Artificial Intelligence Can ‘See’ Progression of Ills Like Huntington’s in Blood Sample, Study Says

Artificial intelligence (AI) can predict disease progression using blood samples, a first long-term study of the molecular changes underlying neurodegeneration reports. Scientists at McGill University trained an AI algorithm to analyze blood and post-mortem brain tissue from 1,969 people with Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease. From the blood…

Study Finds Abnormal Neural Development May Contribute to Huntington’s Disease, Offering New Therapeutic Strategy

Abnormal development of neural tissues may precede neurodegeneration in early-onset juvenile forms of Huntington’s disease, a recent study has found. Researchers also showed how targeting the cellular pathway involved in this process might be an effective strategy to restore normal neural development. Their study, “Expanded huntingtin CAG…
