huntington’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease undeniably wreak havoc on the system of the body. The catastrophic effects of neurodegenerative diseases are felt by the reality of being incurable and the resulting effect of the progressive degeneration of the individual’s physical and mental stature. Through continuous research, experimentation, and an understanding of how neurodegenerative diseases develop and function, scientific tactics against the development and progression of these diseases will be uncovered. The abnormal aggregation of proteins is largely attributed to the development of neurodegenerative diseases. In the instance of abnormal protein aggregation, the study of proSAAS, an anti-aggregate chaperone protein, is newfound and viewed as profound in the scientific community.
