ZnDTSM for Huntington's disease
National Health and Medical Research Council
Huntingtons disease is a devastating neurological disorder, with no drugs currently available to cure or treat the underlying cause. Our recent laboratory work on a drug called PBT2 was the foundation of a encouraging clinical trail for this disease. Here, we propose to investigate a drug called Zn(DTSM) for this disease, which has similar properties to PBT2, but we expect will have a greater effect.
